Welcome to Healing Well
I notice my fingers go pruny really quickly. I've just had a bath, and as the water touched my fingers they started. My fingers end up quite sore and delicate after a bath.
This topic has been on another forum I visit, about a year ago I think. We generally accepted between us, that our hands go pruny, and we can't stop it from happening. If it starts to effect your hands, makes them dry or you get peeling dermatitus, or it bring you out in any form of rash, ask your doctor for a cream to help-like E45 or Diprobase or steroid based hydrocortisone if it's becoming unbearable. Otherwise, it's just one of those things with CF, that noone can explain 100%, and as long as it's not causing problems you're ok.
Hope this has answered your question.
Hope you're ok, and not suffering too much with the cold weather (if you have it where you live of course, some places are nice and hot all year round it seems.)

Sometimes, I feel that I should go and play with the thunder - then I get scared and run away.
