Dry skin question...

My family has always been big on handwashing since we have chickens, but my son is really having problems with cracked dry skin. Yes he is a little OCD. Any suggestions for me?

  • Corn huskers lotion. You buy it in the lotion aisle at walmart. The amish use it because of the work they do in the fields. It works wonders. IT puts a silk like layer on the skin without the smell or lotion. That or cow udder cream that you also get in the lotion aisle. Corn huskers lotion is in a clear old school looking bottle with a yellow label and cow udder cream is in either a pump or tube container with black cow spots.

  • Aquaphor, the best stuff on Earth. It's made by Eucerin. Just a little bit goes a longway.

  • Whatever lotion you buy, put a little bottle in the bathroom, so he can use it each time he washes his hands.
