Coping, treatment, healthcare system
I think my immune system is a bit off. My hair is falling out/breaking off and I am getting a few spots on my elbows.

So last night after I've done some minutes for my company, I got up to clean my face before I take a bath. I found a spot above my eye brow. Obviously I thought to myself "what the hell are you doing there buddy". I got a fright as I don't get P really in my face. Had a spot on my cheek but its gone. I've applied some coal tar mixture after I had a bath (over my whole face for prevention lol), and this morning I could hardly see it. I did not put make up on in that area but luckily I have a fringe and nobody can see it. I think it might be either from the make up remover I use or my immune system is off. I drank a glass of turmeric as well last night after seeing that spot. My elbows are okay, (so far) but I know it will fade soon. I still use the horse shampoo sometimes but, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
(It's not the wine...just saying...)

Michelle, are you hypothyroid? That is what makes my hair fall out... improving with the Thyroid medication.

Sorry about this Michelle,i got flakes on my elbows, i got one thats on my left side that wont reduce in size, ts like my toxin portal patch, dont want to go, bugger,,I hope that all your hair dosnt fall out Michelle for you but , theres plenty of nice natural looking wigs out there if this happens it is a battle i know with this especially at this time of the year in the uk weather at the moment for us here and USA etc, Its very hot where you are now ,I hope all goes well
06 Dec 07:39
Aaaww sorry Michelle & John...this P really has a mind of its own...shows up where least expected....
06 Dec 07:49
Thanks Ellen, i am okay, think just winter doesnt like me , yes it does have a mind of its own for sure, could be worse for me so i am thankful, lot worse out there isnt there? thank you :)

Are you stressed?
06 Dec 08:47
Hi Margaret, I've never had thyroid problems but I will take some of my kelp for that thank you.
John. I was thinking of getting some hair extensions but I don't know. A wig sounds great. lol
True Ellen. One day we are looking great and next day..uhg.
Hi Bod, no I'm not stressed at all. I think it could be because of the warm weather we have? It's extremely warm in Johannesburg at the moment. I think it might be my immune system or maybe I'm not getting enough antioxidants in my body ;) - like wine....;)
06 Dec 09:13
oh dear wine lol, Dont think thats good for you ?not unless made organically? :)wine might make you feel better? :)
06 Dec 09:17
As long as you put the wig on the right way round Michelle, May look like you have an extra long fringe in front of your face :):)
06 Dec 09:39
Wine is good for you Mich ... its fruit & has anti-oxidants...& its good for the heart & blood.....:-) ... only problem put the wig on before consuming coz as John says it might be put on the wrong way ...............hahahahaaaaaaaaa
06 Dec 09:52
hahahaha John. I always wanted a very long fringe so I don't mind ;)
Now that's my girl Ellen. We understand each other. Wine is fruit and fruit is good for us. Difference is, I don't eat it, I drink it. ;) John, my wine is not a problem at all as I don't drink that much. well...sometimes. I stay with my 4 glasses on a Friday as you know but sometimes going up to 5. It's okay, not a problem for me.

Thats good Michelle, one way of getting all your fruits in :)
06 Dec 14:45
Oh dear Michelle. I'm sure you will work it out. I hope you heal up fast and stop losing hair. You've been having extreme heat in Jozi so maybe that's it
07 Dec 10:58
Hi Bev, yes the heat is killing me and water retention plays a big role in my P as well. I have to say the spot above my eyebrow is almost gone, very light in color and the spots on my elbows are flat, which means, its disappearing. My hair seems to be okay since yesterday. I think I complained to quick lol
07 Dec 11:38
Hair loss is a real thing ,list heaps but luckily I had heaps ,bald spots showed though now all good was a drug that did it for p ,am guessing the chemo one will do it too but this time will be more prepared,it does grow back as my male Dermy said,like it's not an issue,its a real issue to some of us women,some just shave it off,not me ,one sign of loss this time will immediately discontinue cancer drug,nit on it though so won't worry yet
07 Dec 12:23
Yes true Rosey. Women do have an issue with losing hair but I'm sure a lot of men too. I was thinking in going for hair extensions? But what if my hair falls out again? Extensions will be flying everywhere. lol. I can picture my face already.
07 Dec 13:02
ooooh That would be bad but , its making me laugh so its funny lol, i hope you dont lose your hiar though Michelle? well a wig would be okay as long as it dont look like a mop on your head lol :)
07 Dec 15:55
Hope you dont lose your hair Michelle :)
08 Dec 15:45
