Dermatitis On My Hands. Is This Just Because I Have A Low Immune Sysytem?

Dermatitis On My Hands. Is This Just Because I Have A Low Immune Sysytem?

I have psoriasis and arthritus, hyper mobilty and panta fasciitus. Im on severa topical creams/ ointments, meloxicam and sulfasalazine. To add insult to injury i now have what the doctor thinks is dermatitus on my hands which is very severe. Has anyone else had this? Just wondering if there is any link? thanks in advance.

I believe that any link would have to do with the fact that your skin is compromised and more susceptible to other conditions. Dermatitis is an allergic reaction to something, and the source is often not discovered. Many people try to avoid a group of foods that commonly cause allergies, and then slowly add them back one by one to determine if any of them are the culprit. Often, avoiding these foods means eating healthier and you'll notice an improvement anyway.

@A MyPsoriasisTeam Member: creams contain emulsifiers. They damage the lipid barrier and perpetuate the problem they claim to fix. Always read the ingredients: if it has water and oil, there's an emulsifier (and preservatives too). OIL is the therapeutic ingredient. Cover your body in oil before a shower and the water will force it's way into your skin as oil floats on water. Emulsifiers negate this wonderful relationship between oil and water. You cannot heal if you are applying synthetic chemicals to your skin. So there! :)

I have Palmer planter psoriasis, maybe you have the same. The itching can be quite unbearable and my hands split open on the lines in the palms. Cream up well all the time and make sure you keep your hands clean and dry before creaming.
