For the last few months the palms of my hands and my fingertips have been getting these deep lines in them and my fingertips are also wrinkled - they feel like I've soaked my hands in water for hours. It's been getting a bit worse as time goes by. Anyone have any idea what could be the problems?
When I first noticed the wrinkles in my fingertips I thought it would go away with lotion. I think I was exposed to some kind of harsh cleaner at work, but I'm not sure. I've never had any prior problems. No health allergies. No bumps, scales or lesions, and they don't itch. My fingetips are very sensitive though. I went to the doctor for them and they gave me a steroid ointment called Clobetasol Propionate 0.05% it doesn't seem to be doing the job. I plan to revisit the doctor this week, my problem has been ongoing now for about a month. It's quite annoying!
Hi. I have had the exact same issue going on with my index and forefinger on my left hand only. The lines are not just up and down, they run diagonol as well. This is accompanied by clear bumps under the skin and has been re-occuring every week for more than two years now. The dermatologist I saw said it was eczema and put me on Vanos but it isn't helping (over a month of using Vanos). One additional thing to note is that the symptoms on the index finger are also accompanied by dark brown lines in several places under the fingernail. I haven't been exposed to harsh chemicals that I am aware of. The only thing is several years ago (15-20) I had a scaley, itchy patch of skin on the back of the left hand which went away and would only occur once or twice a year. I haven't experienced that issue in a long time. It almost seems like it migrated to the front of the hand. It is not really itchy now but the skin peels away while the wrinking and lines appear.
Any ideas would be welcome. Thank you so much. NOVAJIM
