Poor Hudson, and I understand completely, I also have the same thing, Psorasis, so is his like that? it looks the same?, I have AIDS, not aids, but Auto Immune Dificiency of the skin. I produce to many skin cells, that looks like red or white patches on my skin. It flakes and it itches. It is NOT contagious, it is just embarrassing and makes me miserable. Is he on a steroid cream?
