skin softening then hardening again

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have a question about skin softening. I started taking cytoxin about 8 months ago and within 6 weeks my skin started to soften and my hands started to uncurl. I have noticed that in the last month my skin has started to get hard again. I have asked the rhumatologist and sclero specialist about this and they both said that the skin can soften then harden then start to soften again. Has anyone else had this happen? Thanks Kathy

After 4 years on of soft skin (initial hard to the wrist), the skin on my hands started to harden again. However, I had been off immunosuppressants for 3 months so I attributed it that. Once I started taking cellcept, the skin softened again after a couple of months.
