Customer Question
My skin is crepy...

My skin is crepy, blotchy.,and very old looking. I am 80 but I would like to look a little better. Every day it seems to get worse. I have a pretty good regime on my face and it is not horrible. What can I do short of plastic surgery. My skin seems diseased.

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 went through a period of hair loss but I seem to habe recovered with vitamins and essential oils. I have one nail that splits at the top. On my skin I have seen a difference in the past five years. I have tried most everything that dermatologist recommend. I have a history of skin cancers.

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

My mother died when I was an infant of heart disease but I have no heart problems. My biggest problems today are gum disease when has just been treated and the skin cancers last one in October.

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.
