2 years - im scared

Posted , 2 users are following.

[color=violet:f746b0b5a6]i am so glad i found this site

i can't tlk to any1 about this, they don't understand!

i have always been a girl that didn't like to show off or walk around with low tops

i got PR 2 years ago, about summer time. i think it was stress from a bad relationship. i was 13 and confused. it started out of nowhere.

Now 15, i haven't been able to live the life i wanted. PR has completely destroyed my confidence. I am only a teenager.

I'm quite petite and that has my confidence at an all time low so PR just buries it 10 ft underground

i don't have the confidence to tlk to boys anymore. i think that they won't like me for whats underneath.

i go to an all girls school so it hurts me more when i see pretty girls, getting changed openly for pe, while i hide and try my best to not let them see me.

i have it on my chest, legs, back, neck, stomach...most places.

i have to be so picky about my clothes and when i go shopping with my friends, they buy these amazing clothes while i live in baggy t-shirts that cover everything.

i am getting really depressed.

it isn't red anymore.

i am brown skinned so its turned more light-dark brown. I have small flat circles everywhere.

i can't go in a sunbed because my skin will go darker and i'm already dark enough!

i don't know what to do. i haven't seen any improvenment in a year.

and my dermotologist just keeps giving me cream that doesn't work.

i'm scared it won't go until i'm older and well i want to live my life.

have the choice to wear low cut tops and have to not analyse clothes before i buy them.

i want to go out and have a good time, instead of sitting in the corner.

i want rid.

any1 help? sad [/color:f746b0b5a6]

    Dear a girl Xx,

    May I know what race are you ? Why you considered your skin as dark skin ? I also a PR patient now. But I really BELIEVE emotion will affect alot on our condition.

    I do understand your feeling , because I undergo the same too right now. I love to wear low top , mini skirt, bikinis etc etc .. but I can't do all these during these period. But I always remind myself , \"Good things go to those who wait\" I wake up everyday for another beautiful beginning. You must always stay positive.

    Nowadays , I take care of my diet , try to take less seafood and choose those attire which is 100% COTTON. By the way , what cream did your doctor give you ?

    Dear a girl Xx ,

    As far as I know , Miconazole cream is an anti-fungal cream. I guess it's not too suitable.

    I'm currently using two creams prescribed by my doctor:

    1. Efficort® hydrocortisone aceponate , 0.127% , 30g (for anti-itch)

    2. Nutraplus® urea (10%) lotion , 200ml (for dry skin)

    Maybe you may try ?

    Take care of your diet and stay happily :D

    Gurl.. it sounds like its not on ur face.. so b happy for that

    because mine is allll over my face neck arms evrywhere

    im also brown skinned. Im black african. Gurl. Trust in Jesus and im tellin u he will heal u. I went to see my pastor and he blessed this soap for me which he calls bible bath. I used it the second i got home so now ive been usin it for 2 and a half days. I bath twice a day and i am sooo happy with the results. The rash is drying up and falling off and i can say that in about another 2 or 3 days it will be gone. Go 2 ur pastor or priest and ask him wot u can do. Prayyy.. just like in the Bible where we learn that Jesus healed the blind and those with leporacy Jesus can heal this 2. God bless x

    I have suffered with this condition 4 times now, it starts in the spring and again in the Autumn. However, my doctor and I have discovered that antibiotics (erythromycin) clears it up immediately.

    Hope this helps.

    I was so sad to read your story, i am 21 and have only had the condition for a couple of months (it appears to be improving recently) and it has felt like the longest 2 months of my life!

    Try 1% hydrocortisone cream on the affected areas (it can leave skin blotchy in terms of different colours, but this fades over time).

    I have found that moisturising every morning and every night has helped, and more recently i have tried gently exfoliating with fragrance free products.

    Luke warm showers are the way forward - anything too warm always makes it look more angry and red, especially after a bath.

    Sunbathing/being outside on a nice day does help - not necessarily to tan (I never sunbathed between 11am-3pm)

    If it is itchy, then DO NOT SCRATCH, I know it made mine worse!

    As for your confidence with boys, you are only 15, boys can wait! I really hope it clears up for you very soon - it must be awful and I am sure we all sympathise!
