Hi Sarah, And i have the same problem as you with the vasculitis and always doctering it.
I am diagnosed with cns vasculitis where it has gone to my brain but i also have it attacking my skin and fingers, toes etc. Here are some of the tips that i found help mine, Also i have a photo on my profile of how bad and ugley mine do get when i was researching the net to see what in the world was going on with my finger's, so when i got diagnosed i put a photo of mine on my profile in hopes it may help someone else, with the same problem that may be like me and not know what it was. I have a dermatologist that i ask for samples from & he gives me samples of some rx sample creams, the newest one that helped the most was called Hylatopic cream
i put it on twice a day and at knght i put it on then put on thin gloves and sleep with the gloves to let it asorb in.
BUT the best mixture so far that has helped the most, like you mine fingers will bust and crack
open and get infected and bleed and be so sore i cant hardly touch anything. I rotate throughout the day with these, First neosporin for the infection, then Extra virgin 100 percent
Coconut oil that i get at the vitiman store or health store, i use the barleans brand it
looks kinda like hard say like crisco but when you scoop out the coconut oil and rub it in your skin it melts with the heat of your hands and the coconut oil will asorb in your skin better and go tto the deeper layers of dermis on your hands and skin. I rotate a few nights of sleeping with gloves and coconut oil and a few nights with rubbing pure extra vitgin olive oil on
my hands and wear gloves to sleep in along with the neosoprin first.
The coconut oil is also good for your hair i soak my hair in it also for an hour and scalp then wash it also you can eat 1 teaspoon a day of the coconut oil witch i do says it supports the immuine system. You can research it on line thats how i found out about it and saw it on the doctors show of the many bennifit's.
I just got ming healed again where they had split so and were infected for weeks!
Hope this help's you a bit, Wishing you the best of luck with your hand's and feet,
I surley know what your going through!! ~ DIANE ~
