STICKY SKIN

By Gary M. White, MD


Acquired cutaneous adherence or "sticky skin."

Oral retinoids, e.g., etretinate [JAAD 1987;16;267].

Androgen-Independent Prostate Cancer Patients Receiving Ketoconazole And Doxorubicin [JAAD 1995;32;571].

Proton-pump inhibitors. Two patients developed sticky palms 2-3 weeks after starting esomeprazole and lansoprazole. Stopping the drugs cured the stickiness. [JAMA Dermatol. 2016;152(6):722-723]. One patient of mine developed sticky skin of the chest after starting omeprazole.
