Petroleum Jelly

February 18, 2013 — 7:45pm

I have tried several doctor-prescribed creams since my diagnosis. However, I have found that keeping my hands moist with small dabs of petroleum jelly works the best. I apply the petroleum jelly after I wash my hands while they are slightly damp. This seems to keep my condition somewhat under control.
