Mine are extremely dry as well. No feeling in fingertips. At first they looked like I've been soaking in the bath too long. Now they are peeling all over. Skin specialist gave me salicylic acid and sulphur cream. It seems to work so far.

My friend is a nurse and she gets mega dry hands too... for her it's all the handwashing and sanitising on very long shifts! She doesn't have psoriasis. But guess its a tough profession for that...

I've found that cocoa butter by Palmers, offered in its many forms, helps. It's really all that does.
