  • since it got cold out, my hands

    have gotten so dry
    I put lotion on and wear my gloves
    but am still getting little cuts on some of my fingers

    (do wash my hands a lot because of dog, so am sure that doesn't help)

  • I have this sometimes. I use cheap aqueous cream on my hands, which works wonders. E45 cream is also excellent. You're right to wear your gloves. Do also wear rubber gloves when cleaning. You could also use a medicated hand wash. The right cream will protect your hands, so do keep looking for a thick hand cream. I wouldn't use lotion, as I think the consistency is too thin: you need a nice thick cream. Anyhow, I do hope I've helped.
