I have small red patches on my lower legs that are rough - seem almost like psoriasis. The one thing that I really used to like about my appearance was my skin - now, not so much. This is a bummer and I don't feel as though I can wear a skirt or shorts any longer. My hands are getting bad. My face has gotten better since putting the protopic ointment on.

Talk to your rheumy and find a dermetologist. Sorry, it sounds like you need some special cream or something.

I heard an infomercial last night about a base make up that the stars use to cover up skin problems. I can't remember the name of it. I'll check in my new issue of LFA Now, they advertise these types of things alot. Judy
