Hands update – so far so good!

A week after the final application of Protopic, I can report that my hands are still more or less in one piece. As instructed by the doctor, I’ve been applying hydrocortisone cream daily, but as of yesterday that’s reduced to every other day. My skin is still dry and my fingers are tight when I get up in the morning but no splits or significant redness. Over the last week I’ve noticed patches of tiny bubbles under the surface of the skin that in the past have heralded a flare up of eczema, but so far they seem to have subsided with lots of emollient.   Fingers still crossed…
