If your hand is really Dry then you could try the Petroleum Jelly everyday and if you will feel it a little bit better than before then try the Vaseline lotion........

Vaseline Intensive Care or Lubriderm. Either one works wonders! (I have OCD; I should know).

May I ask what OCD is? Lubriderm is ok. I part of my problem is I dont give a product enough time to see if it works before I move on to something differnt. Thank you.

OCD = Obssessive Compulsive Disorder. Most who suffer from this wash their hands too often.

hey i had exactly the same problem and it was horrible, it was reallyuncomfortable till i stopped using scented creams. They make no sense but smell good. The best thing i would say would be vasaline. It really works. Especially before you go to bed and in the morning after your shower. Try it out sure it should work for you.

Do you just put rub the vasaline in or is this a type of lotion?

Have you tried pure shea butter? How about apricot oil or jojoba oil?

I really recommend The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector. You only need to use small amount and this will really help to soften your hands. You can also get some cotton gloves to wear with the cream overnight.
