I have sore hands this year more than other years. My scleroderma is hitting me hard and it has been cold and stormy here. My rheumatologist suggested I put a thick layer of lotion on my hands, put on cotton gloves when I go to bed and all the lotion will be absorbed.

 

It is doing the trick; my hands look much better and not as painful. I had a sore that he thought might turn into an ulcer and it is now gone away. I hope this  can help others. I wear the gloves doing my daily routine and I am glad I gave it a try.

 

Blessings to all.

Hi Quiltfairy,

 

Thanks so much for posting such a useful tip for our members and I'm so pleased to hear that it has improved your hand symptoms.

 

When I had my horses, I used to wear gloves to save my hands from a lot of wear and tear in the winter.

 

Best wishes,

My hands are very sensitive.  Just a slight tap can make me yell and even screwing up a piece of paper is painful on the skin of my palms.  That said, no abnormality seems visible.  Anyone else find this?

Doing my hands with the lotion has helped.

yeah, Quiltfairy. I may start doing that a bit more.  What lotion do you find best?

I use a lotion from body works; it was the best but expensive. After I get this tube done I am going to ask if my pharmacy salve works; some have told me I could use coconut oil.The stuff my doctor wanted me to use is too much money and I have used everything.

 

The other thing my doctor said, always use rubber gloves or such when cleaning with chemicals.

 

Good luck.

Thanks Quiltfairy.  That all makes sense.  I will endeavour to use more handcream.
