  9. hi gemmalee I feel so lucky. i contacted my dermatologist back in asia. she is the one who administers my steroid injections to my cysts. She is willing to prescribe it for me and sell it to me.

She is willing to sell me a whole vial..for the low low price of 100 pounds per vial ( it is cheaper in Asia) It can go a long way. 1 vial can last 5 months to 1 year. I am just
