I have been on statins for about a year. Since I started, I have developed various skin problems and am now wondering if the medicine could be the cause.
I started with excema on my hands and put the blame on rubber gloves. I then started seborrhic dermatitis on my head but it has now progressed to my ears and - just now - to my eyebrows, despite the medication I have been prescribed for both.
I have had eruptions of acne rosacea on my chest and blamed that on the heat and resultant sweating.
Worst of all, a granuloma erupted over a bunion scar on my foot early January and has still not closed despite my (over 20) visits to a dermatological hospital. Even they seem perplexed.
This morning, it came to me that the root of all this could be the statin I take each day.
Naturally, I will consult my doctor but first thought I would check it on on Gransnet to see if any of you have had similar problems.
