In brief: Dry hands

If your hands are so dry that they are cracked, peeling or even bleed at times, you may have a severe form of dry skin called dyshidrotic eczema.
Using a prescription strength hydrocortisone cream at bedtime and then applying a "greasy" moisturizer can help heal the skin. You may even want to wear cotton gloves at night to seal in the moisture better. Daytime, apply lotion as much as possible.
