My hands&palms are so dry they are cracked and bleeding from constant hand washing and using hand sanitizer. Are there any specific lotions to use?

In brief: Ceramides

Look for a cream with ceramides.
There are many. Use vaseline or Aquaphor in the cracks. This is most effective if rubbed in after a long soak in water. Rub in frequently.
