I have had cracked dry finger tips that I have had to put moisturizer on for the last 3 years. They have never healed. My Dr has sent scrapings to the lab but no cause found. I have used Cortisone to no avail. 2 weeks ago I showed them to my Dr again and he said maybe it's something you're eating. He then asked "Do you eat nuts?". I said yes, by the handful. They are my go to snack everyday. I now stopped eating nuts but still eat peanuts. They are legumes not nuts. My fingers are healing and no longer splitting and bleeding. Every day they getting softer and stronger. My Dr said it may take a month or more to be totally gone.
