Hello I'm new here I have DM. I got it 10 years ago.I was working in a nursing home and passing medication and I would put the styacope around my nice and then a rash came. I thought it was from the stethoscope. Or the alcohol wipes. So I stop using them and didn't put the stethoscope around my neck and it was still there. Went to see the dermatologist and she said it was cancer or Dermamatmystitus. I still work full time but it's very hard sometimes.and I been on the prednisone for 10 years. Now everything is going wrong.
