My husband developed a rash and peeling skin on his hands last week. He spoke to the Pharmacist at our local Chemist shop and was prescribed Oilatum Cream for it. The Pharmacist said a lot of this kind of thing is happening at the moment with the constant use of hand sanitisers some of which are not really skin friendly.

It is improving slowly and he has stopped using the ones provided in shops and only uses his own.

I wear disposable gloves in shops but use sanitizer on those so doesn't actually go on my hands...
Keep wipes in the car but take off gloves and put in the boot and no one else had touched anything in my car but me...
Wash hands as soon as I get home...
Use nice moisturising cream in my hands after washing to stop them getting to dry ...

I forgot to say that I don't wear rings to go shopping, sanitizer was causing irritation under my wedding ring and another nearly came off with the slippery stuff!

Dear all,

Here's link to a list  (a long one) just published this afternoon by Government of Canada of brand names of hand sanitizers that have been recalled because they pose health risks.
