Lynnie, get the FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) checked. They may be able to help that, also the derm may be able to give a topical solution. The dermatologists are more picky usually and will do more to preserve your good looks than the med docs, who are dealing with people really dying. Still, the dermatologist can do all the hormone tests, mine is going to do me when I get back from Mayo. And he will treat me better than mylocal endo,who does nothing, not even testing, and disagrees with a panel of docs at Mayo. My endo at mayo who is good says the pituitary can get messed up by autoimmune disease and the steroids we take, so he tests stuff.
