Does Anyone Have Problems With Peeling Fingers? My Skin Will Thicken, Crack And Peel. Only My Fingers.

Oh yes!
I don’t know what it is about chronic disease that makes peoples skin on there hands crack so bad in the winter?
I carry those little tubes a Vaseline that you can buy at most stores at the checkout.
Every time I wash my hands, I squirt a bead of Vaseline on my thumb and rub the Vaseline over the top of every finger around the fingernail and then rub my hands like I’m washing them with the remaining Vaseline.
My hands have never cracked since over the last 20 years.

If you are taking multiple meds, that can cause dry mouth. There are mouth washes for that, check with your pharmacist. They do help.
