I put Vaseline in the fridge or freezer and then put some on

Mine too Bren, very hot and inflamed, which results in more severe cracking and peeling. The discomfort is pretty unbearable, but I forge on. I have been crafting all afternoon and it's wreaking havoc on my hands (cutting pine cones in half with tree lopers=hands are trashed) but...I am making some pretty Christmas gifts. I did cover my hands with Coconut Oil and put them inside some gloves for a bit.

I only have it on the top of my hand and those don’t hurt but my arms and legs are covered like 70% so I’m miserable but am hopeful on this diet and moringa hopefully it starts clearing fast ... plus this foot pain that they think it’s myositis I’m thinking if I can get the plaque down the pain will go away fingers crossed ...
