Washing hands a lot and handling very dry dusty items all increase the likely hood of fingers cracking. This is quite painful. Use rubber or latex gloves when working, I put hand lotion on first then the gloves. Vitamin E, or bag balm, or any thick greasy hand lotion applied liberally before bed helps. If it is really bad I apply the hand treatment and wear cotton gloves or socks on my hand to bed. one of the best ointments I have found is Spring Wind Skin Ointment. You can buy it on line. It is amazing and works great on cuts and bruises also.
