I have that too, and for me, it's psoriasis. Have you ever been to the derm or do you have it anywhere else? Check your nails..are they pitted? If so, the cause is more than likely psoriasis. There are many meds that can be used to treat it. Mine is severe, so I'm on the serious drugs (was until ins. ran out). There are some that are not so serious as far as side effects go. Elocon (used sparingly) is great, there is another one, but the name is very very long and I can't remember it. OH! Try hydrocortisone 10. It worked for me in the beginning.
