My name is Ruy (rhymes with "guy"), and I've been dealing with skin issues of one kind or another for most of my life. When I was 16 I had a sudden breakout of red spots that appeared all over my body. They were each about 1-2 inches in diameter, and they seemed to appear symmetrically on each half of my body and face. One under each eye, one under each collar bone, one on the bottom of each foot, etc. I went to a skin specialist and they diagnosed it as psoriasis, and gave me some strong cortisone treatment that I applied for several weeks and got rid of all but one spot on the bottom of my foot, which lingered for a number of years coming in and out until it seemed to finally go away when I was about 30.
Then, around 33 or so, some reddish spots began to show up again on my face, especially on the cheeks and under the eyes, and in the furrow of my brow, and also a couple spots on my legs and arms. I assumed it was psoriasis coming back, and told the doctor I saw of my history of diagnosis, so I started the same treatments I had done before. That didn't help, and so I tried a whole bunch of over-the-counter stuff, ranging from more alopathic approaches to naturopathic approaches, none of which had much effect. Things would work for a little while, and then the skin redness and scaliness would come back after a week or two.
I finally went to another skin doctor who told me it wasn't psoriasis, but rather SD. I had never heard of it before, and began googling like crazy to figure out what it was. I didn't find much in the WebMD and other generic online resources, and gave up in frustration. I also tried a number of different treatments that were supposed to help, and none of them seemed to work consistently. A few weeks later my girlfriend showed me the skindrone URL, and said she had found it when she was just browsing around.
I ordered some of the Biom8 products, and when I started to use them, I noticed immediate results. My face went from red and scaly all around my nose and eyes to just a small patch on one side of my nose. I was very impressed, having tried just about everything else I could think of on the market.
Now I'm looking to get rid of the final little patches that appear from time to time, and hopefully deal with this issue permanently. Hoping to find support through this process and learn more about what this skin issue is.
