Health Tip: Easing Hand Eczema

(HealthDay News) -- Working with harsh chemicals or doing heavy-duty work with your hands can worsen hand eczema, leaving hands dry and cracked.

The National Eczema Association offers these preventive suggestions:

  • If your hands get wet, use cotton glove liners and neoprene or vinyl gloves. Wash gloves frequently.
  • If your hands remain dry, wear fabric or leather work gloves.
  • Avoid industrial hand cleansers that may contain harsh, irritating ingredients.
  • Bring to work a bottle of gentle hand cleanser, as well as moisturizer and any skin medication.
  • Make sure all work surfaces, tools, protective gear and clothing are clean.
  • Promptly care for any minor wounds on your hands.
