I don't know why, but in the last year or so my hands have gotten a lot dryer than usual. Normally, dry rough hands wouldn't bother me, except it has gotten to bad that around three square inches on my right hand (and just my right hand) around the thumb is so dry it is literally cracked open and almost constantly bleeding.
For obvious reasons, this is a concern in patient care.
Do any of you all have this problem, and how do you correct it?
ETA: I tried putting Vitamin E oil on the area, was this a bad call? I am finding that it is like pure grease.
