Good morning all,

I was just wondering if anyone here is taking Hydroxychloriquine? If so, do you find it makes your "finger blisters" worse? Since starting it I have found that I have had them more frequently, I now get them on my palms as well as my fingers & they don't seem to heal, they just get bigger & bigger. Does anyone have any tips for this? I have tried the creams, ointments & moisturisers but to not avail.................

Thank you for your reply. I have noticed the same thing recently, especially in my thumbs but like you I'm sure this is just the Raynards becoming more of a pest! x

Hello. I can't offer advice but Twitchy Toes has posted about her fingers and such problems. Take a look at her posts or message her. X
