Oh, thank you all for your loving responses, I do feel a little better, although I'm sniffling a little bit.....
mirtodd, thank you, I would appriciate any info you can scrounge up.
hmmm coblue girl, I have taken EPO on occasion, but get laxy, haven't noticed if it gets better during my non lazy times, I should pay more attention.
oh, crap, I hadn't even thought about sunscreen,
Hera, I was in the pharmacy once when the eczema was really bad, when a lady looked at dd, who was sleeping on my shoulder with most of her face hidden, the lady says, "Oh, she has a rash!" DUH. Another time, when her cheeks were just starting to get to the flaking off point, we brought her to get her portrait taken, the girl (teenager) first goes to pick a piece of the flaky stuff off, then says, I'm not going to do a close up because of her face, ok?
What the hell is the matter with people?
Thank you for letting me vent.
