Stick with your favorite pick and get some Picker's Grip. It works great, isn't gooey or sticky and lasts forever, even at the rate of 2 or 3 different applications a day. I get those painful splits especially on my thumbs and have tried many remedies to no avail. Best thing I've found is to apply Burt's Bees lip balm and then use a piece of a bandaid or first aid tape to bind the crack together, especially overnight. Using a small piece of tape rather than an entire bandaid wrapped around your finger or thumb keeps it from getting in the way of holding your pick. I think it's important to keep it bound together until it's at least partially healed. Hope that helps.
