That sounds exactly what I was going through a few weeks ago. It seemed I was always hitting my hands right on the cuts on everything! It was so painful!
Two things helped me.
1. O'keefe's hardworking cream. applied at night. took two days to heal them, but I could tell a difference the next morning. http://www.okeeffescompany.com/
2. stopped knitting with acrylic yarn- was causing this problem in the first place! I was shocked when I discovered this.
