SEVERE open cuts from dry skin on hands

An_207508 posted:
My mom is a mail carrier and during the winter, she gets large, open cuts on both sides of every finger. Maybe it starts out as a paper cut? but can't heal because of the daily exposure to paper & 8-10 hours outside in the winter weather. The cuts are usually about 1/4-1/2 inch long and open 1/16-1/8 inch. She goes to bed w/ her hands gouped in vaseline & covered in rubber gloves. Seems she's tried everything. I am hoping to get some advise for her. Plz help!
