Thank you, I will have to try this next time Pixie gets a rip. We used lotion but it just wasn't working fast enough.I use a used teabag (one thats been steeped in boiling/hot water).
To stop the whole hand going brown wrap it in glad wrap and cut a hole where the rip is. put the teabag on the rip and hold it on with more glad wrap wrapped around the hand. put a sock on your hand and leave it on overnight.
