Hi, I've written here once before, but I had a question for you guys!
I have mild/severe psoriasis on the palms of my hands and my fingertips (which went away for 2 weeks after my doc. gave me a cortisone shot only to come back, full force--what a TEASE!). It keeps me up at night itching, makes it hurt to use my hands (I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, too, so this just adds to it) and makes me really self-conscious.
The weird thing is, I can tell when I'm going to get it in certain spots because I get a little patch of holes under my skin. Sounds weird, I know. But they are tiny, pin-sized holes that appear to be filled with liquid (pus, gross, I know) and can grow to be very large. Then the holes turn into little breaks in my skin which then turn into psoriasis.
Has ANYONE experienced this? It freaks me out and I haven't been able to find anything online about it. :(
(The weird holes aside, I use topical meds, AND Enbrel for my RA, and neither seem to help, really! Just hard to keep meds on your hands/fingers)
