Treatment for Sore Hands
One of the problems associated with extensive bouts of cold
working is that the hands can frequently become sore and painful.
Prolonged exposure to water (a necessity when cold working glass)
tends to dry out the hands. It's not unusual for the dryness
to reach the point where the skin cracks and the hands (especially
the fingertips) are painful to touch.
The treatments for
sore hands include the following
1. Various lotions and creams, ranging from the commonly
available to the more exotic
2. Treatments specifically designed to heal cracked and
split skin, such as liquid bandages
3. Preventative treatments, such as gloves, waxes, and silicone
4. Approaches that seek to minimize the amount of cold
working required in the first place
Each of these four categories will be discussed
