I would think you would have to have a nice size cut for the virus to enter. I highly doubt it can enter cracked hands due to dryness because the skin on the hands is thick and tough.

Well a cut and having dry skin would be the same thing, OPEN wounds are the path way to having inffection to enter your skin or "blood system". you gotta look that the factors 1)ladies hand aren't that tough as guys 2) ladies use lotion which mean the cut made from dry skin would be expose and take longer to heal.

A wound and dry skin are not the same thing!! There are several layers of skin so well it's not likely you will acquire the virus due to dry skin. Now if you have a cut on your hands or a nice size break then just make sure you do not touch your sore when you have an outbreak.

Well what i meant by that is if you had dry skin to the point that it cracked leaving an open wound. that's what i meant sorry my friend.
