HI, my client has deep cracks in his finger tips of the secind & third fingers (both hands)- pointing finger and middle one. those cracks sit on dry end of finger and go deep - to the point where you can see flesh and it is very painful. I am working on strengthening LU Yin and KD yin.
I have photos to share...

Ophir, many details are lacking here, even the age of your patient and his occupation. In my experience, these type of phenomena are mostly the result of bad habits or occupation hazards. In other words, these are rather a local problem rather than a systemic one. In any event, local treatment, such as needling the extra points that sit in between the knuckles of the affected fingers plus a local administration of appropriate ointment usually do the job. Still, you need to eliminate the cause and this is done by patient interrogation.
