Regarding using alcohol wipes for blood tests, after reading your note in the DTeam answer, I stopped using them for my daughter. We always had and, as you hinted, her finger tips are quite rough. Is there anything else we can do to help?

Using a moisturizer cream like Formulated for Fingers by Can-Am Care should help soften them up again. Any moisturizer should do the same thing.
