My hands are so dry, they're cracking, bleeding, the skin burns. If i close my hand, the skin cracks. When i wash them, i actually cry from it burning so much. I've tried every cream out there, and nothing helps. Anyone have an idea on what else i can try? I can't even hold hands with my kids or dh, because it hurts to touch them.


** thank you everyone. I'm going to try the suggestions!

get Corn Huskers Lotion and slather it on before bed and put a pair of gloves on.   Let it soak in all night long.

Try aquaphor on them right after you get out of the shower, slather them up then put socks on your hands overnight. It worked for my husband

A&D ointment, the corn huskers lotion was a good response. Pretty much any kind of oil. Even olive oil. the oils will moisturize them much more than any quick dry lotion would.

I've tried that, but it burns so much to put that on. Even Vaseline burns.
