I feel like a snake and my skin is going start sloughing off! Winters are always brutal for me. From the top of my head to the tips of my toes! My scalp is dry and itchy, the bottoms of my feet have to be constantly lotioned or they feel like sandpaper, my hands are dry and red too. AND I wash my hands too much too- I think it is the leftover nurse in me.
The one thing that helps me though is making sure I wear gloves when I go outside. Keep applying lotion on my hands throughout the day, and when I get dressed in the morning I lotion the bottom of my feet before I put my socks on. I'm also running the humidifier non-stop- it does make a difference.
I can't be much help on any products- the lotions I use have to be fragrance free, and for the sensitive or I will break out.
I have: Fibromyalgia, MECFS, Holt-Oram Syndrome, nasal allergies, depression, TMJ,
Married to a wonderful supportive husband & between us we have 4 children & 7 grandchildren
As apples of gold in silver carvings is a word spoken at the right time for it. Prov. 25:11
I wash my hands a lot during cold and flu season, so I use hand soap with moisturizer in it (in addition to applying regular lotion/cream to my hands frequently). The added lotion seems to make the soap a little less harsh. If you can stand fragrance, Bath and Body Works makes a line of anti-bacterial soaps with moisturizer built in. I keep these by all of the sinks, and they are so much easier on my skin than regular hand soaps.
