My hands are extremely dry. The skin on my knuckles is even starting to split and bleed. I have been using all the normal lotions I have, but none of them are helping. My mom always gives me silicone glove from Avon for Christmas, so I have a crapload of that, but I haven't checked its gluten-free status so I am not using it.

Do any of you have a recommendation for a good hand lotion for extremely dry skin that is gluten-free? I wash my hands probably 30 times a day what with preparing food, using the washroom, changing diapers, etc. But they have never gotten this bad before.

Any help will be apreciated.

I use Burt's Bees hand salve. Its gluten free, smells good, and it works really well. I apply heavily every night after putting the kids to bed. Its greasy, so I always make sure I don't have to do anything in the next ten minutes or so after application. Its so worth it though. I don't have to use any lotion the rest of the day and I always have really dry hands and they used to crack and bleed really badly. Hope that helps.

I use either the burt's bees hand salve, or shikai dry skin therapy.

Plain old Vaseline (or petroleum jelly) works very well and cheap as heck.

My hands crack open and bleed too! I use olive oil. I keep a open pour bottle by the sink. Several times a day I add a few drops of olive oil after washing my hands (seems to work best with wet skin). That fixes the open bleeding problems pretty quickly!

i have to second the 100% pure cocoa butter. i recently found it at my HFS to rub on my expanding pregnant belly but the most benefit i've seen so far is how soft my hands are. it comes in a round tub and is hard so i warm it in the microwave to get a oil (butter) and it's very smooth and not greasy at all!

I just discovered a wonderful new line of stuff....a small company in S. Carolina. FABULOUS customer service. The Gator Hydrator in Vanilla Jasmine is just about the yummiest stuff ever and works really well on my CRACKED hands and feet.

check this out:

I also love the silky oil spray and creme caressant. good stuff!

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream. We use it for EVERYTHING--chapped lips, eczema, cracked hands etc... A little goes a LONG way and it lasts thru a few hand washings (I need that working in a hospital and taking care of little ones!)

Aquaphore is another good one.

I use O'Keeffe's Working Hands, which is scentless and non-greasy as well as being gluten-free. It's great stuff - doesn't wash off as easily as most lotions - and is intended specifically for hands that crack and split, according to the package. Mine don't, but it's the best hand cream I've ever found, and members of my family who aren't celiacs agree. You can sometimes find it in hardware stores (I'm told most Ace hardware stores seem to have it), though if you live as far from civilization as I do, you'll have to buy it online.

    • I am sorry that your son is ill.  It is time to have his antibodies checked to see if they are coming down as recommended by celiac experts as part of follow-up care.  You might think he is gluten free, but maybe he is getting hidden sources of gluten.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ If his result are fine and celiac disease is not the cause, your GI can look into other issues (e.g. IBD: Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis).  Consider a food and symptom diary.  Is he off dairy?  Lactose Intolerance is common in celiacs.  It can be temporary.  Of course he can react to any food.  I hope you and your doctor can figure it out.     
    • Consider Graves Disease.  My mother struggled with it.  She did not have all the classic symptoms of Graves, but she did end up with permanent eye damage (she sees double).  My cousin had it even more severe.  Besides eye muscle pain, she had the classic eye budge (Grave’s affects the muscles in the eye and/or other muscles in the body producing weakness). I have have Rosacea, but it presented  as Ocular Rosacea and not on my face.  My Hashi’s first presented with thyroid enlargement.  I was never cold, lost hair or gained a pound.  My celiac disease presented as anemia with none of the classic GI issues.  What I am saying is that Autoimmune Issues can have various symptoms and are often systemic.   There was a point where I was having thyroid swings.  When hyper my eye muscles hurt.  Scared me because my mom was pretty much forced to give up working.  So...... Do not mess with your eyes.  Get checked by an ophthalmologist.  
    • My son was diagnosed celiac in May 2017 and been gluten free since April. He still has mucus in his bowel movements even though he eats gluten free only. Has anyone else got these symptoms.  Going to the Dr tomorrow as getting  no answers off his paediatrician. I am wondering if he got intolerance to something else as well. 
    • Hi there. I've had ongoing issues with my eyes for a few months now, including pain in my eye orbit, swelling over and under my eyes, dry, wrinkled and flaking under eye skin that comes and goes. I thought that I was allergic to mascara that I had just purchased; that seemed to be when my symptoms began. I'm presently I'm thinking that I have blepharitis. I'm also wondering about Sjorgens syndrome. I have an appointment with my ophthalmologist in a few weeks (my GP told me to put vaseline around my eyes-thanks for nothing!). I'm practicing good eyelid hygiene and have noticed an improvement in just a day! Maybe you can check into those? Good luck to you!
    • I am feeling this right now! It just started and has been going for 15 minutes or so. I just ate some jalapenos, so it could be spicy food related!
