Niks face is breaking out very bad. been to the drm & nothing she has given has worked its made it worse. She gave me a script for pills but 1 side effect is that the pills turn the nail beds & lips blue. Not acceptable. I'm not really too happy w/this dr. & can't get an appt. w/another one till October. Yes, I said October.


Does anyone have any suggestions or know of anything I can use? Her back is awful & painful & her face is a wreck thankfully not as bad as her back. I never had a problem nor did the boys but it does run in dh's family. I always used Safeguard soap on my face till I was told I would have wrinkles before I was 50. I'm almost tempted to have her use that soap but I'm afraid of making it worse, she is getting so self concious about it & a couple of girls told her she was ugly because of her pimples.

Can you try a different derm?


That's about the only option I can think of. If it's as bad as you say, the OTC stuff may do nothing.

I'm just now starting to go through this with Eli. And, I really haven't got a clue. For right now I just have him on the over the counter stuff. I'm praying that is good enough. He already has enough issues. And, let's face it kids can be so cruel to each other about the least thing. And, it seems like they are getting worse about it. Somewhere along the way the sensitivity switch got tuned out or something. They seem to be getting more cruel, and think that's the "IN" thing to be. I will pray you find something for Nik. And, that she doesn't get picked on anymore.
Lovingly & Prayerfully,
