Im trying to find out what it is. Ive ben told many times its eczema, but ive recently ben looking into Netherton Syndrome, And have noticed I have symptoms of nail psorisis. What does it look like?? I cannot figure out how to post pictures so I am putting a link to a craiglist add I made looking for help. If anyone needs more pictures I can email them.


I get massive scaling,dryskin, rashing, itching at an unimaginable scale. Cracking,loss of cuticals. I get this stuff all over my body. mainly on my hands. Ive tried everything cream and ointment wise and nothig works. Lotion does not even moistureize my skin. I was going to go in for allergie tests but being unemployed it would cost around $700 to do. Is there a way to test to see what I have? Biopsy maybe? Ive ben told to go on a strict diet of raw food, and cut out a ton of other stuff by friends. But I dont think I can cut out my entire life to suit this stuff. I want it gone, not some extremely strict hard method for taming it.
