I’m the type of woman who really does not want to grow old. Really, who wants to grow old these days? I feel like it’s totally unnecessary to get older as life goes on. There’s so much to do, places to go, and people to visit over and over again.
I want to explore the world and know that my time is not short. While I know that I will start breaking down and even die one day, I feel like I don’t have to LOOK it, you know?
That’s why I’m not ashamed to admit that I use chemical peels. Oh, not just peels either. I’ve done all sorts of things to stay looking fit and young.
Some of them are things you do since you’re young, like getting lots of exercise, but some of them include… let’s say knives and injections. So far, I haven’t had any complaints! If people notice something “amiss” then they sure don’t tell me about it. If anything, I’m always being told how good I look and how proud I should be to look the way I do. Works for me!
Well, it did work for me until the strangest thing happened. So I started getting chemical peels, right? Totally routine procedure that my doctors have been doing for years. I mean, it’s not a pleasant experience by any means, but I don’t feel like I’m dying while it’s happening either. Really, you get used to it after a while.
Anyway, I went in and had one of these routine chemical peels. Then I came out a while later to discover… I had rosacea! Can you believe it? The doctors were totally shocked a couple of days later when I walked in for a follow up covered in this terrible red rash. What to do?
They didn’t want to do another peel on me yet. They told me to wait a few days and then come back in again so they could see what was going on. By this point they told me no peels at all for a good long while just to be on the safe side. I went about my business during this time. I mean, I’m not gonna let it stop me, now am I?
But people started pointing out to me… oh hey, did I happen to know that I have a rash all over my face? It was like brand new information folks! Needless to say, I was floored that such a thing had happened to me. I had spent so much of my life taking care of my appearance, and I can safely say that I never had a rash of this magnitude.
I mean, of course I’ve had rashes before. Who hasn’t? But those were the little ones that you get on a few places on your body. No, what I’m talking about here are huge swathes of rashes all over me! When I looked in the mirror, I barely recognized myself, and my family just about all had heart attacks.
So I asked my doctors if this could have been caused by my chemical peels, since that was the last thing I had done, and I have NO history of rosacea at all. They were at a loss for words and said they would get back to me as soon as they could.
Needless to say I didn’t really believe them. Scumbags. I bet they knew exactly what may have happened, but I have no proof of course. But I know I won’t ever be going back there again. Now I have this terrible rosacea afflicting me, and I don’t know what to do. I’ve been to many doctors about it, but they say they can’t really do anything about it unless I want to get very expensive treatments.
Right now the rashes aren’t bothering me so much. They don’t show up very often. In fact, they hardly show up at all now. It makes me wonder if it really was the chemical peel. I only wonder now because I’m thinking about getting another one, because besides the rash, it really worked well for me. People can hardly tell that I’m a day over 35.
But now I’m going to do my due diligence and make sure I don’t get another nasty rash like that again. I’m doing some research to see what the odds are of a chemical peel causing rosacea.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had a problem like this. But finding information on the internet isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. That’s why i’m here tonight. Does anyone have any information about this? I would love to know what’s going on in that department soon.
