Dry, cracking, and sometimes bleeding patch of skin on lower

Dry, cracking, and sometimes bleeding patch of skin on lower half of inside of thumb for six weeks. Have tried A&D ointment, plain petroleum jelly, polysporin, skin crack cream, or new skin liquid bandage at different times, both bandaged and unbandaged, without success. I use rubber gloves to wash dishes, but have to wash hands frequently. Saw a wound doctor who suggested A&D and to leave it uncovered and dry when possible but no change in 10 days. Skin is very tight and recracks easily. Any suggestions? Thank you for your time and consideration.

I have had an area around my low back and butt crack area that is a shade of brown, grey almost, for the better part of a decade. the skin feels thicker and has seemingly less sensation when compared to other parts of my body. Sometimes it itches, but not often. It does not extend into my crack or anal is limited to the upper part of the crack and low back. it is about 4 inches in diameter and sometimes has bumps that resemble acne . I m 6 6 and 330 lbs. Im 32 years old. not diabetic, hba 1 c at it s highest was 5.7, but typically stays around 5.0...not sure if that s relevant
