    Very interested to read your post because I get that on my right hand - just on the fingertips. It's like the skin has really thinned and every month or so it peels off and is really sore. I just keep putting handcream on and have to wait until it heals, which takes quite a while.

    I had never linked it to LS before, but that does make sense.

    Hi, I'm the same! I never have problems with my skin but I've had an itchy palm for years, then I had outbreaks of painful bruising but just recently, the same hand is dry, red and scaly. I think it is LS. I'm not sure what to do other than go back to my doctor. I hope you get help too.
