I hate the skin I’m in right now.
Literally, my skin is horrid. One of the side effects of the Z is what’s commonly referred to as “chicken skin” – skin that is bumpy and sometimes itchy. It looks like wee goose bumps all over…but they aren’t. I have it everywhere.
The worst part is that I have it on my face. No part of my body is smooth. I’ve always had pretty decent skin, but this is worse than teenage (or mid-thirties) acne. I hate slathering lotion on because it doesn’t make my skin feel any smoother. My face feels dry and bumpy. Although, I don’t have to worry as much about shaving my legs because you can’t really see the hair beyond the bumps, so bonus!
I have some cream to try for my face and hopefully it will work, because between the face and the hair loss, I’m having a hard time looking at myself in the mirror lately. At least my overly hairy arms look normal haired these days! And my Brooke Shields eyebrows? Well, I don’t think we can use that comparison anymore.
The hair loss isn’t as bad as the bumpy face though. Right now.
Ah, side effects are fun. You better be working, Z!!
