My skin has been dry for ages and I was going to bed with cream and cotton gloves on - not a good look!! Last week the skin was cracked and bleeding on my hands again but this time became so stretched over the joints that I could not move my fingers. Am on a 10 day steroid cream treatment and have a huge tub of hydrating cream for the rest of my body. Dr said none of the scaly patches are psoriasis which I had feared (my dad had that).
I also have loss of pigmentation across my forehead and have had that for years too. It is not such a contrast in colour as vitiligo is but it is very apparent - my hairdresser thought I had forgotten to put my foundation on there under my fringe! I have lupus symptoms but not tested positive for that. Could this be down to the aps?
