I’m not happy about my Keratosis. Seeing my reflection yesterday made me realise how much of the problem I still have, because I look as if I have aged with the condition.
My mum always tried to instil in me from an early that it was important for me to look after myself and although I still make every effort, there are days where I simply struggle because of facial keratosis. I tend to switch off to it, so I don’t have to think about it.
My skin dries out with the condition at certain parts of the year, when I have problems applying makeup that bothers me. I was told that the only way to solve this problem was to move abroad. It’s not a consideration for the foreseeable, since school, university and work commitments are here, but we can never say never.
My specialist believes that living in a warmer climate would acclimatise my skin therefore reducing the problem of the keratosis. It seriously should be a consideration; if it may help me reduce the condition; or better still get rid of it completely.
The problem would be trying to work out where we would want to live. Now that wouldn’t be such a bad problem, would it?
