Molting

For the past several weeks, I've been noticing the skin on my body has been peeling and flaking. It's as if I'm molting. It also reminds me of the stage where an alien is searching for a host body to take over.

It started on my left hand. There were some small water blisters that quickly popped. There were small pieces of skin that could easily be buffed away. Then, it moved to my right hand. Same situation. After my hands, it moved to my toes and feet. They resemble my hands, only the skin is thicker and doesn't peel and flake as easily.

Except for my knees and elbows (which are always dry), the skin on the rest of my body is relatively normal. I've never had a problem with dry skin issues, mostly because I'm a mixed-breed, of sorts.

Still, I can't help but think that something is trying to escape from the inside and looking for another host. And, if it happens, I wouldn't mind if it goes inside Eric Bana, or someone of that nature.

My right hand constantly goes through the same cycle of little blisters that pop and then peel.

The more stressed out that I am, the worse it gets.

Hey Steven ...

It happens to me when:

1. I'm stressed.
2. I don't drink enough water.
3. The weather is really dry.
4. I get horny :P haha. Kidding kidding. :)

Moisturize up with some skin cream and it'll be over in a couple of days. :)

If you have concerns, have you gone to your GP to be referred to a specialist if necessary? - Volker

I get that sometimes, too. I think what I get is a mild form of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyshidrosis, and you can just paint over it with a liguid bandage product like Nu-Skin or Skin Shield or Band Aid Liquid Bandage.

Or it could be the crazies inside you trying to get out.

ask your dermatologyst, it sounds like psoriasis or penphigo, very common under stress, or it might be something else

forget about the doctors. go get some gloves, a scarf, a lot of gauze and wrap yourself. you don't want molting while you're dealing with the VIPs of Canada.
