My brother has been told that a skin condition that he has had for 5+ years is Sweets Syndrome. he is being seen by a dermatoligist for skin lesions that appear on his arms and hands. They are deep and painful lesions. The Dr. gives him shots of ? and is treating him with Predisone. He suffers from side effects of predisone (thin skin, depression, puffiness, and now hearing loss and cataracts). he just cannot get a break! A simple bump on the hand or arm will turn into an ugly open lesion...sometimes a bump is not even necessary - they just appear. PLEASE, if anyone has a suggestion...Mayo Clinic? Dermatology? infectious disease? ..please reply! otherwise, this could go on forever! Thank you.
