I don't have any answers for you but I'm sure there will be someone who knows.
I also find my finger tips very sensitive, a bit like when you have blisters but they are kind of under the skin. My toes, especially the big ones look like dried prunes all the time and are often deep purple in colour when I have a Raynaud's attack.

I don't have the pitting , but I have the "paper cuts"
Do you by any chance have Anti Jo 1 antibodies? I have those small cuts that crack & bleed. Then they get better for awhile, and come back quickly. If it's due to the antibody, it's known as Mechanics Hands. My dermotologist gave me some steroid cream, but it hasn't made a difference.

She recommends that I use a good hand cream to keep my digits supple. She warns me not to use very hot water to wash pots and always to use rubber gloves when immersing my hands in hot water!
My hands do tend to dry out especially at the fingertips. They crack and become very sore and because I have such bad Raynauds, the healing process takes much longer!
I sympathise with you my friend!
Love and best wishes
