Hello folks, I haven't been on here for ages. George is still in care, it has been 6 and a half years now. Up until a month or two ago he was ok, but a recurring chest infection has taken its toll. It has been one thing after another and he is now on his fourth lot of antibiotics. All I want is to see him sitting up in his chair again. Today I noticed that the skin was peeling from his fingers. Can anyone tell me what causes this. The only thing I can think of is that he clenches his hands all the time and today when I tried to straighten his fingers I noticed that his palms were very hot and sweating, could it be cause with sweat.
