  1. Not PIH, really need your help?

    @FriskyCreek your comment on a psychiatrist says everything I need to know about you. IPL is the only recommendation my dermatologist has made. I've seen maybe 6 dermatologists about this redness and most say I just need to give it time. It's been four years. Yes, when I'm 152 years old I'm sure it will fade slightly. Great treatment plan doc! Honestly the doctors just don't care. And I don't blame them because I don't really care about them either. I'm just another patient who pays his co-pay and moves through the office. The only doctors with an action plan suggest IPL.  The IPL I had last week made the redness get worse and took until today (4 days later) for the redness to get back to where it was before the IPL. I really really don't have the time or the patience anymore.

    This photo was taken a while ago and I've posted it on this board before.  The redness is still there and its been 4 years.  @Kid Charlemagne, tell me again how thankful I should be. @Robertitoo, I've had this since I was 19.

    I visited my dermatologist yesterday and got an IPL laser, now its even more red -- I cant even relate to anyone on these forums, everyone else has something pop up and go away in a couple of weeks/months, never something like this. I feel literally disfigured because of this spot on my face. It's not just the redness, ever since this popped up years ago there has been more puffiness under one eye than the other. My face isn't symmetric anymore and I'm about ready to check out.

    Thank you for the reply MiraculousTea. You're right, it is PIE. PIE is just not talked about much on the internet. I've never heard of taking digestive enzymes for this. I'll also add that I think it's strange that PIE just returned out of nowhere with no real reason. I had this spot vbeamed until it was gone last time and now its back? With no new cyst or acne? Again, there is not a lot information on this anywhere on the internet and it really does make me wonder if this is to be expected or is strange.  I called my derm today and will hopefully be setting up a vbeam this week. crossing my fingers. I wish more could be done, it seems like a relatively simple problem that is driving me crazy.

    Jeez thanks.
  6. I really need all of your help. I am at the edge of my wits and am mentally in a very bad spot. Please help me.  3 years ago now I had an acne black head that inflamed into a huge cyst (we are talking huge). This happened right under my eye and honestly I was mortified by this cyst that literally became bigger than my eye. After 6 days of having it I was able to see my derm who drained it and gave me a cortisone shot. The inflammation went down but the skin remained red. I immediately developed serious social anxiety because of this redness (the redness was larger than my eye).  After two years, it eventually faded. It was one of those spots that, if you pressed on it, the redness would go away for a second and then turn red again. Now a year after it healed, the same spot randomly turned red again. No initial inflammation, just the same skin turned red. It's a little less red but literally there is no cyst there that caused this or new inflammation that caused this.  I can't live with this thing. If I press on it, it will turn white and then redness will return. Please help me. It's now been like this for a week. And I am literally going to quit my salaried job later this week if this is still here. I am not joking. I will live out of my car until I am dead. I am mentally defeated by this spot and it has literally ruined years of my life. I had to wear makeup for a full year in public when I had this the first time and I thought this nightmare was over. Is there anything I can put on red, post-injury skin that stays red? Cortisone?  Please
