Customer Question
I am 75 years...

I am 75 years with a severe case of acne. My skin is always clear and have compliments all the time. I have had this happen 6 years ago when my immune system was compromised. I have been fighting a battle with pneumonia with no meds. I am under a doctor's care, but cannot get in to see him or my dermatologist until next week . We are leaving for vacation on Thursday. I did have this happen 5 years ago.

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

I take anti depressants, have been on them for years. VITAMIN D for bone strengh.

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

No, very healthy and active, no one guesses my age

I do. Please
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Of course I still need.help. I am about to report this to all of the TV stations listed along with the Better Business Bureau, FBI. You took my money 12 hours ago .. did not respond until 7 hours later, asking if I still needed help! I will not spend another $50 to have you call me.
Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 3 months ago

I'm sorry for any delay. The inflammation from your pneumonia could certainly cause your face to break out. Since you are already on antibiotics, this outbreak should clear. I will opt out so another expert can be of more help if needed.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
