I have my 25th high school reunion this weekend. I went for a facial last Saturday. new place, but they use the same brand as my old place. Had the facial. Thought it stung a little...woke up Sunday with some redness, by Monday full blown blotches and little bumps all over my face. Great high school reunion and I look like I have acne like a teenager!
I picked this new facial spa becuase it is owned by a dermatologist office. They used my same brand, but they used the rosacea formula. I always use the Sensitive skin--in case you have not seen my past posts my skin is ultra sensitive. Wow this itches and burns!
I went in and the nurse practitioner took one look and declared allergy. I have topical steroid on now and am hoping the redness is gone by Friday night.
Can I blame the topical steroid if I want to eat a ton of food (like pred)??????
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
