Clear Skin.

So I just got back from my dermatologist appointment. My regular physician was concerned about the spots on my skin so he wanted me to see the skin doctor. After an eight week wait I was in and met with her for the first time. She checked my skin in less than three minutes.

I have freckles. That’s what redheads do. We have freckles.

I have also had this little irritation/rash thing on my forehead and the bridge of my nose for awhile. My regular doctor had prescribed some steroid cream that irritated the hell out of my eyes. The dermatologist looked it over and determined that the steroid cream is not a good idea and told me what the problem really is: I have have dandruff.

I am a bald man with dandruff. And not only that, I have dandruff on my forehead and the bridge of my nose. Putting oils, lotions, etc. on my skin is aggravating the condition so she gave me some magic formula that is gentle on the skin to treat the condition. I have a follow up appointment in six weeks.

She also looked over every inch of freckles on my body (and I have a lot of them, even in places you wouldn’t expect them) and there is no concern whatsoever with any of my spots. I’m clear of skin cancer from top to bottom.

I’m just a bald Irishman with dandruff on my forehead.


  1. Glad that you’re okay! You could have saved the doctor bill, though – I would have been happy to check out your spots for you, particularly the ones on your bottom! 😉

  2. I get it in my scalp, on my face, and on my chest. It’s not fun during winter. I’ve never used steroid creams. Cetaphil soap works on my chest and I use Selsun blue/Coal tar shampoo on my scalp/facial hair. Also using tea tree soap/oils can help. So does sunbathing but not tanning/burning.
