Brief Answer: keratolysis exfoliativa Detailed Answer: Hi again See what you are developing is basically a benign and harmless skin condition called keratolysis exfoliativa. This is a fine asymptomatic peeling of skin of the fingers of hands and sometimes of feet as well which tends to develop in certain people during Change of seasons. Nothing much needs to be done other than the regular use of good moisturizers. Avoid prolonged contact with water. This condition might come up every year during this time of the year once it starts in a person's. But it is essentially a harmless condition. Dr Geetika Paul

Hi i got last month periods on 5th dec n this month 1st n got just for two days is it normal
Answered by Dr. Geetika Paul 27 minutes later
Brief Answer: Follow up Detailed Answer: Hi You had your periods this time at a gap of 28 days which is pretty much normal. But since you had scanty bleed this time, you should get a blood hemoglobin analysis done. Anemia is an important cause of scanty bleeds. If this scanty bleed occurs next time too, then you might need a hormonal assessment. You should see a gynecologist for that. A single scanty period is not a cause of much concern. Dr Geetika Paul
