Skin Problems with Anemia
I have PA, iron defiency anemia, and possibly Hemolytic anemia, and have been battling to get my levels to normal...But I am also fighting skin problems...Acne...Never had it before, and I am now on Retin A to combat it...Also I have noticed that the skin under my eyes has become more puffy and WRINKLED...I am 35, and I expect wrinkles, but this seems to have happened overnight...within the past few days actually...Could this be something caused by the anemia? Could this be dehydration?...It seems to be occurring under my eyes and under my chin in the neck region...
Also, does anyone have problems taking iron? I am on iron and it is causing so many side effects...I cannot go to the bathroom without a stool softener due to the iron, and it causes severe stomach upset even when taken with food....any ideas on how to combat this?..
