I actually take complex B vitamins to help with my dry skin. I get those cracks in all my fingers and toes, and it's very painful. I talked it over with my doctor, and I goop them up with 100% pure lanolin 2-3x daily and take a B vitamin supplement everyday. There have been a couple of times when I ran out and went without them for a week or so and my hands cracked all over, it was horrible so now I buy bulk and don't run out. Last winter my dad had a crack in his thumb that wouldn't heal, It was almost and inch long and he had it for months, so finally I went out and got him a jug of B complex, and guess what? 2 weeks later he was healed up, coincidence? I don't think so. Can't say about the weight loss though, I've been taking them for years and until recently I was morbidly obese.
