Customer Question
I have sensitive skin...

I have sensitive skin. A few weeks ago I tried a moisturizer that contained honey. Within 2 weeks my pores were full of yellow waxy-like debris. I can't seem to get my pores cleaned out now. I have to be careful about harsh products that hurt my sensitive skin. I never had a big problem with blackheads or whiteheads until this past year. I am 67 years old. Suggestions?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

I noticed more blackheads and whiteheads about a year ago. The honey-laden moisturizer I used 2 months ago made the problems much worse! No major changes in overall skiin or nails.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had A-fib problems 8 months ago, now take Eliquiis and Cardizem.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
