Hi there Peeps!
Wondered if anyone else gets tightening skin on the hands and wrists?
I have dry skin to begin with, eczema diagnosis aged 5 and had it ever since to varying degrees - treated with hydro-cortisone creams and prednisolone from time to time.
It has been not too bad over the last 2/3 years. BUT I have noticed recently that the skin on my hands and wrist and lower arms too a bit, has become dry to the point my hands are starting to claw and it is difficult to stretch them out. The skin around the knuckles and joints is particularly bad.
And ideas on relief for this?
Bear in mind I am allergic to lanolin so that rules out some stuff.
No pain, no irritation as such, just dry hardening skin limiting movement.
I'm guessing you seasoned professionals will offer more help than GP does.
