View Full Version : Salty Hands

06-06-2012, 12:34 AM
First off I know people with CF have excessively salty sweat. Lately I have noticed a residue on my hands and I tasted one of my fingertips. It was extremely salty, more so than usual. So much so that I feel that I have to wash my hands to get the residue off. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if I should mention this to my CF doctor, whom I’m seeing on Thursday? Responses are greatly appreciated.

He'll probably tell you thats how CF works and not say anything else about it.

I get that from time to time. At least for me it isn't consistent. Just like Frank and Jonathan said it's probably just a normal CF thing <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border="0">

During the summer, DS usually has salt crystals forming in his hairline and one of his baseball caps is white from salt. Ditto with his t-shirts. Sweats out a heck of a lot of salt.

yep. My husband get his jollies drawing pictures in the salt crystals deposited on my skin after I sweat. That's just the way it is for me. If you are losing that much salt, might want to think about supplementing it.

Yep!!! I am my dog's salt lick during the summer. I haven't noticed my hands but get it on my head and arms.
