Skin problems Ever since I was a kid I have had a problem with this. It started on my arms and eventually spread to the majority of my body. The majority of it looks like whiteheads and a few look like blackheads. My mom was told that they would go away by the time I was 30 by my pediatric doctor. I am now fixing to be 32 and it s worse than ever. I was told by my kids doctor that it was hyperkeratosis(not sure about the spelling). From what I have been able to find out on the Internet, it does not really fit what I am experiencing. I am currently 31yrs old, 5 5 tall, 240lbs, and none of my medications have skin side effects(already did my research). If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I greatly appreciate your help. Thank You, B. Musselman P.S. On a different subject; I have also have had a positive ANA. Does this mean that it is possible that I have Lupus like my mom does? I do have a lot of the symptoms of it, but I can t afford to see a rheumatologist. Been denied health insurance two times within the last year and a half. Hope you can help ease my worries a little bit. Thanks again for your time.
