hi all, I have noticed a new oddity. my fingers are starting to look "pruney" all the time. like I've been in the bath all day. also the pads of several of my fingers developed hard empty blisters that peeled off the top layer of skin. This causes me no discomfort, its just odd. has anyone experienced this?

The pruny-ness 'might' be from dehydration. I know I need to drink more water when my fingers are like that (often). I can't remember what the little blisters are . . . but I seem to remember seeing that one here too. Hopefully someone else will remember.

Blessings!

okay I have a new question! about a year ago I had these little hard lumps around my ankle. they would move up and down under my skin. My GP sent me to a surgeon for a biopsy. they came back as calcium deposits. now I am wondering if these could be related to Lupus / autoimmune issues. Any thoughts?

I have been told I have calcium spots/deposits. I do not recall being told anything other than the name and not to worry about em. They are tiny and on my face.
