Use...: Use moisturizing cream as many times as you can during this season and with the type of job you have. During the winter the skin can get dry and this can alleviate symptoms. You might also be having contact dermatitis with recurrent hand sanitizer use. You may try hydrocortisone over the counter and avoid exposure to this type of hand sanitizer.
