Customer Question
Hi Thank you for...

Hi Thank you for taking me. I have Sjogrens Syndrome. The backs of my hands are always very dry and skin flakes off. This morning, this never happened before, my hands are beet red, extremely itchy and burning as if hot water was poured over it. The redness stops at my fingers and stops at the side of my hands. I also have severe RA and OA. I receive Orencia infusions monthly. Do you know what this might be and/ or would cortisteroid cream help? I'm in so much pain when I need to was my hands. Thank you so very much

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

I've had Sjogrens for yrs and the back of my hangs have always been ectremely dry znd flakey. Today is the first time this has hapoened

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am sorry for your symptoms.

Your present symptoms are likely due to Raynaud phenomenon, which is a reflex spasm of the arteries. Corticosteroid cream can help. Avoiding cold exposure of any kind (water, ridge, atmosphere) can help in aggravating the symptoms.

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.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
