What can you do about dry cracked skin?
My skin is severly cracked to the point of bleeding. I use lotions but that does nothing. Could this be a vitamin deficiancy or are some people just suseptable to dry skin?

I have terrible dry skin as well and the only things really help is plenty of water drink 64 ounces of water a day and moist your skin with eucerin cream its think but it works and you'll see the difference..Good luck!!

This has been the worst winter of my life for this. I always have that trouble with my feet in winter, but this year it's my hands, too. Nasty! I will be watching your question and hoping you get some good answers. I have bought Crack Cream and I hope it helps. Good luck.

Drink more water...Use a good lotion, if you put lotion on your hands at night wear gloves...In the morning your hands will be moisturized. Over time the water will take care of the problem.

Just go to a doctor. He or She will know best.

go to the dermatoligist you may have an infection and the doctor could give you better lotion for it

Well your case sounds very severe but a couple of years ago I was suffering from dry itchy and cracked skin. I started using Johnson's baby oil and putting it on all over as soon as I turned off the shower (I keep a bottle in the shower). It has worked miracles. And it doesn't leave an oily film at all. My husband started using it now as well for the same reason.

Here are my suggestions...
-Lotion (but you said that doesn't work)
-Vaseline (this may work)
-See a doctor (dermatologist, expert on skin)
Hope this helps...
*Good Luck*

Use baby oil!

I had dry skin normally, but when I moved to Ohio it got really bad. I use Neutrogena hand cream. It's a small tube and it looks like vaseline but it's not.

If it gets really bad on my hands I will put vaseline all over my hands and put socks on them to hold it overnight while I sleep.

On my legs by the shin I also get dry skin. I like using Neutrogena oil, it smells like sesame. Right now I have Skin So Soft oil, by avon. I do that right after showering to keep the moisture in so they don't itch and bleed.

Good Luck.

PS, Oil of Olay has a bar soap out with Shea Butter, this has helped tremendously also. Soap can dry you out. And they also have a skin moisurizer that you use in the shower.

Use vaseline.

Try Using Aloe Vera straight from the plant and vitamin E cream. If you don't know how to use the plant all you have to do is cut a piece off and squeez the gel out of it and apply. I use it from dry skin to sunburns and it works miracles! and if that doesn't work dry coacoa butter or Shea Butter body lotions.

Drink more water. And do you live in a dry climate? Get a humidifier for your house....sounds like you might need more moisture in the air. Hope this helps.

Go see a dermatologist. They can prescribe meds and creams that are much more powerful than the over the counter stuff you can get.

its this great lotion called vasoline intensive care....worth the money

drink more water

seek the professional help of a doctor. what work for others is not a gaurantee that it'll work for you as EACH human being skin is different.

You will also want to look at the type of soap you are using. Many people when they get dry skin resort to using baby soap, assuming it is more sensitive. The reality is that babies have oily skin, so their soap is designed to get rid of oil, you need something designed to clean you but leave your natural oils. Again, as above, see a doctor. It could be an allergic reaction to something.

use neosprin first to heal the cuts and then when scabbing starts use very dry skin lotion

Have you tried Mederma? If it doesn't get any better..see a dermatologist. And yes, dry skin can be caused by other health conditions...taking vitamins may help. Good luck!

I use Aquaphor and it works really well to prevent dry and cracked skin. I also bought a humidifier and use it at home. Try those 2 things and see if it improves your skin.

People say that there is really several things you can do but there is only two or three things you can do. I only have two of the three. A) You can put on gloves that have lotion inside them. But you would have to do that all night. I dont know if you mean cracks or just scaly skin. A is for craks. Here is B. Now B is for scaley skins. B) Just use lotion all the time. Wait till it is dry and then you can use your hands. But after every 21 hours you need to put it on again.

Peace Out

Hope that helped.

use some neosporin cream or ointment as a lotion.

I'd say Carley's Clear & Smooth Natural Soap Bar & moisturiser!!! It's the BEST!! Everybody LOVE it!!! cuz it's ADDICTIVE & really makes you feels CLEAN!! It seems to cure many skin problem indluding eczema, acne, dermatitis, dry skin & many more!

Carley's Clear & Smooth Moisturiser

Carley's Clear & Smooth Natural Soap Bar (5)

But the bar is SOO big!!! It's 6 ounces per bar!! How big is that?? I suggest you to try their moisturiser (if it's for the body, try their body lotion at their eBay Store) because you'll get FREE 1 bar soap!!! You WILL love their products as much as I do!!

And don't forget, warm oatmeal bath!!

Here's how:
You'll need a blender, food processor or coffee grinder and 1 cup of oatmeal, 1 cup of milk (or more according to your liking), 2 tablespoon of honey & olive oil each. You can use instant oatmeal (unflavored), quick oats or slow cooking oats- all work equally as well. For babies, you'll only need about 1/3 cup per bath.

Blend or process the oats on the highest setting until you have a very fine, consistent powder. To test the colloid property of the oats, stir 1 tablespoon oats into a glass of warm water. If the oats readily absorb the water and give it a milky look and a silky feel, you've blended long enough.

Giving the bath:
Sprinkle the oats into a tub of running water and stir the water with your hand several times to ensure even distribution. Add milk, honey & olive oil.

Feel along the bottom of the tub for clumps and break up any you find.

Get into the tub carefully as the oats & oils will make the tub even more slippery than usual. Allow yourself to soak in the tub for 15-20 minutes and pat dry with a soft towel rather than rubbing. Slather moisturiser.
You can use this bath once or twice a day.

If it's your face, do an oatmeal facial. Mix oatmeal with milk to a paste. Add a teaspoon (or more to get the right consistency) of honey. Apply it to your face & wait for about 20-30 minutes. Wash off with warm water. Follow with a splash of cold water. Pat dry! Apply moisturiser.


You must consult a Dermatologist.
Use petroleum jelly, apply on the part,mean while pl.

I used to have this problem. I live in Nevada where it can be freezing or 110*. In wintertime my hands crack so bad and my knuckles turn dark, almost black.

The best way to get rid of it is to use some CALGON SPA OCEAN OASIS WARM SALT SCRUB It's about $6 for 8oz. Get your skin slightly damp, then rub this in. It hurts, but the outcome will be worth it. Rinse it off completely. Pat dry. When your hands are dry, use some SAUVE NATURAL OATMEAL 24hour lasting lotion.

Do the salt treatment once a week, and apply lotion every morning when you get up.

i have no idea
It could be a vitamin deficiency, hypothyroidism, or simple dry skin. Try using a body butter like can be found at The Body Shop. You have to use it daily and avoid doing things that dry out your skin. Try using a humidifier if you live in a dry climate or if you are using dry heat in your home.

The other alternative is see a dermatologist. There are several products that you can get by prescription that will help.
