Hello all, I am new here and hope someone can advise me. My daughter in law has suffered for about 10 years with a skin condition that comes and goes. She can suddenly get flare ups when her skin on a part of her body feels like it is on fire. Within minutes the skin is bright red and begins to break down leaving red raw open areas. She has never been given a proper diagnosis. She has to take herself to hospital where the wounds are dressed and that is about it. I have witnessed these sudden flare ups and they are shocking to see. She finally has a GP who is taking her seriously and is listening to her concerns, but is yet to come up with an answer. My daughter in law feels (and I agree) that it might be an autoimmune condition and it usually happens when she is under severe stress. I wonder if anyone here has had such awful skin problems?
