I would suggest putting on vitamin E on the nail and rub it in. I would do this often. I hope this helps.

I made a lotion from bees wax and it really helps my cuticles! I got the recipe on line and my friend has bees so I got the wax from her. It also waterproofs your hands! There is also a company who makes this but it is kinda pricey. I made mine for hardly nothing, It has baby oil, water, bees wax and borax in it. It was fun to make too!
Hope this helps!

Barry has not had that problem. Sorry to hear that Roger is having problems with his hands. Hope things are going well other wise.

Yes, I get the swelling, splitting and bleeding. They are so tiny but SO painful!! keeping them moisturized helps.
