I wondered if anyone has experience of exfoliative keratolysis, also known as focal palmar peeling?
When I was extremely hypo the skin on my feet and hands got very, very dry, thick and yellow like leather, and then began peeling off in sheets. Underneath skin would be pink and sore until it dried out after a few weeks. Then the process would repeat.
Now that I am on T4+T3 I have found all my thyroid symptoms have improved (no longer tired, dizzy, cold, panicked, palpitations etc). I am almost back to normal now. But the skin on my fingers never seems to have recovered. The palm-side skin on my finger tips constantly dries out, forms tiny white air-filled blisters, and then slowly peels off. The process takes about two weeks, then just repeats. There is no response to steroid creams and it is not itchy.
Having done a lot of reading now, I am starting to suspect this may actually be a different skin condition - exfoliative keratolysis - rather than directly caused by thyroid hormone imbalance. I have read it can be triggered by stress (definitely had a lot of that this year) and autoimmune diseases (I have Hashimoto's).
If anyone else has had this I'd be grateful to know if your symptoms seemed similar?
