When I was in 3rd grade I was waiting for the bus at school, when I knoticed my hands were itchy and red...When I made it home I washed them. the itchyness din't stop untill about 3 days later. At this time my feet also began to become red and scaley. My parents took me to a dermatologist, who then scraped my feet and told me he found no fungal infection.He put me on every cream and medicine he could think of.When all failed he put his hands in the air and said he din't know. After about a month my skin on my feet got very thick,started to peel, crack and bleed.The skin on my hands got very old looking ,the tips of my fingures and around the nails peeled as if I had them in water always, makeing them too sensitive to do anything.I am now 20 and they havent changed since this.I have always had hormonal imbalance and small very light rashes on my arms and legs,acne since i was 6. Bad skin always.I have read about kawasaki disease and a few others and the symptoms just dont match up perfectly to anything. I also got very a bad rash around my eyes when I was around 10,was so miserable. and kept soar throats...I had to have tubes in my ears as a newborn and was on alot of antibiotics all my life...I also had a bug bite when I was a baby that turned into impetigo. ;-( they had to put me in cloth diapers...When I was 18 I decided to just try to be treated for fungal infections, but it still dint help, and I took the meds and creams for a long time. could the impetigo be causing the dry feet problem? do i still have it? Has anyone else experianced this? maybe malnutrition? or chemicals the school used to clean with?
