I know this question gets asked a lot but I don't have time to search through all the old posts so I'll ask it again. What is the best way to treat rips from bars? Is it best to keep them covered? When, at night or during the day? My dd is 7, and is in school all day so I don't think keeping them covered all day would work with how many times they wash their hands. I've been putting lotion on them for her at night but just wonder what else there is to try. The one broke open last night and she said it really hurt. Anyone try neosporin with pain reliever on rips? I just don't know what the best thing is to try. Her hands have held up pretty well until the last week or so. Thanks!
