I've gone to the doctor before for this, but they just gave me a thick lotion, non-medicated, and told me I just had dry skin. Well my "just dry skin" is ONLY on this finger and splits deep and when it's not split my entire palm side of my middle finger is extremely flakey. Does anyone else have this or know what it is or know what to do to help it? It's only on my middle finger on my right hand and only on the palm side of my finger. I've had it for years and doctors just don't seem to care. But it's annoying when it's flakey and hurt REALLY bad when it's split!View Thread
