I have had over the past few years reoccurring skin issues.

Customer Question
Hi I have had...

Hi I have had over the past few years reoccurring skin issues. I thought for the longest time I had a parasite or something crazy. The more I tried to tell me doctors they crazier they made me out to be. I have reoccurring lesions on my face, neck, arms back and chest . Now I have a small lump in my eyebrow that is painful and it’s movable! I never had bad acne in my teens and my doctors have said I have folliculitis. However I shouldn’t have had follicutis for 2 years!

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?

2+ years

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

Yes nails are affected on both hands and feet

I also was told by a RN that I had developed MRSA in some areas on my body. I was given antibiotics but symptoms still kept happening to the point where I just stopped going to dermatologist bc I felt they weren’t taking me seriously.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
now I’m left with deformities on my face which has led to MDD and I still have reoccurring lesions all over the top half of my body. Also my face, scalp and neck are itchy all the time.

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.
