I don't even know how to describe this. For maybe the past month or so, I've noticed suddenly having extremely flaky dry skin on my feet (particularly the right side of my body, if that's even possible). It's honestly been on the low end of my priority list due to a plethora of other more debilitating health issues. Then several days ago, I noticed a "patch" of rough, red and irrirtated looking skin on each hand just slightly above the carpus. Doesn't hurt, doesn't itch, just obviously doesn't seem healthy. Fed up, with both my feet and now this odd hand thing, I went and got a pedicure and a paraffin dip for my hands. Everything looked great for about 2-3 hours! Now suddenly those "patches" on my hands are dry and rough again. I'm baffled, I'm fed up with weird mysterious health issues that no one can diagnose/link together, and exasperated with all the special "health tips" being prescribed by the various specialists that — if I could somehow manage to maintain them all — would get my body to the normal person level. Making an appointment with a new dermatologist is on my to-do list, for many reasons, but anyone have any thoughts on what this could be, and/or suggestions for potential treatment?
I was diagnosed with Keratosis pilaris atrophy as a baby, and still have the Keratosis pilaris-looking bumps on my upper arms. A million other health issues at the moment. A1C is normal though. Receiving treatment for B12 and D deficiencies. Super dry mouth and eyes, currently lips as well, but ANA panel and SS-A and SS-B antibodies negative. The day before I noticed these "patches", the left side of my lip randomly swelled up for about an hour and a half — no idea what that was about either. Anything else, feel free to ask.
