Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
I'm sorry to hear about this situation
May I ask if you have had any recent tests to diagnose this?
I went to my doctor who referred me to a dermatologist, who eventually diagnosed my conditioned as dermatitis (a rash). I eventually had to diagnose myself after being prescribed a steroid cream, by the dermatologist, which was sulfa-based. I almost died. And so, this is my plight....
Okay, so you have not had these spider webs tested?
No, i've not.
Would be interested to find out what these things are...maybe individual strands of my DNA!
Sorry, can you see my replies?
Yes, still having to work this evening..... Have to pay the bills.
Okay, do you still have any itching?
No, just a small blister on my little finger...which is growing silk.....
I don't think this is normal.
No, it is not normal
It may be due to secretions from a metabolic disorder
I'm the real spider-man!
I would recommend you have the following tests
A complete blood count
and a complete metabolic profile
These 2 tests will help evaluate the cause
It's about time I do this...I'm 56 and have not have a thorough going over for many years.
Yes, then it is time you have these tests
Yes, I'll do that...how am I going to explain to my doctor that I produce spider webs?
You can just repeat it to him exactly how you described it to me
Also, take some samples if you can keep them
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX fear that they're eventually going to put me into a bottle of formaldehyde and study me.
You're welcomeThey cannot study you if you don't agree to it
I'd probably be OK being studied. After all, nobody knows how spider silk is produced.
Okay, if you don't mind being studied you can inform your doctor
Is there still anything you would like to ask on this topic or something you would like me to clarify?
I don't think so. You've given me a path to follow.... Thanks ever so much.
You're very welcome
