    Causes for persistent skin dryness, cracks & bleeding?

    For several years, the skin on my hands periodically becomes degradated: the back of the palm gets very dry, the side of the fingers becomes irritated/red, and I get skin cracks on either side of the nails, on all fingers. I used to think this was due to some combination of cold weather and stress, but I'm beginning to doubt that. This conditions backs off when I apply skin moisturiser, but it keeps coming back regularly. Is this cause for concern? In the worst case scenario, something like this could indicate Bowen's disease, HPV or actinic keratosis - although casual questioning of a dermatologist friend some time ago suggested this to be unlikely.

    I wasn't able to attach my photos here, so I've uploaded them on the free image hosting website ibb dot co, in case anyone has time to have a look and suggest an answer. Sadly the URL below gets cropped. Thanks in advance!

    Sounds like a form of eczema...is there a reason you cannot see a specialist?

    I have - been prescribed Diprogenta and Nerisona, none of which kept the eczema away for more than a few days, just like plain skin moisturizer does.
