Slick Skin Syndrome Problem
Slick Skin Syndrome (I made that up), but my fingertips have indeed become slick. I continually drop things and I wondered why I was becoming so clumsy. Then I noticed that the skin on my fingertips were very "slick" and things keep slipping out of my hands as a result. I've never had this problem before. I'm 53 and noticed the problem in the last couple of years or so. It's frustrating--I've become a real klutz. Is this a normal consequence of aging? As the skin on my hands tends to be dry, I've tried various lotions with no favorable result. Is there any remedy or treatment?

Re: Slick Skin Syndrome Problem
You've apparently lost the friction ridges on your fingertips,but I can't find any literature on it.
