Chapped Hands

Last modified on January 11th, 2019



The best treatment for chapped hands is to rub them well every night with glycerine or glycerine jelly. More pleasant, but not always so effective, is “Lanoline Cold Cream.” Another very excellent preparation is Calendula cerate; rub in well before retiring at night. A very pleasant and effective skin application is Epp’s Emollient Skin Lotion.

Night and morning, if the chaps are very intractable.
