 The best home remedy for split fingers is an ointment containing citronella oil. This is because citronella oil is a potential fungicidal. It has to be used with a base as some times in concentrated form it may irritate the skin of the finger tips. Split fingers causes cracks and bleeding in the finger tips. Therefore it is necessary to apply a moisturizer and petroleum jelly is best suited. It helps to keep the hand and finger greasy and at the same time helps in the process of healing. Use of udder cream is another home remedy for split finger. It is usually used as a preventive measure for udder chapping in cows.
