Recently, I went through a health challenge, and it required me visiting several doctors to figure out what was going on. Luckily, it wasn’t anything serious, and it started out so insignificantly – just a small rash on the side of my face. No biggie, right? Well, not if it stayed that way. Not only was it as itchy as you-know-what, but over the course of the next 4-5 days, it had spread over my entire face and was so insanely itchy that I wanted to claw my face off.
First, I went to the urgent care doctor just to get relief from the itching (it was a Saturday so my doctor wasn’t available). He did me no good. Then I went to one dermatologist after another. They were no help either. They just kept throwing steroid creams at me, injecting me with steroids, and giving me steroid pills. I also got antibiotics and some supposed anti-itch pills that never worked.
