Hey Guys, time for another 'manly' thread ! wink.gif

Does anybody else get really sore hands and fingers in the cold weather ? Mine get quite bad and the skin even cracks and splits which is quite painful. What do you guys do about it if you get this too ?

I have "winterhands" ( directly translated from Dutch )that means that if it gets cold outside, my veighns get tighter and my hands
swallow, this can also make more fluid in the knuckles of the fingers, I think somewhere is a picture on gmc of last year where I thought this was guitar related, Now this year I found out is was Winterhands but because I play guitar, the effects could be more dramatic.

But hey, We are men right biggrin.gif
Ill upload some pics if I got a cam to scare you guys biggrin.gif

Here is the topic of a year ago when the docter told me it was guitar and volleybal related and told me to calm down : https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=42350

I told this trick years ago when there was a "GMC ruined my hands" competition:

Use lotion for your hands. Ben, you have a girlfriend...chances are she is carrying around this stuff with her and uses it like once an hour.

Yes, that's all.

My hands don't hurt, but they sure do slow down!
There was a similar thread on another forum where they discussed wearing gloves when playing in cold weather. Sounds freakish I know. I thought about developing a 1/2 glove that only covers the backs of your fingers and hands, leaving the palm side of your hand open / exposed.

Would take some interesting material and something to adhere it with, and potentially painful to take off if you have a lot of hair on the back side of your hands, but hey! who knows!?!

Unfortunately, I have the same problem, Ben... I use a thing called Marigold/ Chanterelle creme - the little yellow flowers. They will help you!

Jojoba oil, it's the closest oil to our natural oil our skin has, I use it as a moisturiser all the time.

My hands get all dry and sore when I've been handling cement for a couple of days. All I do is soak my hands in a basin of warm water. If I use moisturisers than my hands get too soft and are no good for rough, man-ish work type stuff!!

I never go out without gloves. It is quite helpful for me, never get cold hands or fingers.

Years ago, when I was working for the helicopter company, we did a lot of helicopter logging. Logging is seasonal in the North West United States, so the company found winter logging opportunities in the South logging in the swamps in places like South Carolina.
Our loggers were not used to working in the brackish water all day and complained about skin rashes. One of the loggers found out that his wife’s lotion (an inexpensive and somewhat fragrant lotion) worked good on the rashes. The next problem was leaches. Another logger found that his wife’s panty hose would keep the leaches from being able to attach to him.
So after that, every day a bus-load of loggers would stop at the local convenience store for lotion and panty hose before going to work in the woods. smile.gif

laugh.gif What a great story , I can only imagine what the clerks at the store must have been thinking, or what kind of puzzled looks they may have had on their faces.
