There is slight redness but looks normal. The one bugging me is on my hand. It feels like it is raw and burning. Any ideas how to help it. I have tried lotions and cortasone but it does not feel any better. It has been bughing me for a good four months now. I am super frusterated!
Of course, see a dermatologist to rule out any other cause. But I have hot spots about as large as a quarter on legs and arms, unexplained rashes and muscle spasms that are all related to fibro. I use an aloe gel with lidocaine (sunburn gel) for the hot spots. It helps to numb the area for awhile. The hot spots seem to come and go with no regularity. I hope this helps a little.
Thank you everyone for your thoughts and ideas. With fibro i have regular rashes and senesitive skin. I also have foriculitis. I have pretty much stopped shaving. 😬
I will keep you guys posted.
Shortly after I was diagnosed with Fibro ...I developed a skin problem with red bumps that turn into blisters...Went to a Dermatologist and was diagnosed with Foriculitis..this is infected hair follicles caused by drp in immune system. I have to shower 2 times a day with Sulfa cleanse and after apply coconut oil all over my body and top it off with zeasorb powder...I am tired upon tired 😥 but I am lucky to have very little pain...only in my left hip at night in bed
@A MyFibroTeam Member there are also what are called hidden gluten. What all was in the mashed potatoes, I do believe that the Bob Evan;s mashed potatoes have preservatives in them. And if they are packed in a plant that processes other things cross contamination with a gluten containing food can and will occur. Which is why I am extremely careful when cooking meals, that I cook the gluten free first then prepare the rest of the items for everyone else. I had that reaction at a restaurant because one of the new cooks wasn't paying attention and put my gluten free english muffin in the same toaster as the english muffin that was being toasted for my husband.
Well I bragged too soon. Night before last I broke out in itching and had my little blisters all over again. I used to think this meant gluten slipped into my diet, but how is that possible with NO grains... at all! Wait. I couldn't resist temptation that day and licked the Bob Evans mashed potatoes spoon after I stirred them. We buy those for hubby since I can't eat potatoes anymore. But would there be gluten in mashed potatoes?
