How do heal them? I guess neosporin? Prevention is really the best way - keep your cuticles moist, keep using hand cream but rub it in real good on your cuticles. I always put lotion on my hands before I go to sleep at night and then at least a couple times during the day. If you keep doing this eventually your cuticles will be pretty and won't bleed. And don't pick at them!

I highly recommend shea butter right after you get out of the shower and before you go to bed. Avon has a nice shea butter line. I would use regular hand lotion during the day or if it's really only your cuticles, I would get some balm (like Burt's Bees) and put that just on your cuticles.

That's what my Mom recommended for my dry hands, use neosporin almost like you would use lotion.

you can use olive oil for an alternate and just rub it into your cuticles every 2 hours the first few days, then they will stop bleeding and become lovely again

I'm all for the natural stuff. So much better for your skin and they moisturize so well. I actually make my own soaps, balms and lotions and I can honestly say the natural lotions/butters are the best. Someone mentioned Burt's Bees Products, they are natural and there are many other good brands. You can certainly buy them or you can buy just the butters, shea being absolutely excellent. You can buy that sort of thing at any health food store or order it online. I would definitely recommend products than contain natural butters such as shea or mango. They really do work well. I used to get those cracks on the end of my fingers every winter (we live up in the northland) and I started using my homemade stuff just this past year. I have not had one single crack nor any cuticle problems. The natural butters absorb in your skin really well, whereas products with petroleum products don't. I even use it on my face. You don't need much. Whatever you use, use it regularly every time you wash your hands and before bedtime and make sure to rub into your cuticle area too.

There is a product that sprays on and seals small wounds, like hangnails and paper cuts. I can't remember what the name of it is, but it works pretty well. You can find it with the bandages in drugstores. It is made by Nexcare. This might be helpful in addition to the good care advice that you have already gotten. I have to wash my hands many times in a day, and lotion is my best friend.

I use St. Ives Collagen & Elastin Lotion. In addition, when my hands start cracking, I dip my fingers into a large jar of cold cream, put on a pair of cotton "beauty gloves" and go to bed. These gloves are available at any drug/discount/beauty supply store. I've also found them at the 99-cent store, which is where I buy the big pots of cold cream.

Fine advice here, I will say!

I hope they are a lot better really soon!

I always mix neosporin with Vasoline Intensive Care lotion. It also works wonders on chapped lips.

I use the liquid bandage stuff that BandAid makes until the wound heals then use this Avon cutical therapy cream that seems to work pretty well with prevention.

Great advice already! I, too, recommend and use both Burt's Bees and Olive oil.

Since I make concrete stepping stones during the warm months here in Oklahoma I always have hands that need attention.
I use Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion. Found it at Wal-Mart. It's non-greasy and penetrates your skin fast. First time I used it there was a noticeable difference. Now I use it all the time. My hands have cracked, split, bled, and this is what I would suggest. Connie
