I've had a kind of chafing rash on the corner of my nose/cheek and on the side of my face by my mouth for about a month. It hasn't gone away, and now they are red patches that chafe sometimes. It looks terrible, but of course, my coworker said she didn't notice it until I mentioned it (isn't that always the case....we think we're such centers of attention sometimes). Called the PCP and asked for a cream over the phone. Figured he's perscribe or recommend some first-line thing that I could try without having to come in and see him. No go. Looks like I gotta get it checked out. It doesn't look like basal, I've had that. Of course My dear mother mentioned that first thing when I mentioned the rash. She's an alarmist, but gotta admit, it got me going.
I hate worrying about nothing. every little ache, rash what have you!!!!!! could be cancer, could be cancer...The gift that keep on annoying!
