Well, I have tried everything to keep my skin nice. I use moisturizers, wear sunscreen, eat good, exercise, so on and so forth. I do everything I can without goign overboard and doing any harm. I use all natural organic skincare stuff. But I still keep getting skin issues. Acne, oily skin, spider veins, stretch marks, etc. I've seen a dermatologist and he has given me treatments for the acne and spider veins and stuff that made it a little better but he just shrugged at the stretch marks. The most depressing skin issue lately is that the skin on my thighs just seems to be sagging - esp. on the insides of my thighs. It looks super nasty - very baggy and lumpy - and I have no idea why it's doing this. I got stretch marks when I was a kid because of a growth spurt, but I have managed the marks for years and they are pretty much faded. Is it beause I have old stretch marks and the collagen there is broken? What is it? Here's the kicker...I'm only 22. And I don't even have kids yet. Does anybody have any suggestions? I'd really like to wear a swimsuit this summer....or shorts or something...View Thread
Can't really tell as far as the pictures of the bites go, but it looks more like a blood blister than anything...is there more on her than just this one mark on her arm?
Also is there anyone you can contact that can help you and your brother? Your living conditions don't sound safe at all, and I think that you gotta chance making your mother upset because it seems like she's having a mental break and needs help. It's not safe for you guys or her to be living this way.View Thread
