So I have had the worst day of my life :(

Recommended Posts

I went to see a dermatologist for my acne which has been stable for 6 months, while I have been following the acne.org regimen with no results.

He told me I had severe rosacea which is pretty much dosen't have a cure and I'm screwed for life.

Added to that he said I was balding considerably....I'm only 18 and I haven't even noticed this myself...but I looked in a mirror and my temple is yeah....bald. Now I don't want to go outside cause it is so obvious, people can't even stare at me from the back or the front now.

:redface:

Rosacea can be calmed. Just follow the derm's instructions. I doubt the derm said you're screwed for life, that's your assumption. And..it's not true.

Regarding baldness: not a big deal. Plenty of bald men are quite sexy. extremely so. I think it's men who think more of their hair than women do. Women don't CARE that much about hair (except their own....:P)

:shifty: thanks , hopefully.

Life is just so mean sometimes, one thing after the another to deal with constantly. As for my rosacea he recommended Intense Pulsed Light, but it is very expensive.

As for the balding I don't know what to do, I'm too young to be bald, I wouldn't mind in my 20's but not now lol. Might just wear my grandma's wig :naughty:

There's more to rosacea treatment than IPL! I'd consider another derm, actually.
