Hello Walter,I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry about your significant symptoms for long.
Were any investigations like MRI done for your shoulder pain? What are the treatments done for it?

Thanks for the photos.
The hands lesions are because of emphysema. The oxygen levels of peripheries remain decreased in this medical condition. That causes skin erosion and secondary infections. The secondary infections are controlled by the various creams you use but there is recurrence due to lack of skin integrity (decreased oxygen flow at the distal part of the body / limbs predispose for skin to wear and tear easily again and again).
The medications you may be taking (especially if you are on oral or inhalation steroids), too decrease the skin integrity and capillary blood flow to the distal parts and responsible for the recurrent lesions.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
