| | splitting skin
does anyone have this problem? if so, what does YOUR doc say about it?
I have skin that "rips" and it does so like a zipper. What I mean is that I sometimes can "feel" it unzip just like that...and when I look at what has happened, the skin has split. It has happened everyplace on my body, but lately has confined to my hands, and even moreso, my fingers. they rip...it appears like a wide paper cut, although it is still a slim rip. it can be anywhere from a 'slit" to a cut up to a half inch in length, although it has been as "long" as about an inch on the inside of my crotch area.
what gives? I have been dx'd with scleroderma and then "un dx'd" with it. I have diabetes, lilchen sclerosis, neruopathy, demyelization, athrtitis (several kinds), fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, hypo thyroid, to name a few....so I dont' know where to begin looking for an answer.
