Does anyone know if dry skin patches are a symptom of uc or a side affect of any medication? I've had a number since not long after I was diagnosed, my consultant doesn't really give me a straight answer when I ask him if there's any connection. One of the patches is on the top of my foot where it joins my ankle, it's perfectly round and about 2cm in diameter, it's very rough and dry and is raised into a slight bump. It looks a reddy pink colour and has recently cracked open. It's numb to touch but painful if I press on it. I have another one on my arm and neck which aren't as bad and come and go.
If anyone else has experienced these patches and can advise me of any treatment I'd appreciate it.
