i just went to a neuro and he asked me if my fingers get "pruney" and i was like oh yeah sure.. bc i remembered them getting pruney (not sure when tho!)

i just took a scorching hot bath for 20 minutes and they werent wrinkled at all


is this indicative of small fiber neuropathy?

I was just telling my wife how my hands are looking pruny all of a sudden all the time. would also like to know what this means

The simplest answer is that you are low in hydration.

So drink a bit more water.

The next most likely problem is that your skin is low in oils, reflecting a poor essential fatty acid intake from the diet.

Take some flax oil, eat some flax oil containing foods, or take some fish oil/krill oil. When the skin gets defatted by solvents, or poor intake the fingers may wrinkle.
