Customer Question
I had chronic hives...

I had chronic hives for over a year. My face was covered with hives. The hives have faded and peach fuzz takes their place. ???

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?

I just noticed last evening.

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

I have Stage 4 kidney failure and bone density issues. I’m not on dialysis. I’m seeing a rheumatologist on January 12.

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.
