I wouldn't be worried. Could be ecxema or you may have possibly come in contact with something like poison ivy. Difficult to say without seeing it. I recommend some over- the -counter hydrocortisone cream and if it doesn't clear up in a few days have a doctor look at it.
No I havent been into anything different and havent been around poison ivy. my concern is a reaction to the tegretol. have read that a dangerous side affects is tiny bumps and peeling skin. I have never had anything like this befoe.
Hi, just out of interest are the bumps at the end of your finger nails on the skin, and are they raised and pink looking. I ask because I have these at the moment and they don't hurt. It is the second time I have noticed them, but not sure what causes them. Hope you don't mind me asking about this on your question, but my first thought was some sort of medication reaction. Thanks Liz.
