Painful fissures on fingers/palms/feet

A few months ago, I noticed a very small, circular, hardening patch on my hand.  I noticed it because it itched.  It got progressively larger in diameter.  As time progressed, the skin in the circle began peeling and cracking.  The crack eventually got deep enough to be painful.  Over time, I have noticed more and more of these spots, which all grow larger and then go through the same process until I have to apply neosporin or something similar just to make it through the day.
I also have what I've determined to be foot fungus (I've struggled with this issue on and off for years) that I am currently treating with an herbal remedy (seems to be working after two 1/2 weeks).  I'm not sure if the two are related.
At any rate, hese lesions are very painful and quite frankly I'm frustrated with this ongoing issue.
Please help!
