    O.k. I'm in florida and it's cold right now. My fingers are spliting and hurting. Right now I'm using corn huskers lotion. Does anybody have any other suggestions? Sorry to sound like a wimp, but they are really hurting.

    I have recently discovered Vaseline petroleum jelly cream deep moisture lotion to combat the increased dryness from washing dishes at work. Supposedly it has 18-hour moisturization, vitamin E, and is fragarance free.
    Dh says it doesn't have a scent. I swear it smells and smells nice!! I have a hyper-sensitive nose sometimes [​IMG] It does soak in pretty quick and has been the only thing to really help me out with the dishpan hands. I use it every night before bed, and occasionally during the day.
