See a dermatologist!: There must be a derm. clinic there. PRP will be on your scalp. You may have psoriasis, dyshidrotic eczema, pustulosis palmaris, etc. NOT related to protein or any other food. STOP the steroids and see a skin DR right away. Indicate it is urgent when you call. Stay away from ER, stay away from all DRs except dermatologist.
