I’d say Claudette works for the pharmers. I’m 44 and have had this for….15 years, maybe a few more. You mentioned the tonsillitis maybe being a trigger, hadn’t thought of that. Seems like i got this after a tetanus shot though, hard to say. I don’t know where it came from but I want it gone. It’s been pretty mild for the most part, started out as a dime sized spot on right elbow for a few years, then a little bigger. Got some small patches on knees, then other elbow, then ears, a little bit on scrotum, then right hand knuckles and fingers, a little on left hand. The patches on knees went away (i was prescribed halobetasol propianate) not sure if that is spelled right. Anyway, patches on knees went away when i doctored them and the shit has went into overdrive on my hands and right palm and starting a little bit on left palm. I feel sorry for you folks that have this godforsaken stuff all over your bodies. I’m afraid that is where it’s going to end up being if I don’t get this under control. I started the bragg vinegar tonight and i have the tumeric stuff ordered and i am also typing this with surgical gloves on with copious amounts of petroleum jelly under them.
With their hands, the temperature and weather can play havoc too. Cold weather, dry, sore, even cracked skin, causing tightness will bring discomfort so be aware of this and try to encourage them to wear gloves and keep their hands well moisturised to help prevent cracking and soreness. In the summer, moisturising their hands keeps them in good condition avoiding the drying out and cracking of skin. Never a good idea to scratch patches, as this leads to possible infection, bleeding and pain, so if you can, discourage them from scratching.
