Hand eczema
colinstead posted:
I have severe hand eczema/psoriasis on thumb and 2 fingers on both hands and the palm of my left hand (I am right handed). Every 2-3 weeks I get lots of lesions which are very, very painful. After a few days they go and I'm left with very red, dry and sore hands. Patch tests show I am allergic to sodium metabisulphte. This started about 4 months after I started taking nortriptyline for headaches. Could they be linked to my hand problem?
