I have pansy hands. Not proud of it.
How bad? Two week trips to Cape Hatteras are interesting balancing acts between wearing irritating gloves, versus suffering the debilitating appearance of blisters and torn-off blisters. Then I go nuts with hockey tape. By the time we're driving home, it's like a thermonuclear explosion of pain every time my hands make contact with anything, including any microscopic airborne particulate-matter.
Frustrating to say the least... sometimes I'll get a handful of nasty ones after just 2-3hrs!
Not working in my favour, I am a desk worker, paper pushing, all-day-at-the-computer type worker. So, I'm never going get those leathery manual-labour dream hands that can repel napalm. I need a pro-active solution.
Have you ever suffered from Pansy Hands Syndrome imparted by windsurfing? If you haven't, then you're lucky, or maybe you get to sail too much and are therefore well-conditioned which is unfair, and also lucky.
Have you found something that helps aside from gloves? If so, what do you do that helps or eliminates?
