Hi all, just wondering if any of you are experiencing really dry hands during pregnancy? My hands seems to be dry, red and sometimes painful. I normally do have sensitive dry skin but this is worse....

My hands were dry during pregnancy, so many changes are going on with your body it could be that, plus how often do you wash your hands? I washed them like a maniac when I was preggers and I know that made em dry. Change your lotions and soaps to have moisturizers to help out.xox

The Aveeno baby eczema cream is an awesome lotion, it doesn't feel greasy after you use it, which is why I usually don't like/use lotion.

Oh, you know what, my MIL let me use some Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, that's what finally got it to go away. Everything else I used on my hand (it was just on one hand) burned, soosososooo bad, and she told me to try the 8 hour cream because it's doesn't have an alcohols in it, it's so sensitive burn victims use it. She works at Macy's, and gets all kind of free stuff, that's probably where she got it
