Re: Hi Everyone!

Now that this has turned into a sun damage thread I will weigh in with my Keratosis woes. I have a few sun damaged spots on my face and the dermatologist prescribed Efudex -- a cream that attacks fast growing cells. The cream essentially burns off the keratosis including a lot I didn't know about hiding under the skin. After two weeks I look like a kid with bad acne and it feels like a bad sun burn -- ouch

The upside is that the treatment is supposed to be very effective and I will come back better than ever - maybe even in Azanon territory

I also have to get Efudex for Keratosis on my face. So what you're saying is maybe go into hiding for a few weeks until the skin is back to normal? I've seen pictures of folks using the cream. UGH!!!

Good luck man.

I think this is amusing. Hope you will too. Sorry in advance if I told this story already.

As I was being prepped for my surgery last Friday the nurse was getting ready to shave the area of concern (not important to the story what area that was). I asked her to skip that. The Dr. was there and asked me why.
I told him it was a vanity issue. He said, "Are you serious?" I said,
"Absolutely!" No shaving was done. So you see kiddies, old John even tells
the Dr. what to do.
