I finally went to the doctor today. I've had this really weird skin condition for the past few months. If you get squeamish easily, now is the time to stop reading.
Ok, you've been warned. It's actually not *that* gross, but more delicate folks would probably prefer not to hear the details.
I've had really dry patchy skin for quite awhile now. It started with my right eyelid, migrated to the right side of my face, and then mirror-imaged itself on the left side of my face. Then I got a patch on my right pelvis area. Then the left pelvis area. And now my neck. So bizarre!
When I rub my eyebrows and eyelids, dry skin flakes off all over.
Remember that scene in The Breakfast Club in which Ally Sheedy uses her own dandruff to decorate her picture? Like snow?
That's my skin.
[insert dry heaving here]
Nothing has worked. I've slathered myself with lotion, heavy cream, hydrocortisone, and even Vaseline. Nothing.
The doctor prescribed a hydrocortisone-based product today. I'm supposed to go back in a few weeks, so he can check on my progress. I'm not particularly optimistic because I've already tried hydrocortisone.
Wish me and my scaly skin luck.
