The day to day moisturising of my hands has seen me use just a variety of creams and ointments. I have tried Aqueous cream, which had no real benefit, creams containing Aloe Vera, SLS free, Lanolin free, Paraben free, the list seems endless.
My initial symptoms were just a small itchy area on the palm of my right hand. Within days the itchy area had developed into a flaky patch of skin. Not thinking too much of it I just found some moisturising cream and applied that expecting this dry patch to go away. After a week or two the flaky patches had appeared on both my hands in several places.
