Well, Here's Another Thing....

Tuesday, February 04, 2014

Here's something else that's going on with me that I really haven't talked about.

My chest is highly irritated by the sun. It never tans, it just turns red and bumpy.

I went to the dermatologist, and she prescribed the cream, (I can't really remember the name), but it's for pre-cancerous cells on your face and other more sensitive areas. I've known I've had this for a while, in fact, this is not the first time she has prescribed it. She did a few years ago, and I just didn't want to do it, because I didn't want to stay out of the sun. This has been a real winter, and not much sun, so she told me I really needed to do it, so I did.

The directions say to apply this twice a day for 2 weeks.

My chest is hideous!!!!! I took a picture, but I can't even stand to look at it, let alone to share it. The treatment has brought everything out, and is bright flaming red, and is burning, like a real bad sunburn. It is so sensitive, I can't stand to touch it.

Luckily, tomorrow is my two weeks. One of my friends had to use this on his face, and he couldn't stand it for more than 2 or 3 days!!!!! But I wanted it to work, so I did follow the instructions. I am wearing shirts/tops buttoned all the way up to the top, or very high necked shirts/tops. I don't want anyone to see it!!!!!

After tomorrow, I understand that the lesions are going to bust open, and scab over, and eventually peel off. I also understand that new, clear skin is going to grow back.....eventually.

Oh, this has really been disgusting.

But I guess I am paying for all those years out in the sun. I know this is from years ago, and I sure hope it works, and that it eventually will not look too bad.

Well thanks for listening, I just had to get that off my chest........literally!

    You may have Basal cell CA which is minor so they had you get rid of it using a topical agent. Glad you are adhering to the recommendations. That's the price you pay to live in paradise! I will be glad for you when it's healed and you can get back to your norm. I guess perspiration from exercise would be miserable??

    Hang in there sweetheart and hope it's getting better! Thanks for your comments on my blog. I have been using 15 lbs for some time and asked for 20 for Christmas but my DH choose to ignore my request.

    Have a good hump day! Love ya back, BSF! Anna
