Customer Question

I have a co-worker who has her hands and feet bleeding... She says as she walks her feet start to cut, sort of like paper cuts. Right how she carried a chair to move it and her finger tip sliced and she started bleeding again.

Hello
What is your question here?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
What do you think is her diagnosis? Have you seen this before? What would be your suggestion for her next move? I am really concerned for her. She is scared and crying with concern. She also has issues with payment. Her insurance charges her a lot for copayment for any visit.
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.
That is impossible to say.
A diagnosis takes exam and testing.
Here doctor should have told her.
Best guess is that she has fungal infection, or eczema.
It sounds more like eczema.
If so , she might be better off seeing a dermatologist rather than a doctor who blames her.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

The doctor that blamed her is a dermatologist. :( What is eczema?
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.
Eczema is an autoimmune disease which can cause many varieties of skin problems, from rash to blisters...which can become "cuts."
I would suggest she get a hands on second opinion.
Or, if she wants to keep the current doctor, follow up much more often.
