This afternoon I had an appointment with my dermatologist. Did I tell you all that I have yet another skin problem? The week of April 20th I started breaking out with blister type spots. Right when I finally got rid of the other problem. I continued using the medication that was given to me with hopes that it would catch this in time before it began spreading. NOT!!
Today the dermatologist cut yet another part out of my body. This time it is on my right hand. They always want to cut out a piece and send it off to the lab for a biopsy to make sure what they are treating. I go back in two weeks to have the stitches taken out.
I had one very important question today for the dermatologist....Are self-tanners safe and can I use them with this skin problem? The answer was yes, yippee! My entire bod is screaming for a little color. I'm hoping a tan will also make all these blisters be less noticeable or I'll end up looking like a chocolate chip cookie. hehe.
This brings me to a question for you. Do you use self-tanners and if so, what kind do you use? Last year I used a self-tanner from Avon. It was a white lotion that gave me a very gradual tan without streaks over time. I've noticed several lotions at the drug store are now offering this type of tan.
