Hi,

Thanks for your query.

The condition you have is called traumatic splits.This is seen when there
is increased fragility in the skin which most often happens in deficiency of
Vitamins.

Need not worry it's a treatable condition.

Do apply Neosporin ointment twice daily after washing thoroughly.
Also do take Multivitamin capsule one per day for a minimum of a month
to get rid of the condition completely.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Regards.
