My husband has had a rash on his wrists for a few months now that he has been treating with Cortizone-10 to no avail. Within the last week, he complained of a very itchy elbow which within a day produced a quarter-sized, scaly, red and white lump. The last couple of days, he has been scratching his palms practically non-stop. Today, he complained there are patches on his legs. I've visited some other websites, but they list more than 50 possibilities so I came here to find out what this is and suggestions for home treatment.
Note - One of the pharmacists with whom he works suggested shingles. How could that have happened?
