how to treat exterior pressure treated wood handrail

Installed new exterior pressure 1x6 treated wood handrail. After one week appears to start to crack. I want to seal it somehow now, before cracks further. Everyone says you should wait around 3 months to dry out. I think the cracks will get worse. What should I do?
