Extremely Dry skin


#1

Just wondering, if anyone else on here that doesn’t use a daily moisturizer, suffers from extremely dry skin, to the point it just splits open.???


#2

Just my right hand but it does it in three different spots.


#3

@Coltfire @Ds401 Have you been checked for diabetes? That tends to happen a lot to diabetics.


#4

I have but checked out clean although it does run in the family. I use to screen print when I was fresh out of high school o think it’s from the chemicals we.used.


#5

@Ds401 I have COPD and blame it on the chemicals we used. Printing industry from 1991 to 2003 before becoming fully disabled and unable to work.


#6

I have some silk screen equipment! I tried to sell it last week but the guy wanted to low ball me.


#7

I was type 2 diabetic, but was cleared 3 years ago, and have regular screening, as it runs through my family, but type1


#8

Glad you got through that battle, my wife has type 2 but shes been on Applecider Vinegar and her A1C is dropping


#9

My mom has type 2, sister as well


#10

Braggs Apple Cider vinegar believe it or not it is working for her. 1 tablespoon in the morning before breakfast and 1 in the evening before bed.


#11

How do you ingest cannabis? Smoke it? What is the impact to copd?


#12

I smoke if I need a quick fix I also have chronic pain due to nerve damage. I have a vaporizer I use which is better then smoking but I plan to make butter so I can cook with it as COPD and smoking don’t mix and my lungs have slightly worsened.


#13

I also have Copd ,and am about to cook some butter,and intend on cooking it for the full 60 hours

@Coltfire

Have you been tested for eczema?

It runs in my family. I have it, and my aunt has it really bad, as described in the OP.

If it is Eczema, the treatments might be different than what you are using. Just a thought.


#15

what medications are you on?


#16

Lots,and I know the meds are a factor,ATM my hands and arms are that split, I look like I’m a cutter,there so deep the split’s
