I feel like a moulting lizard. Or snake. Or insert whatever appropriate reptile here. It’s been about a week since I started developing a lumpy rash on my hands due to GvHD. On the advice of the doctors, I’ve been applying a steroid cream to the affected areas, and now the skin has hardened and dried up.
So now my hands look like a moulting reptile. Aesthetically it’s quite challenging but more importantly, it’s quite disconcerting to be leaving bits of skin everywhere, like on the bed, in the coffee, in my breakfast, etc. Plus the wife keeps wanting to peel it off! Some sort of fetish!
Since the rash is also on some other parts of my body, it’s also going to be quite challenging to have them peeling off like that. Luckily most of it are in areas that are normally covered by clothing so it’s not going to be visible most of the time. It’s a small price to pay I reckon, but it’s just so annoying.
