skin peeling from eating meds
jimmytherooster posted:
Hi, my grandfather in china recently went to the hospital and prescribed a pill for his skin. I'm not sure what it was but it made his skin peel and turn purpleish with itchiness and some pain. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what could be done from this. I have some pictures on flickr but cant figure out how to link the pictures. THey are on flickr under the username diamondnails. Thanks to anyone who has any suggestions.
