The intensity of skin cracks may vary from mild to severe. In mild cases, there are superficial cracks on the skin.

Petroleum is an excellent treatment for cracked skin. It is mainly used when the cracks in the skin are deep and are accompanied by bleeding. The skin is dry, hard, thick and cracked deeply. The cracks can be present anywhere on the body but are mostly found on the hands and fingertips. The skin on the hands is rough, cracked, full of fissures and is sensitive and painful to touch.
