Cracked Fingertips

The tips of my fingers get small cracks in the skin. Hand creams do not solve the hurtful problem. I will appreciate any healing methods you can advise.

My dad used to get those cracks on his fingertips a lot. He went to a doctor and was diagnosed with eczema. I found out not too long ago that I also have this. The dermatologist prescribed a cortisone cream for it that clears it up very well.

Get some pure lanolin, it works well to heal hands. I get those cracks as well and since I've started using lanolin, they actually healed. I put extra on mist before bed.

I get terrible cracks in my fingertips in the winter. Especially as it gets colder, more moisture is drawn from the air. So I have found it an absolute necessity to put a pan of water on the stove or use a humidifier in the winter to add the moisture back into the atmosphere. The 5 qt. pan of water is not boiling or even simmering. I set it on the back of the stove over a low flame, and it slowly evaporates. I fill it in the morning and in the evening and keep it going day and night, when it's 20 degrees or below. It has made a world of difference. I still get a crack once in a while. Then I go back to putting a dab of ointment on the crack and a band-aid, over night, and it seems to heal fairly quickly.

I use udder cream (same as bag balm). I buy it at WalMart. The brand is Udderly Smooth. I was getting long splits that were very deep. I would have multiples on each finger. I tried gluing them but the super glue only stayed for a few minutes. Since I have been using the udder cream, I have only had a few minor splits. I take several times a day and put some in my hand and then rub around the end of each finger. Then I do both hands.
