I live in Houston and have been to numerous dermatologists and doctors with something that sounds very similar to your issue. The thickening of skin is occurring on my left thumb, both middle, index, and pinky fingers. The only fingers unaffected are my ring fingers. I have tried steroid creams that have not solved the problem. Have you found a cream or an md that has been able to treat this condition? I appreciate your feedback as I am very frustrated trying to find a solution!
Just a quick note to say hi! Also wanted to know if you ever discovered what the heck the dry, callused skin on thumb and index finger were? When I was younger, I used to develop small blisters which would pass and just leave dry flaky skin. Now there is this callus thing! Ironically, I did find that the 3 step Peach Scrub from Mary Kay's Private Spa collection used nightly really helps. Don't worry, I DO NOT sell Mary Kay... just happened to try it and it works.
