Hey Melissa, I was a server when I was younger and had it on the tops of my hands. I would get asked that all the time. Got to the point, when they would ask if I burnt myself..and I'd say yes..followed by whatever story came to mind.. LOL I hope you are well!

I told a woman once that it was Leprocy I had.

That's tough. Maybe a chance to educate people? Not easy being the "example" though...

I am usually asked if it's eczema. I reply that it's psoriasis and I am not contagious. This is all one sentence. Depending on the circumstances, I sometimes continue to say things like "it's an auto-immune disorder, it itches like mad, it hurts often".

I told a rude lady thst I had leprocy.
