Re: Anyone with Fibro have really really dry skin?
I haven't made the dermotogist appt yet but I'm going to. I've always had oily skin all my life, so bad that even the moisturizers and make up that are for oily skin made me break out. It was through alot of trial and error to find the right foundation for me not break out and for the most part I don't. I know it's not good but I stay away from all moisturizers just because it makes me breakout bad; it always has.
But now all of sudden with having fibro, my skin is SO SO dry that my scalp, lips, face and ears ALL are so dry and itch that they flake big! I know you're not suppose to do this but I end using a tweezer to take the big flakes off my face that is covered with make up. My ears get such a buildup of dry skin that I clear it out and it bleeds. My lips, forget it; right now they look like someone beat me up they're so dry. They crack and bleed no matter how much balm I put on them.
But I feel like it happens sort of like a fibro flare; I feel like I'm at the end of the big breakout on my face; all of the under the skin sore pimples are going away and going back to normal. I've tried NOT wearing make up and there's two reasons I would never go out in public like that. One, some people like me are much better off WITH make up, there's no way I'm one of those lucky girls that can go out with no make up, I look so guant and tired looking. 2nd my skin for some reason breaks out with out make up; it's like it needs something to cover it. Men usually say to keep the make up off but my husband agrees with me; keep the make up on, it's just the way it is for me.
I have a twin sister and she has NONE of the problems I have, though she went to a dermotologist a year ago and she said it for her too. They gave her some kind of sulfer retinol face wash. At the time she went my skin was okay but I definitely need to go now. Thanks for your response!!
