Hi, I have just joined and am hoping someone can help me. Every now and then I get a flare up on my hands. Starts with a tingle sensation then within a couple of hours I get a rash which starts off pink but quickly turns very dark red and purple within hours. Intense itching and localised swelling. After a few days the skin dies and peels off and then it's gone for another few months. The odd thing is the lesions appear of the side of my ring finger on my left hand and between the index and middle finger off both hands. No where else as a rule although this time it seems more severe and has also affected a couple more areas which it hasn't done before. GP is stumped. Ordered another load of blood tests. I've now taken pictures if need to see a specialist it will have gone by the time I get in. Anyone else experienced this?
