Customer Question
I'm a 65yr old...

I'm a 65yr old woman, my nose is plagued with blackheads even though I use cleaning wipes for oily skin. I have deep eye bags and laughter lines around the eyes.

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?

Over the past year (since I retired from work) I haven't used much make up (foundation) on my face, whereas I used it daily when working. My skin (mainly around my nose) is awful, I sweat a lot during the night and wake up to horrendous white spots on my nose! My skin actually smells greasy when I wake.

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

I am on medication for depression Fluoxentine) and for arthritis (naproxen).

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.
