Many years ago, I was waiting to get my hair cut and looking through Good Housekeeping magazine when I came across an article on skin cancer. I didn’t really think at the time it would have anything to do with me, but I had time to kill waiting for my appointment, so I read it.
I grew up on the beaches of Southern California before sun block was a given, and looking at the pictures they showed in the article, I thought “hey, I think I might have one of these pre-skin caners they’re talking about.”
So I made an appointment with a recommended dermatologist. She put a magnifying glasses on my face and marked the spots on my forehead and lip that she thought were of concern. Then, she gave me a type of Chemotheropy cream and told me to use it for a month and then switch to Aquaphor healing ointment. Magic!
The cream only affects the area where there is a problem, and as you can see, I had the biggest red mustache and red nose. It’s almost like scrubbing bubbles … it eats off the bad stuff. When I went back in to see the doctor she said, “Wow, you really stuck with it, most people don’t.”
I’m not going to lie, it’s rough, uncomfortable and an ugly drag! But you have to do it! And, after Aquaphor for a week you would have never known anything happened.
