I am having sensitive skin on my palms and fingers of both hand and foot .The difficulty is that when I am consistent with water for more than a minute the outer layer of skin starts getting teared from the rest and gets extremely dry.Can I know why it happens? Is it because of the water or soap or any other reasons? And is there any solution to prevent this?

I react similarly when washing dishes without gloves, swimming, or showering with hot water because of eczema on my fingers and elbows. I keep it at bay with pure lanolin. Prior to caring what when on and in my body, I used a steroid cream from the doctor. My results with lanolin are actually better than they were with the prescription cream and I don't transfer the steroids to my children through touch!
