I have had recurring cracked thumb tips on the sides of the fingernail and have tried many types of moisturizing creams, vaseline, bandaids, etc. The cracks would heal and then kept coming back.

After learning from your site that painful, cracked finger tips can be caused by a bacterial infection, I mixed 1/2 tablespoon Boric Acid and 1/2 cup boiling water and allowed the mixture to cool. Every time I walked by the mixture, I dipped my fingertips in the boric acid solution, immediately the pain ceased and within two days the cracks were entirely healed over.

Thanks Earthclinic for all of your wonderful suggestions, and I hope this one will help someone!
