Gluten-Free Hand Care

Are your hands just a mess right now with the cold weather & dryness?  UGH!  My hands are just a mess.  I feel like I am constantly washing them.  I am sure that is adding to the nightmare that is in the form of cracks in the skin along my thumbs.  OUCH!  I try to remember to lotion up, but I literally wash my hands so much I am not sure that it helps.  Not only do we have gluten in the house, with my making sandwiches out of Whole Wheat bread for my daughter, but I baby-sit a little girl and after changing her diaper or wiping her nose, etc, I am washing my hands.  I am currently using Curel Targeted Therapy Hand & Cuticle Cream.  It works well, when I remember to use it or don’t wash it right off.  For more targeted treatment on the cracks, I have been using Aquaphor or Bacitracin and then covering with a band aid overnight. 

Anyone else have this issue?  What do you use for hand care?  All the products I use on my hands are gluten-free.  I know that gluten can’t be absorbed through the skin and isn’t an issue unless you have Dermatitis Herpetiformis, but if I eat with my hands, that could be a problem.
