We use 3 fingers on each hand, excluding the index and thumb. So far they look okay-ish. They do have some callouses (sp?). Sometimes I put a tiny bit of Neutrogena hand cream on one hand, and use the other for testing, and the following night I switch.
You can also try alternate test sites. Some people use the toes at night. Others test at the area at the base of the thumb, some even on the forearms.
