Hello, everyone...

I recently added a new album showing pictures of my skin issues.

I know I have Telangiectasia (spider veins) on my face, lips... actually all over, and there really is not anything that can be done for it (other than avoid cameras), but it is the strange skin on my right foot and the thickening on my fingers that I am wondering about.

Do any of you see anything in the photos that seem familiar and might be able to give me a clue as to what it may be?

I often try to search the internet looking for photos of anything close to what I might have going on, but without any specific words to look for I am having little luck.

Thank you,

Hi Penny,

Have you looked at pictures of dermatomyositis, especially of the knuckes? If so are they similar to yours, or not?
