When all this started my hands would occasionally dry out from all the washing.

This has now escalated into a full on skin condition. It's unslightly and quite painful at times. And I've never had a skin condition/dry skin before.

Dry skin has turned to cracked skin and now in between my fingers is red raw and more painful than ever.

Has anyone else been suffering like this and found a way around it? I'm thinking of just avoiding washing my hands completely for a few days and see if that eases the pain a bit. I'm trying to moisturize like hell which seems to give some relief on my fingertips which are dry and cracked but if anything is making the back of my hand worse.

Try peeling 50 kg's of potatoes in cold water and then come back and complain about chapped hands, keyboard boy!  (seriously I find Lidl's own make "intensive" hand cream very good; it's about 80

How did the vodka turn out ?

Dry skin on the hands is a sure and certain symptom of coronavirus.

That sounds obsessive compulsive. I don't do special corona washing any more.

I wasn't aware of washing my hands radically more but I must have been. Something's changed and it's only affecting the skin on my hands.

I got this during March. I just stopped washing my hands with soap unless post poop or handling raw chicken. That cleared it up in about a week.

Will ensure only one hand wash a day by clenching and baking my turds all day for one scheduled release, and going easy on the chicken for a while. Sorted.

I find this stuff is brilliant (and no, I'm not associated with it in any way).  Generally costs about £7.50 for a 500g bottle that lasts for ages.

Zerobase cream is used for the symptomatic treatment of red inflamed, dry or chapped skin, the protection of raw skin areas and as a pre-bathing emollient for dry/eczematous skin to alleviate dry areas.

As the old saying goes, the first sign of madness is spots on the palms of your hands.  
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the second sign is looking for them.  xD

What soap are you using?

Make sure to use gloves when washing up or cleaning.

Don't use liquid soap, get some proper soap, savon de Marseille.

If not too bad try this as moisturiser. Apply a couple of times a day.

If really bad put this overnight. Horrible and greasy but works.

Doesn’t wearing gloves whilst washing your hands kind of defeat the object?  o.O

I meant washing up the pots and pans xD otherwise yes would defeat the point.

Lots of the children at school developed skin problems with the covid hand washing regime.

My youngest has a bit of a thing about germs and so washes her hands constantly. She recognises her problem and pulls back when they get sore and chapped.  Drives me mad with her germ phobia though.  o.O

Thats good if she can but keep an eye out in case it gets worse, I think in women having a baby often a trigger. My dad has proper OCD. Washes his hands all the time with scolding water and has a phobia of dirty laundry. To the point he can't walk down a road with a Iaunderette. Is very annoying.

Bit ignorant here but isn't the answer barrier cream?

I know my machine minders were prone to contact dermatitis and the wise ones used barrier cream every morning.

Just limit you hand washing to after you have touched anything potentially infected outside your known safe zone /door handles/public toilet seats 😂

Alternatively make a mental note what you've touched and avoid touching your eyes mouth until you've washed your hands. 

Even better, just think, fuck it..

After the loo. 

After being outside the house ie touching surfaces outside.

Ya know I’ve probably started washing them before I make any food as well.

If not excessive washing it's what you're using.

Or stress.

Just use soap. Ordinary soap. Rinse it properly and pat hands dry with kitchen roll.

This is pretty much it. Having a mental note of whether hands are clean or not clean is enough.

I've not used soap to wash my hands other than doing a dump or if they get really manky in maybe 10 years. 

I'm not dead yet and I've yet to food poison myself or anyone else. I've had it once in that period from a restaurant. 

They can show me all the fancy condescending posters they want - I just don't think it's necessary.
