Question: Dry/cracking fingertips (saltwater)
|blakeromano - Mon Jun 28, 2004 5:32 pm||
My hands and feet are extremely dry and crack open. I work on a parasailing boat and am in the saltwater daily. I know that it is the saltwater that is doing it but surely can't change professions. When the summer ends and I change jobs it goes away, but within a week of being in the saltwater it pops up again. Does anyone have any advice? I'd surely appreciate it.
