    I wear gloves every time I touch a box, yet still get these painful crack/cuts on my fingertips. Any advice?

    Moisturizer... Or use the blue rubber coated gloves, your hands will sweat inside, but they'll be soft.

    Agreed to the above.

    Think of your grass at home, when its moist, and well ventilated, the grass is dry, smooth, and soft, and the ground is resistant to cracking.
    Well, hands are like that as well.
    Just shows that the gloves you are wearing are the wrong type, as they are drawing out the moisture in your fingers.

    Lick your fingers each time you pick up a box or envelope.

    May want to make sure though that the box doesnt contain crabs ;) before licking... but then, each to their own.

    You don't sound like the adventurous type. You're missing out on all kinds of sensations.

    Always use lotion after you wash your hands or shower. Makes all the difference in the world.
