The Eczema Experience

For the first time in my life, I know what is eczema or dermatitis when this happens on me. Not on my hand or leg or body but on my face. Damn. There are red patches and rashes around my mouth and eyes. It could be caused by allergy to my Kose skincare and poor immune system due to unhealthy working lifestyle. The bad thing is this eczema cannot be cured, it can only be controlled.

I went to Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital last week and the medications were futile as my face condition did not improve at all. So yesterday I went to Ting Skin Specialist as recommended by many people. It's hard to make appointment as the phone line was always engaged. After several retries, the line eventually managed to get through at 9.15 am. The earliest time slot available was 4 pm and my number was 41. Holy smoke. So many people already made appointment in a short 15-minute time? So in the evening, I went to the clinic. Besides prescribing medicines and ointment, the doctor gave me steroid injection, on my backside. I requested for arm but he said cannot because arm does not have enough muscle. He mentioned that inflammation would go away in 3 days after the injection. It's getting better today but I hope it will not come back to me after 3 days. I could still feel the side effect of dry mouth now. I asked him how much time is required for the redness to be cleared from my skin and he said WEEKS!! Leaving me no choice but to live with it until I'm fully recovered.

My fellow friends, please take care of your health. Eczema is no fun.

Happy Deepavali!
