- CASE FILE
I have been battling a severe skin issue that my doctor believes it is PRP (pityriasis rubra pilaris). Fingers are constantly painful.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I am seeking help because my fingers are so painful that I cannot do the basics. Along with a lot of inflammation/swelling my fingertips/fingers crack and bleed, they peel and the skin becomes keratinized (same symptoms on my feet). My fingers are so painful that it is hard to pick anything up, to drive, get dressed, etc. Cracks an inch long or more form on my heels making it difficult to walk. My skin laughs at steroids and creams, nothing seems to help. Quality of life is minimal and mental health is taking a dive.
