        To elaborate on the title: when the skin on your hands gets dry, how do you treat it? What hand lotions or creams are the best for this problem? The hand lotion I'm currently using is helping me, but I'm sure I could find something even better (e.g. that helps my skin heal faster, is less greasy, etc.)

        To make things worse, my hands still sweat sometimes, and the combination of antiperspirants, sweat and tiny skin cracks makes my hands painfully irritated… I love iontophoresis, it's really effective, but I would to learn the best way around these annoying side effects. Thanks!

        In general, any 1% hydrocortisone hand cream should be good! 🙂 I suggest you try several creams and find the one that works best for you.

        First get the cream, then pause with iontophoresis treatments (and maybe even antiperspirants) until your skin heals. Use the cream regularly and resume the treatments. I believe the regular use of a cream or hand lotion should protect your hands from damage in the future. Good luck!

        Also, try adjusting the settings of your iontophoresis machine. Ideally, you should feel no need to use antiperspirants on your hands.

        Mostly my skin becomes dry and rough in winter, so I prefer to use body lotion and also use oil for my skin.
