Our expert says:
Yes - it is called Keratolysis and the wrongest thing you can do is to pull off the skin - it happens because the skin does not mature properly - can be caused by irritants or stress or in some cases it is hereditary. Try a cortisone cream and a barrier cream like Fissan paste on your fingers - (Fissan is oily so you will have to rub it in and wait a while to absorb) if this happens. Avoid any abrasive chemicals including dishwashing soap, washing powder etc by using plastic gloves.
