For weeks now I’ve been trying to figure out why my complexion has been getting worse and worse. I’ve been keeping up with washing my face and my hormones. Usually, that’s enough to keep my skin clear.
What’s odd is that the acne on my back and shoulders is clearing up while my face just keeps getting worse and worse. It’s been driving me crazy until it dawned on me tonight. I was diagnosed with rosacea by my GYN and then again by my PCP. At the time, I didn’t think anything of it. I thought it just had something to do with blushing. Turns out, not so much.
Rosacea, if you have the second type, which I do, includes the blushing part and acne on steroids. Believe me when I tell you that this stuff hurts like Hell! Acne sucks. Rosacea painfully sucks. Hence, my current predicament.
Hopefully, when I ask my PCP to prescribe me something she will. And she won’t make me wait until I see her at the end of next month. Then there’s always the chance that she’ll refer me to a dermatologist, and I’ll have another doctor to add to my roster and waiting to get in to see them.
Which, in case you can’t tell, makes me ever so happy. Not. I just pray my PCP will help me.
Please, God, let her help me.
