Whichever stuff you use i'd begin with argan oil because it is chock full of vitamin E and once that has absorbed into the skin (only a few minutes) apply something heavier in a thick layer and put a disposable fabric glove on and wear that for 12 hours and repeat twice a day. I've seen a competition cross country skier do that for a month. So things like that could last a while but i hope that cracked skin on the thumb won't last a month to cure. Also does applying sports tape to the tip of the thumb leave you with enough grip to be able to throw? It should help in alleviating some of the pressure in throwing and i'd try that even if it messes up your score at first when you return to throwing.
