Have you tried using something like they use to put on a cows udders I can't remember the name but it's supposed to be really good for people with dry cracked hands. I would use it and then wear gloves if you don't have a pair of glove wear socks. Over nite and maybe next morning you can see a difference .

I use to use Gold Bond hand lotion, buy recently changed to Curel Healthy Healing lotion during the day and OKeefe's Healthy Hands(& feet) at night. I've had dry cracking and splitting fingers for years. I don't know if it has anything to do with the sjogrens I have just been diagnosed with.

I've had tremors in my right hand since February and I am still waiting for a diagnosed cause. Two doctors think I may have MS but so far all tests are negative. After researching sjogrens it's a possible cause, and I'm still not convinced it's not from my neck discs collapsing.

Do you have disc issues in your neck that could be the cause? Besides dry skin, do you have dry mouth, eyes & nose; possible sjogrens? Cold weather is awful on my splitting skin!

I found an interesting article about it: b4tea.blogspot.com/203/03/skin-splitting-on-fingers-causes.html?m=1

FlappysLady yes I know exactly which one you are talking about. Udderly smooth and yes, works like a charm. I actually use aveeno baby eczema only because I have eczema and that works for me. I also have tremors(essential) And they have no idea what causes them. Sorry, couldn't be of more help tonight.
