    Recently, after a shower or a bath, the palms of my hands are sore and chapped. I started using hand cream but it hasn't done anything. Just wondered if anyone could suggest anything?

    What hand cream are you using? Try E45, I think its great

    EDIT: have you changed anything you use in the bath recently? bubble bath, shower gel or anything? maybe you are having a reaction to it?

    Hand Therapy from Superdrug, its great stuff, just doesn't do anything for my palms.
    Haven't changed anything, though I did wonder whether the water might have something to do with it, I moved to uni in September and it wasn't long after that it started.

    Aqueous cream is brilliant for dry skin. I use it with my eczema, cheap as chips over the counter at Boots.

    Was going to suggest that. My hands have been really dry recently and it's the only thing that's worked.

    When you're going to bed, cover your hands in cream and put on some cotton gloves.

    I can second this. The store assistant recommended it to me and it is wonderful! You only need a tiny bit so it lasts ages.

    I used to use the hemp stuff. There's some lying around but I can't find it anywhere.
    I think it is the water thats causing it, I've been home for the weekend and had no problems. Came back here, had a shower and they're sore again.

    Thanks for the help people. I shall try one of two suggestions and see how it goes =)
