I know exactly how you feel, I have had this condition for many years, I type and work with paper all day, my Dr. seems to feel it is the paper. I will give you the 2 Rx's I use, Taclonex ointment, this is very thick and it is hard to use during the day, what I do is apply a generous portion to the affected area then put on a pair of clean thin white gloves, you can find them at a beauty sply store for hard therapy treatments. The other script is HylatopicPlus, this is an emollient foam and can be applied to your fingers and hands any time. The oitment is the treatment that supresses the pain! and it really does work but you need to keep up the treatment plans, even when it feels better, you must use the foam. One other thing I should tell you, the HylatopocPlus is very expensive, see if your Derm can get you samples of each first.
Just over the past month I've been hit with attacks of itching, it feels like something is biting me but there isn't and pest doing the biting. It comes to no particualr place on my body, most common places are the top and side of my hands, back of my legs, top on my foot, under my breast. I will scratch so hard that bumps or blisters will form and some times I can tear the skin. I'm not sure what type of Dr. to see, my dermatologist or my MD? I already have eczema on my fingers so back that they crack and bleed and I lose my skin, my derm has gotten that under control with 2 types of topical treatments, cream and an ointment. Can I take an antihistimine? I'm already taking Singular for my athsma.View Thread
