Can't Post

I moved to a dry mountain area, about two months ago, and about two weeks ago my fingertips and hands started to get really flakey and dry. When I first arrived, my tips wouldn't get raw very fast, and would heal overnight, but now they don't seem to be healing and they get raw fast. My tips lost their fingerprints, and are pinky (not raw pink, but like scar pink), I've been putting on Metolious hand rapair balm, and have been taking 2 days inbetween climbing. I've only been climbing outdoors, and mostly bouldering everyday or every other day. I want my old skin back :(.
