Two knuckles on my right hand have been red and flaky and itchy for several weeks now.
I do not want eczema, and frankly I do not want any other diagnosis consistent with these symptoms.
I wish to explain that I have already got numerous diagnoses of diseases and syndromes. Each time I acquire one I need to read at least one and probably more books about it, worry somewhat, and either change my lifestyle or take medications or both. This has become burdensome as my bookshelf is full of condescending books written by registered nurses, I now take four prescription drugs, and I have given up numerous pleasures.
Please remove the itchy red flaky situation from the knuckles. If I require any more diagnoses of syndromes or diseases I will contact your office directly.
Thank you in advance.
