No idea if its the hand soap we are using or the combination of hand sanitizer and frequent washing but my hands are totally fucked. Cracked, bleeding and incredibly sore.

@kaa Sounds familiar. 😬 I have two different medicinal creams for this. Hopefully such a relatively simple solution can help!

@kaa That’s what I had during the Swine-flu in 2009. They aren’t too good now either, but now I use a moisturizing cream to help because of the rough soap. If you’re gonna use it, remember the hands/arms must be dry after washing before applying the moisturizer, or else you can get skin fungus.

@odd @simonwoods yeah we have a cream - might move to soap bars rather than liquid, maybe that will help a little. Another reminder that we’re all in this together.

@kaa when this happened to me the first time, my doctor recommended glycerin soap (Pear soap is one example). Made a huge difference.
