shawn2371, hi and welcome I also have a thyroid problem but it has been corrected and/or tested on a regular basis for 35 yrs. I do not have a thyroid any more so it is tested more often. I was tested in July and it was normal of course with the meds. I wonder if I need it tested again?View Thread
Dr Tareen thanks for your reply, ever since I posted this there has been some changes - now the area that has the peeling/flaky skin now is red with no bumps are raised spots. I started to put hydrocort 1% on the spots and it looks better but I am still keeping my appt. to see what it is. I will keep you posted. DebView Thread
johnkamps I have the same thing you do in the same places, I have tried lotions for extra dry skin and it is not helping. I am going to see my Derm. the 14th.
There is no redness or raised spots just dry flaky skin and if I touch it to remove it - it peels off. No clue what it is just started happening in Nov. shortly after moving to a new apt. Same I know. But I never had this before the move.View Thread
Well I guess I am a lucky one, my entire family went gray/silver by the time they turned 50. My mom died at 50 and was completely gray with silver highlights (natural) no dyes. My dad was solid white at 52.
I am 56 with dark brown hair and no gray/silver hair. I have one patch on my head that is natural light blonde (my birth mark) the area where the blonde hair comes out is red. It is also resistant to colors or perms. I am a hair dresser so I have tried everything possible to cover up this area and can not. The bad thing about it is that the birth mark is at the top of my head off to the side - I can't even cover it up with my own hair.
I do dye my girlfriend's hair every 2 months (very short hair) to cover her gray, but I think I will go natural.View Thread
