Thank you, Dr Freeman and Fretboard
I definitely do not have Hep B but in the early 90s blisters developed on the back of my hands that doctors told me was symptomatic of Porphyria Cutanea Tarda. The skin on my hands and fingers at that time was so fragile that a mere scrape would cause it to lift and peel as easily as a film of glad wrap. I was advised to not spend much time in the sun and to reduce alcohol intake, and I followed the suggestions. I haven't had the blisters or fragile skin for 20 years now, and while I have a drink or two per week, my energy levels are high and I'm physically very active and spend a moderate amount of time in sunlight. I have not taken drugs in 20 years and have never taken medication regularly and only rarely receive a medical prescription.
If my memory serves me well, PCT can be inherited or acquired. I'm not to sure what the case is with me. Should I pursue this? I am active and fit - I evenran a marathon while on my Twinvir treatment!
Thank you once again for your time and concern.
