Read about this artist's life and even a few features
Time for a new journal I figured, especially after my visit to the doctor on Friday.
As some of you may have noticed from the very few pictures I take of myself, I usually have to smooth things out, because for years I have suffered from dry and red skin in my face. I have some good days where it isn't so bad, but that redness have been constant the last few years. I finally got an appointment with my new doctor here and she told me that it was very probably Rosacea, a skin disease triggered by stress and a lot of other things. You can read more about it here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosacea
She also told me that I might also have eczema in addition to this because my face tend to itch a lot. But first and foremost she wanted to focus on getting the rosacea verified and treated, so I'm waiting for an appointment with a skin specialist to verify so that I can start the proper treatment, as of now I have a cream that I have to use every morning when I get up, and before I go to bed in the evening/night, and I have only used it two days and already there are signs of improvement.
But there is a slightly annoying side-effect from the cream, cause immediately after I have applied it, my face get really itchy. But it only lasts for a little while, I read the label and it said that it is a very common side-effect and nothing to worry about, especially not immediately after starting the treatment.
I also had my blood taken for the first time, to check for allergies and other things that might be of importance. So I'm waiting for an answer on that and I'm very curious as to what they find out, if I'm allergic to anything or whatever else they are checking. Funny thing is, when I was gonna have my blood taken, they couldn't find a good vein in my left arm, so they had to move on to my right arm, and they almost didn't find it there either
And to finish things off, I'm thinking of doing features again. They weren't a big success last time until at the very end when the mentions feature were launched. But I found it to be a nice thing to keep me busy sometimes. So, what do you guys think? Tell me in the poll I made
