Yeah, I need to get back on a probiotic regularly.  I know my gut still needs some helaing.  I'm not saying it doesn't I also have coinfections from lymes disease that are mucking it up I'm sure.  I'm getting there.  My gut is working so much better than it used to be.  It's just taking time.  God is good.  All is well.  But I'm trying to deal with my hands in the meantime.

Quoted from EquiPro
Try to find a natural cream with lanolin in it.  Lanolin works extremely well for this sort of thing.   You can even use 100% lanolin - it's natural and not expensive, but it's very messy.  Beware - a little goes a LONG way!

Do a little test first...I've heard of some people being allergic.  It is made from wool, btw and is a great skin protectant as well as moisturizer.  You could even put a little on your hands before you get them wet and it will help.
Ummm absolutely no offence & not trying to be knowitall, but can I point out a couple of things - lanolin is IN wool naturally, not "made from wool"
& I'm not sure of the process used in extraction, but perhaps the problem some ppl have with lanolin (unless it is 100% pure & organically raised), may have to do with the fact that as sheep wool is commonly drenched with chemicals, they may be included in the lanolin cream (& possibly with other ingredients?)

then get the shea butter. I can't believe how much good it is doing in less than two month my feet went from bleeding to all but healed.  I but it on my feet first thing in morning and again at night cover with cotton socks. It's not greasy, more like butter out of the refrigerator, it will soften once on the skin.

As lola pointed out you need to work from the inside.  While your doing that I second the 100% shea butter.  My feet where really bad this summer, up to the point of bleeding.  This butter is great. Yes it is a miracle treatment.


I also would like to ditto the shea butter suggestion. I tried it on the advice of Victoria and really like the results... especially coupled with increasing my intake of EFA (I use high potency fish oil).

I got something better than luck.  God's provision.  

I'm sorry that I vented.  But I urge you to consider my points.  Like I said, you know a lot and I like your input.  But it just kind of hit me the wrong way, and they have in the past too.  I know you've done a great deal of work with Emily.  And you should be proud.  You're a great Dad.  For sure.  I'm just sensitive.  I admit it.

Put on oil or lotion, then gloves, before washing dishes. Then put on a fresh layer of oil or lotion after you're done with the dishes and the gloves come off.

Yeah, you need to work on internal healing so your skin is stronger, but in the short term you need to keep the skin protected while you work. It would be best (for your hands) if you could get somebody else to wash the dishes and not worry about gloves or constantly re-applying lotion, but if your life is anything like mine, the  dishes will get moldy if you don't personally wash them.

I suffer from this as well. I have been using a scrub brush with a long handle to wash dishes and my hands have not been quite so dry but I didnt' realize that was probably the reason until Victoria mentioned it!

I know how you feel doing so many dishes and always having to put the gloves on. I forget half the time and it seems my hands are always in water. I haven't found any miracle creams, although I have tried many, more natural types. The shea butter sounds like a good suggestion.

Hope you find relief soon! This post is a good reminder for me to be more diligent about the gloves before the cracking starts.

I don't think you could get your hands on some aloe? The inside of an Aloe leaf is great for skin conditions. And no not Aloe that has been processed into some cream. That doesn't work.

Otherwise I also would go with the shea butter. Put it on before going to bed.

And... this may sound crazy, but every now and then I get a manicure and they also do a hand mask. They put a really nice moisturizer on your hands and then you put your hands in some warm paraffin. It seals off the hand and together with the warmth makes your skin really absorb the moisturizer. Afterwards you can just peel off the paraffin. Maybe you can think off some way to do that with the shea butter.

People have commented on Nightshade vegetables causing cracking dry painful skin conditions.  Also Ive used Lubriderm and Aquaphor for similar conditions.  Good luck and God bless you.

I don't think it's a nightshade, because I avoid them, except white potatoes.  I have to admit, I've been eating more lately, so I suppose there could be a connection.  However, I eat them all year round and this only flairs up in the winter.   I personally thinks it's because I use too much hot water, too freqently, and not wearing gloves.  I did wear glove a lot more today, and it helped.  But it didn't take it away completely of course.

For those who use shea butter - I got some and it's so hard I can barely scrape a little bit out of the jar with my fingernails.
How do you use it?

Put the jar in a warm spot, or put the jar in some hot water (making sure the lid is on securely ).

I used some coconut oil on my hands tonight, and they are much better than before I did it. Frodo (puppy) licked a lot of it off, but my hands appreciated the moisture.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

West African shea butter can be pretty firm. I scrape it out with the back of my nail as well and then rub briskly between my palms. Shea butter from East Africa is much softer.

This is what I do it's from Ghana. West Africa, I just peel it off in thin layers.

Maybe the puppy saliva helped Isn't there supposed to be something healing in that?

I know nothing about nightshades & your BT (effect/tolerance etc) but here's a thought - maybe the fact that your body copes with white potatoes all year, is that there are no other environmental factors adding to their effect? ie the colder (drier?) weather conditions as well as the hot water combined in winter...??!!
As I referred to in "Gatherers & perfume fragrance" my skin (face) is not only improving daily (now I am not being constantly exposed to whatever was in those essential oils) but I can eat things that would tip me over the edge on a day/week when I was working... Hence my confusion re never fully knowing that it was the essential oils that were the main protagonist in my dilemma
Obviously if I eat an outright avoid, I would have a problem, but I am talking about things I "should have been able to eat"...

white potatoes are neutral for me.  I suppose I could skip them.  And focus more on sweet potatoes.  But I doubt I'm going to.  I need the calories right now.  I've lost too much weight, and they seem to be helping me combat that.  And they taste great.  I would rather deal with my hands than stop eating a food that is very satisfying and calorie building right now.  


Last night I wore some rubber gloves to bed, with no lotions, and they kind of sweat at night.  And they aren't healed,  but they sweat seems to make them a little better today.  I'll just repeat that for a while.  My wife says you can buy these gloves that they use at spas or something.  But she hasn't found any yet.  Plus, I'm wearing gloves doing the dishes.  Hopefully that will help too.  I do have to wash my hands after going to the bathroom and what not.  So I can't get away from warm water and soap completely.  Hehehhee

Mine would crack to the point of bleeding till I discovered a natural remedy. I spray my hands with rose water then apply glycerine and a pair of cotton gloves before bed. Good luck.

How do you use it?

Another thing I like to do to soften the shea butter is to melt it on a little hot plate and add some oil to it. Whatever oil I'm in the mood for and have on hand - olive, jojoba, grapeseed, whatever. This way you can make it as soft as you like.

Rose water, eh?  Interesting. Where do you get that?

What is glycerin?  I was thinking about regular ole vasoline.  But I'm not really sure if I want "petroletum" on my hands.

Glycerin grosses me out and I avoid it in all of my toiletries.  You can get 100% glycerin (I think) in a lot of drugstores on the bottom of the "lotions" aisle, called, "Corn Husker's Lotion".
