@PennyPanic @Mark G thank you both for responding so quickly it’s comforting to know.
The area in question is terrible it’s very small and I wouldn’t even notice it if my anxiety wasn’t on max.
The Dr didn’t seem concerned but after that google search now I’m on even higher alert.
You must never consult Dr Google about anything. There is so much misinformation and catastrophized scenarios on there and should be avoided. Your Doctor knows more than Google so trust him/her. I get those patches on my face also, it's just one of those things and nothing to worry about.
That's just a form of eczema. Years ago...like about 30 years ago I had a similar patch on my neck. Doctor prescribed a cream, it went away and never came back. My mom had something similar last year. Same scenario...dr gave her a cream it never came back. Easy peasy...don't worry.
So a few days ago I noticed a small flaky patch on my face. Today I asked a Dr. about it and he said it’s most likely Seborrheic Dermatitis! He said it’s not a big deal and put some cream on it and it’ll go away. However I then googled it and read all kinds of things about diseas that cause it! Now I’m freaking out.
Anyone else have any insite or deal with this? Is it really as common as some websites say?
Hi Gilly. I have been on this site for sometime. I just need someone to talk to about my anxiety and I like your way of helping others. Not accepting that all my symptoms are caused by anxiety. Feel like my doctors have misdiagnosed me. If you could reply to me please. Not feeling well at all. Thank you.
