Emollients

I'm sure your husband has tried just about everything over the counter including moisterizers and emollients like eucerin cream or aquaphor. There might be something else going on other than just dry skin. We often see fungal infections on the hands, especially if someone wears gloves a lot (like athletes foot for the hands). I'd suggest getting a check by a doc to see if this isn't fungus.

What causes non-dry skin is peeling on fingers and palms after a sunburn?

Sun damage

Skin
Does not have to be dry to peel. The sun actually blisters up the skin and you slough the outer layer, dry or not.

Hand foot and mouth?

Extremity-palm
It's very uncommon for adults, common for kids. In the last few weeks I've seen several adults with hand, foot, and mouth disease. it's an uncomfortable but not dangerous viral illness, improves within a few days, but if your symptoms, worsen, change or fail to improve you should be seen.

How to.prevent dry peeling lips?

Over the Counter

Head-mouth-lips
Over the counter remedies are usually sufficient. Part of it is personal preference, but if any of these seem not to improve things in a week perhaps trying a petroleum based product such as Vasoline for a week might be helpful.

Dry peeling skin

Dry_skin
There are a number of causes of dry peeling skin. You can use a cream like lachydrin twice daily to improve the symptoms. I think 5% is OTC while 12% is prescription. Fungal infection is one of the causes of scaling so if it is not resolved see your doctor

Do keloids peel when skin is dry or wet?

Not necessarilly

Keloids
Some keloid skin will not have the normal oil glands within it that lubricate our skin so it is possible that the keloid can appear drier than "normal" skin.

What's a good way to cure dry peeling skin?

Happy Skin

Skin
Skin is the major protection of our delicate internal tissues from a harsh environment, it is susceptible to injury itself. Sun, shaving and many chemicals are very irritating as well as constant exposure to moisture reduces protective skin oils and sets the skin up for injury. The trick is to apply good protective skin cream frequently and minimize ongoing damage. Clean it using gentle means.

Is dry sort of peeling skin an access for hep c?

No evidence.

Skin
If you are asking whether it can be transmitted through dry skin, there is no evidence that it can. Hepatitis C is spread when blood from a person infected with the virus enters the body of someone not infected. Usually that's due to sharing drug needles, but sometimes it's from sharing personal care items that may have come in contact with another person’s blood, such as razors or toothbrushes.

Dry peeling skin on differin is this a good sign?

Yes

Skin
This is exactly what one should expect from a topical retinoid (Differin is a retinoid). In the early studies on this class of medicine the researchers felt that if a patient is not getting red and peeling then the strength of the retinoid is not high enough. This side effect can often resolve or can be alleviated with a simple noncomedogenic moisturizer. Good question.
