Ends of fingers, thumb peeling. Painful. No help with creams. Suggestions?

I have been under some stess recently and for 2 months the skin on the ends of my fingers and thumbs has been going hard and peeling. More than one layer of skin has peeled. My thumb has cracked and become raw and is painful. I am constantly applying creams and lotions to try to moisturise and soften the skin but have not found any that have improved the condition. I am 66 and female. Any suggestions? Jenny Gray
