Hello Thanks for posting your query. I can understand your concern. You are experiencing extreme dryness of skin. I would recommend that you apply a good moisturizing lotion like vaseline thrice a day. This will help in reducing the dryness and in turn will reduce the pulling of skin. Also make sure to drink lots of fluids to keep your skin well hydrated. Take care

ON two occasions; a week and a half ago, and today, unexplained bruises showed up on a different finger. Tonight, my vein swelled. Prior to these incidents, I had been getting red pimples on my fingers and hands that were sore when rubbed. They seemed to be caused by lotions, but I stopped using those lotions and started only using Lubriderm. That helped, but I still have a few of them. What is your explanation? Monica
