Stop causative drug: Sticky skin syndrome (or "acquired cutaneous adherence") is a rare side effect of certain drugs, usually etretinate, which is used to treat psoriasis. Also reported with ketoconazole (an anti-fungal) and some chemotherapy agents. If you're taking any of those drugs, ask your doctor about stopping it. If not, you probably have something else, and you'll need to see a dermatologist to find out what.
