Quest for Senior Skin Care with Rosacea
(Tyler, TX USA)
First, I want to say how delighted I am to find this helpful website, and how much I appreciate the help you are giving. I look forward to growing in knowledge, and seeing the results as I follow your advice.
I am 77 y/o, fair skinned, with no problems with my skin except aging, although when I was 23, I had acne and was treated with xray - 10 sessions, I remember.
My skin problems: I don't like the wrinkles around my mouth that just started a couple of years ago. Also, for several years, I noticed a couple of red spots on my cheeks that wouldn't go away, and little blood vessels appearing on the sides of my nose. Now I have a bump on my nose that is a little rough that won't go away. When I went to the doctor and dermatologist to check it out, they both said "Rosacea." I didn't know what Rosacea was, but after a while, I decided to find out. When I learned that supposedly there is no cure, I was alarmed.
Thanks so much for helping me get a new start with my skin problems.
