Gritty feeling on finger tips

User Profile
I have been experiencing an oily gritty sensation on my finger tips.
This accompanied by numbness in all my fingers.
The more I rub my finger tips against mythumbs, the worse the sensation becomes. I spend much of my waking hours obsessing about removing this waxy gritty sensation.
It's driving me crazy.
