From this study (5 months ago):
Some of the symptoms and drugs I added are not 100 percent correct I just could not find them in the drop downs. I just selected what I thought was closest.
From this study (4 years ago):
patchy, red, crumbly, almost like dermatitis only in redder flakier patches on my upper legs, two patches on buttox, one baseball sized on the inner arm, face is SO dry all the time...I used to have perfect skin, just a couple 2-3 yrs ago (I'm 34), CAN ADDERALL BE CAUSING THIS GROSS SKIN CONDITION????
PS- It's "strange" itchy...Like nervy itchy...Gets REALLY red and "puffed/raised up" after hot baths. If I scrape the flakes off because I'm trying to get the area smoother, sometimes it will start to seep...???YUCK!!!!
