Bad burn...Touched something that took off all skin on fingerprint. It's healing, but the skin is weird. All stiff, sometimes cracks and peels. Help?

In brief: Probably normal
Sounds like a normal healing reaction to me.
It would help if we knew how long ago this happened, whether the burn caused pain or numbness, whether it is oozing, or has any honey-colored granules on it, etc.

In brief: Typical
The eschar from a healing burn will often do that.
Keep antibiotic ointment on it.
