Remember when I was telling you about my eye issue (Click Here)? Well, I was doing everything the doctor told me to do. I was using a warm mask on my eyes for 15 minutes. I was washing my eyelids with a medicated baby wipe. I was using ointment and drops in my eyes and I was using special cleanser and H&R (Healing and Repair) lotion to prevent Rosacea. After doing the whole nine yards for five days, I felt AWFUL. I had a constant headache. My eye itched like crazy. My face was as RED as could be. It itched too! Benadryl truly was my best friend. On Day Six, I stopped EVERYTHING. The next day I felt good. On Day Eight I had a follow-up with the office. I told the office everything that I just told you. The doctor said, "Oh good it worked". I said no, I stopped using it. He said "you're cured". Sigh. I talked to the Cosmetic Coordinator about my face. She told me to stick with it for another THREE weeks. I think I used the product two more times before I came to my senses. Yes, my face is red. I am also Irish. We have pink skin. We are fair. We have blue eyes. It's genetics. But by no means was my face rashed out and itching all of the time. I have flare-ups. I can definitely tell a difference in my skin when I am "junking". But come on. This was ridiculous. I have gotten over my vanity long enough to post these pictures. They are a little scary, I have to warn you. And you can see my facial hair (yikes). That's one of my least favorite things about aging. But...oh well. You probably have it too. If you don't...well, you will.
