It all started over tewnty years ago. I developed a rash on my right palm, tiny blisters with a clear liquid that I would bust. Later the skin would get dry and scaly. It was a small rash and I did not worry, the Doctor said it was a contact dremititis, he sent me a cream and that was that. It never healed, only it did get a bit better. I saw him again and this time he said it coult be caused by stress, I work , raised three kids so OK I had stress. Then I noticed that it started in my left palm. I again saw a specialist and was again told it was a contact dermititis and sent a cream. No it again did not go away. Later it started in my right foot, again conctact dermititis, only this time I unfortunately had to have surgery in the same leg so they did an biopsy on the rash. The results , not fungal and not bacterial.
Still I suffer from these rashes that will not go away...
