Split Skin

Split Skin

Do you notice your hands or feet splitting and bleeding, and if so what products do you use to soothe it?

Hi I use Organic coconut oil, all over. My skin is dry due to Sjogrens. I haven't had any problems with it.

Yes, my fingers get very dry and will split and crack too. I use Vaseline or bacitracin before bed (you can put white cotton gloves on to save your sheets and pj's. They sell them in drugstore. During the day use a strong hand cream. I know O'Keefe's Working Hands is one brand; and stores like CVS make an equivalent store brand.

Yes-- lately my hands have been cracking and bleeding with little nicks. I've been using Nivea star dry skin formula. Coconut oil at night.

Yes both Sjogrens, our meds and winter will do a number on our skin.
