Customer Question

Dear Doctor,
I hope you are well.
I basically noticed that the skin and muscles on my hands are becoming very thin that the skin is becoming very transparent where I can not s. flesh. I have noticed this over a few weeks and thinking maybe me talking multi tablets it will help but it hasn't and my flesh is becoming transparent. I ever so worried to what do I need to do and would be so happy if you could advise me on this. I can also send you a snap shot if you like where you could see a bigger picture.
My email is *****@******.*** and would prefer if you could contact me on that.
Thanks for your advise doctor.
Ps, just so you know last year I had swallowed a a cup from the lid of liquid of toliet bleach as I was stressed from home accidently. I have not been given any treatment from here or my gp so I do not know what to do as my gran was ill on the night of the incident where I flew to india in emergency but didn't get no foreign treatment on this. I hope you could help. I just had a ultrasound done there where doctor said I was ok when he did the ultrasound on my rib cage.
