It is a type of eczema caused by a combination of dry skin and irritants. The best way to treat this is to keep the skin away from chemicals/soaps and to use liberal moisturizer. If it cracks, put antiseptic ointment on and keep it closed until the crack heals. Wear plastic gloves when doing dishes or working in the garden.
