re: So many deep injuries, bruises and fragile skin.

You sound just like my sister who has been on 0.5mgs Dex for years because of CAH. Last year (2004) she had three injuries to her arms requiring stitches. Two of them happened at work, just brushing her arm up against a box of supplies the first time and the autoclave the second time - she is a dental nurse. Then she ripped her arm on a bush in her garden by just brushing up against it. 

The previous year it was her legs always under assault requiring lots of stitches.

Her skin is so fragile. Interesting because when she went to the plastic surgeon (referred to from her work) to get the first one last year stitched, he knew more about the reason why she had such fragile skin than her endo’s would ever admit. he went in to great length about why it was happening. Another example of endo’s reluctance to join the dots.

What is it with Dex? Is it just because people are getting too high a dose, because of its potency? So many adult women seem to have the very fragile skin with Dex. Whereas I have been on Prednisolone for much the same period of time as my sister and yet I don’t seem to have such thin skin. I bruise easily though.
