Hello, I'm currently a nursing student and my hands are already suffering from being over washed and sanitized. I have the hands of a 70 year old coal miner to begin with and the skin is rough and cracked even further now that I'm required to wash like a fiend. I try to lotion a couple of times during labs and clinicals but I'm still sore and bleeding at the end of the day. Does anyone have a suggestion that could help save my poor hands? I did buy some of that really rich feeling lotion called body butter and started using that at night but can't gauge yet how well it is helping. My hands do drink it up like they'll never see it again but the next school day starts the cycle all over again.
