Customer Question
My face has gotten...

My face has gotten progressively more flushed over the past 6-8 years, It's not blotchy, but pink all over. Doctors & dermatologists have not been able to diagnose my problem. I have had a thyroid test. I have diarrhea intermittently at times, not a lot. I'm a 58 yr old male on Lisinopril but no other meds. Lately my eyes have become more bloodshot & watery and today it is affecting my vision.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Allergic to nothing, but thimerosol eye drops.

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

No, except I had a chryo ablation to my heart 5 yrs ago which successfully stopped by A-FIB. Other wise good health.
