I am constantly splittling and re-splitting my fingertips. I'm very impatient and want them to heal as fast as possible. I've tried a variety of topical cures that I've heard from random sources including vitamin e, garlic, propolis, black tea bags, green tea bags, bag balm, burt's bees hand salve and, most recently and with the greatest success (and also the greatest cost), joshua tree climbing salve. I was curious if anybody had anything that they found works well.

3M Nexcare Skin Crack Care. It comes in a small glass container and has a brush applicator. Keep putting it on daily tell it stops hurting. Ranch hand cream bar helps prevent the splits as does minimizing long hot showers(bummer eh?).

Whaaaat?

I used almost all the same creams you listed above and nothing worked for me either. Skeptical, I tried O'Keeffe's Working Hands, and within a week my hands were almost completely healed. Use at night before bed as directed.

Apply an aloe vera gel poultice: put a very generous ammount onto a gauze pad and tape it on with sports tape. Tape it on in such a way that the gel doesn't get squeezed out.

The martial arts Jow looks interesting.

Racked and loaded... name that splitter behind me? Hint, its on Supercrack Buttress

Superglue and then use an emory board to file down the excess glue. Works amazing on heals and splits at the edge of my finger nails.

I use NuSkin, same concept as the NexCare stuff. It's the best when your cuticles are shredded from finger cracks, glues all the loose stuff down so you don't keep getting it caught on pockets, chalk bag, etc.

I also use Burts Bees hand salve nightly, and after really shredding my skin I use Kiehls Recovery Salve which is kind of expensive but a colleague got me hooked on it and it really is an amazing (miracle even) product, especially when doing multiple days at places like JTree.

My wife, who owns a nail salon suggests buying a pariffin bath available at beauty supply or any department store. Follow the instructions and the splits will go away. They typically cost about thirty bucks and the pariffin will last quite awhile. Blocks of pariffin are a lot cheaper than any product you will buy. Feels great as well.

Stoked...

Neosporine and tape it up for a day or two... then let it breath, file down the excess skin around the split... if you don't it will just keep drying and re-splitting, then neosporine and tape again for a day or two...

I've always found that those that don't file down the excess skin around the slip continually have reoccuring splits... think if it as making a new surface...

I've used Superglue and Toughskin with good results. I find that I'm more susceptible to cracking if I'm not staying well hydrated. Drinking more water throughout the day (as opposed to remembering to drink half a liter once or twice) seems to help, but I've got thin / brittle skin anyway.
