I was wondering if anyone else suffers from thin skin like me. The skin on my legs are incredibly thin and as such I bruise like a peach (and it probably doesn't help that I am a clutz as well!). Because I try to keep out of the sun and always put on SPF 50 my legs are pale and veiny!
Usually I don't worry because I can cover up with trousers or leggings but now it's summer and boiling hot in this heatwave, I want to be able to walk around in shorts and not feel self conscious!
I spoke with a doctor (because my normal consultant was busy the day I went to see him) and he said that it was probably not due to my steriod intake ( I am on 5mg a day) because that is a relatively stable dosage and that it was probably the effects from Lupus.
Can anyone else relate? Or have any tips or advice?
