I am hoping someone will be able to advice me or point me in the right direction as I now feel I have genuinely run out of options and I am just at my wits end.
Long story short, I purchased green peeling oil from ebay about a year ago and ended up with really ugly hands. I contacted the seller to ask if there was anything I should be aware of because i had now developed a painfully and burning reaction which hsd left my hands really stiff and painful but I got no response back, I was blocked shortly afterwards and I read some feedback they recieved regarding their GPO and someone mentioned experiencing the same and that alcohol was possibly mixed with the GPO? I have continued to try so many things in trial and error to revert my hand to the closest point it was before the GPO episode. I have been to a dermatologist who offered me elocon but it didn't even scratch the surface. I have tried HQ at 4%, amlactin, retin a at 0.5, 0.1 and even a yellow oil peel out of desperation and I just feel like at this point I know I should stop all these trial and error treatments and just ask to see if there is anyone who has experienced similar. Please what helped and what didn't? Is there hope for me at all, will my hands heal or will they remain this way for the rest of my life? The nature of my job requires my hands to always be visible and it is causing me a lot of mental distress and embarrassment when people ask what happened, 9 out of 10 times out of genuine concern.
I would be grateful for any advice, please be kind. Thank you in advance 🙏
