I wash my hands a lot, especially when cooking, so the skin on my hands is usually very dry. A small patch of eczema on one knuckle won’t go away, even with a steroid cream, and the skin is often cracked and sore. In addition to the steroid cream, I use hand lotion multiple times per day.
In a casual conversation with our Sigvaris sales rep I mentioned how rough and dry my hands get. He told me about their new cream, and sent me a sample to try. It sat on my desk for several weeks while I finished a tube of Aveeno hand cream for Eczema, which didn’t work that well. The first time I tried the Sigvaris cream I was a little disappointed, because it is greasy. I’ve since found that you really need to rub it into the skin, then wait for 5 minutes or so for the best results.
After two days of using the cream twice a day, there was a noticeable improvement in the condition of my knuckle with the eczema. The skin on my hands was very soft. After five days, my knuckle was almost completely healed.
I am not saying that Sigvaris Skin & Foot Cream is a cure for eczema, but it has made a noticeable difference for me.
