Angel In A White Coat

I went to see the dermatologist yesterday. I lost it in her chair. How embarrassing, I know. I'm just so tired of having gross, ugly, itchy skin. She has a plan to help me with all of my problems though. Well, all of my skin problems. I have embarrassing skin ailments but just in case my humiliation helps someone else, I'll discuss it. That's the reason I discuss anything that most (normal) people would keep to themselves.

First, she wants to hydrate my skin. I have very dry skin on my face and body. She told me to bathe with Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar on my face and body. Then, I'm supposed to use Vaseline (the jelly, not the lotion) on my body. I know it sounds gross but it's necessary. I'm using Cetaphil Facial Moisturizer.

I have skin tags, too. They are harmless but ugly. I want them gone. I have to clean the area where the skin tags are (and one mole) with this disinfectant. I have an appointment being scheduled to get all of these removed. I am very excited about this.

After 30 days of hydrating my skin, she will begin to treat my adult onset acne with a topical treatment. She gave me an antibiotic but a topical treatment will be too drying right now.

The other problem I have is facial hair. Yes, I have a beard. It's funny to you but it's a pain to me. I hate it. Mine is not just a few hairs growing here and there either. I could quite possibly grow a full beard. I can't wax or tweeze or use depilatory creams so she is going to do laser treatments. I'm VERY excited about that. I hope it doesn't take forever for me to look better.

I'm also really sick of being gigantic. More on that later...
