If the skin around your fingernails is also splitting and cracked and you also have cracked lips, sore mouth and tongue and grainy, sandy feeling eyes, then yes it is a vitamin deficiency. Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) to be precise. Sounds diff though, you say all red and sore??? Does this mean swollen and puffy?? And all the same?? This sounds like a nail fungus, really common believe it or not. If its swollen and puffy go to the chemist and ask the pharmacists advice or maybe jus go straight to the Doctor and he can diagnose.
If its the first symptoms I described go get yourself a really good multivitamin tablet that includes all the B vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12). Don't buy the B vitamins separately as they work best synergistically (as a group).
Expect to pay around $30.00AUD , don't buy synthetic vitamins (the cheap nasty ones) as they are notoriously hard to digest.
Also increase your intake of foods rich in B2 - liver, kidneys, cheese, leafy green vegies, fish, eggs, yoghurt and beans.

OUCH! Have you tried putting some perxiode on them to see if they have some type of infection started? Maybe at night try putting the lotion/vasoline on your hands and wearing gloves. Good luck
if its a fungus use vicks rub it cures fungus on toe nails it should work on finger nails .
