I was looking at my friend's hand today, and he's been really quite ill in the past, but he doesn't have finger prints :| Like seriously, there are none of those circular markings that most people have, just great cracks that go down them. What would cause this? He won't tell me what it's about. He used to have perfectly normal fingers. He seems to drink alot of water so I don't think he's dehydrated.

I don't think so, the skin looks fine, not hard or damaged or anything, it seems like a much more fundamental oddity.

maybe his hands are swollen or something? Or he's a member of the MIB.

Sounds like eczema. Caused be an inability of the skin in your hands (and elsewhere) to retain water. They go dry and crack and therefore the skin is constantly dying. Eventually, I guess this results in the lack of fingerprints you just described. Same thing has happened to a friend of mine.

This sounds almost exactly like what he had, but the skin wasn't dry at all, it seemed very well hydrated, perhaps even more so than normal.

I did. There are things in his past he doesn't wish to talk about, or tell me at all. Or will just lie about. He mumbled something about fish.
