Heal Dry Skin And Cracked Fingers

How do I heal dry skin and cracked fingers?  This is a question often asked.

What is really important is not the asking of the question, but finding the most effective answer and the best treatment plan.

Dry, sore skin on the hands can lead to cracked fingertips.  At work, or in and around the home, this condition can be painful and debilitating.  Suddenly, even simple daily chores become dreaded tasks. 

Thankfully, for most people, the solution to the problem is usually straightforward.

Dry, sore and cracked skin is not a consequence of a single cause.  We will look at some of the more common causes.

Symptoms of dry, cracked and flaky skin are often an indication of an underlying medical condition. Eczema, dermatitis, various fungal infections and psoriasis can all result in dry, sore and cracked skin.

Sometimes, a person's immune system overreacts to allergens.  In turn, this can upset the normal functioning of the epidermis, which may lead to a drying of the skin and its associated problems.  The allergens responsible for the overreaction vary from person to person.

Genetic inheritance is also suspected as being an underlying cause of dry skin.  In these cases, it is generally accepted that there is often a trigger to the skin flare-up; a recurring event or circumstance that sparks off each incidence.

In all the above cases, a precise medical diagnosis is sometimes difficult.  To further complicate matters, the specific medical terms are commonly interchanged in everyday parlance.

Alternatively, dry and chapped skin may simply be indicative of exposure to one or more of the many potential irritants that are all pervasive in the normal everyday environment.

Working in and around the home will expose your skin to many possible contaminants. Cooking, cleaning, gardening and many DIY tasks all lead to skin contact with potential irritants.

You are likely to find that any dry skin condition will be, somewhat illogically, exacerbated if you regularly immerse your skin in water. This is because repeated wetting and drying breaks down the skin's outer, protective, top lipid layer.

Working outside is another contributory factor. Drying winds, especially the cold harsh winds of winter, will aggravate any pre-existing dermatitis.

Perfumes and preservatives that are added to many cleansing products are another possible source of allergens.  As a general rule, if you have sensitive skin, you should try to avoid any product that uses superfluous cosmetic ingredients.

Whatever the cause of your skin problems, the National Eczema Association recommends taking prompt action to rectify the situation.

If you show early signs of dermatitis or eczema and ignore it then the condition is only likely to deteriorate. This is especially true if it affects your hands as the skin on your palms and fingers receives constant abrasion throughout a typical day.  It is best to think of any symptoms displayed as your body’s way of alerting you to the fact that some action is needed.

The epidermis will very likely thicken and harden in response to the scratching that is unavoidable with itchy, flaky skin. Inflammation and, ultimately, cracked fingers is the consequence.

Using a top quality moisturising and skin protection cream will aid your body's natural protective qualities.  Keeping your skin supple and healthy cannot only prevent dermatitis occurring in the first place, but it is also an essential aspect of its on-going treatment.

When choosing your moisturiser and barrier cream products remember to follow a few simple guidelines:

Derma Shield proudly conforms to all these requirements and contains the additional benefit of possessing a natural antipuritic which will help relieve existing irritation.

In conjunction with moisturising, your daily skin care routine should include:

"I have very bad dermatitis around my ankles which weeps and it is difficult to treat because of bad circulation in my legs. Since using Derma Shield over the last 2 weeks, my skin is now beginning to improve and is not weeping at all. I am ordering some more as I do not want to run out of it." J Y (Devon)

“I was excited about trying Derma Shield as I have heard good reports about it.  After using it I have found that my eczema has decreased and it is not so itchy - and that's after only a few days!” K H (Swansea)

"I have been using your product for some time via an agency and am now buying it direct from yourselves. I just wanted to let you know that it has been an enormous help to both my children. It has been wonderful in preventing nappy rash but the biggest benefit has been to my 15 month old son who suffers quite badly from Eczema." J M (Warwickshire)
