@Starrynight - I've had some dermatological problems as well and while the staring is unpleasant for me the most unpleasant part was the medication. I was prescribed prednisone, an oral steroid. The prednisone worked great for my skin but came with a lot of unpleasant side effects.
I was on the prednisone for an extended period of time, so I gained a lot of weight. It also made me feel really jumpy and anxious. And if that wasn't bad enough I also got a few very serious infections because steroids lower your immune response.
My skin is better now and I'm off the prednisone. I'm hoping my skin problems never come back because I never want to repeat that experience!
