[IP] Re: Dry skin remedy

Hi Tina,

I also have extremely dry skin, especially my hands.  They crack and 
bleed in the dry, cold weather if I don't use the only product that 
works for me...Neutrogena Hand Creme (not lotion).  My dermatologist 
agreed that lotions are not as effective as cremes for dry skin.  I 
only need to apply it at night.  It wouldn't stay on during the 
daytime anyway, since I'm a compulsive hand washer!  I've tried just 
about everything, including the balm bag lotions, but Neutrogena Hand 
Creme is the only thing that works for me.  I might try Kerri's 
concoction of 1/2 hand creme and 1/2 hydrocortisone cream.  That 
sounds like a good combination.

Kerri, do you know if it's safe to use hydrocortisone every day 
indefinitely or long term?
