Customer Question
I have a diagnosis...

I have a diagnosis of osteoma cutis that is being treated with Retin A, with minor improvement noted. Are there other treatment approaches?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

None except for a number of hard pimple-like eruptions.

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

I am diabetic and a breast cancer survivor of 4 years.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

Yes.

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.
