Thick skin and cracked

I had a patch of skin that was so thick I could not feel pain in it. The skin was also cracking and itchy.

I tried something I don't recommend but only mention it because it worked and I would like to know why.

The problem area was on my left hand the index finger on the side. I took a very sharp knife and cut the skin away up to the edge of the affected skin until I got to the area where the goosebumps are. I put an antibiotic cream on it and it healed completely.

I have not had a recurrenct in over a year while I still have excema outbreaks on other parts of my body.

Why did it work? Is there a disruption in the skin that was eliminated? I think it has to do with a virus in the skin tissue and this cut out the affected tissue.
