Hi, My hands are so extremely dry! They crack, bleed, and itch, and sometimes swell from all the small cuts. They are really red all the time (except when they get cold they are super white). The redness stops right at my wrist, in a VERY distict red line. I have no rashes anywhere, or skin problems anywhere else, just my hands. The doctors don't know whats wrong with me. Doctors have persctibed tons of steroid creams, nifedipine, and amlodipine. Ive tried all the creams in the store; cetaphil, aquaphor, etc. Nothing works. Its not a fungus. When I go on vacation, my hands totally clear up...wether its to a warm place or rainy place. I have had this for about 8 years. It's very noticable and painful. What is it?! Please help me! Any suggestions?
