Question: I just started my monthly period tonight only 1.5 - 2wks after my last cycle. So, I've had 2 this month. Experiencing numb fingertips and the water pruned look on all fingers. Suffering from dry, cracked, bleeding in between fingers, wrists and palm of my hand. Wrists swollen at times, as well the cracking may be very deep and painful. Around the front hairline into my forhead are blister-like red sometimes bleeding bumps, but can also appear flat. Both of these condition' s symptoms are improved when using topical steroid cream.

I've recently been experiencing boils on various parts of my body. Currently, on my chest and inner thigh. Recently on the back of my neck, of which was extremely painful to the point of neck soreness and was extremely large. Also suffering from scalp sores. Not just one or two, but currently seems to be my entire scalp. Hair loss is very present. Lastly, severe acne on my back and chest. Uncommon for me as I am 43. However, not uncommon on my face. 

I gave birth to twin boys last March. 
I have been taking prescribed adderall for almost 10 years
