I have a pretty interesting story to tell concerning the KAPLAN comlex books. Over the past three weeks, I have noticed erythema, dry skin, and pruritis with heavier concentrations on the distal tips of my fingers and on the skin overlying the hypothenar eminence. This outbreak occured days after I started studying for the COMLEX. In addition, the condition seemed to worsen after studying with the COMLEX books for a long period of time. DX- Contact Dermatitis from KAPLAN COMLEX books. Did this happen to anyone else? Well, I am late to church so I'll continue this story later.
