Does anyone else have this? It has been about 3 years off and on for me. I thought it was because I was deficient in vitamin B so I started taking supplements. It finally cleared after a few months. Everytime i stopped the vitamin B, even for a week, it would come back. I asked my doctor and he said it looks like rosecea (stupid response, it does NOT look like rosecea, I have cracks on the corners of my lips not a bumpy red rash on my face). Finally I stayed on the vitamin B and it went away.
Then my yearly phyiscal was coming up and I did something stupid, I stopped the vitamin B about a month before my appt hoping it would come back so I could tell my PCP and insist he find why I have this. Well, this time it didn't come back and I never even mentioned it to the doctor thinking it was gone for good. I stayed off the B supplements. Then about a month after my appt it came back. This was in June and it is still here. I started again on the vitamin B and it has lessened but has never gone away 100%.
It hurts, itches and looks awful. And I'm scared as to why I can't get rid of it. Obvious answer probably is to go to to the doctor but when he looks at me and says it roseca I feel like I am fighting a losing battle.
So I wondering if a anyone else has this and if so do you know why and how did you get it to go away?
