In it something is. Clearly, thanks for the help in this question.


I receive skin caencr screenings every 6 months now and do not hesitate to act if a suspicious area appears in the meantime that maybe Actinic keratosis.I am very grateful that Obagi NuDerm revealed not only beautiful healthy skin cells but also brought attention to not so healthy skin cells that needed medical attention. The first spot which appeared on my upper lip has been the hardest one to eliminate, I hope only because I was slow to respond to a peeling area on my upper lip when my whole face was going through the peeling and flaking duirng the 16 week NuDerm regimen. That's somewhat understandable, who knew?It was after all the peeling and flaking was over with the exception of that one spot which would heal and flake off only to reappear again. That should have given me a clue and I am not the dense, I just did not suspect anything.The affected area was about the diameter of a dime.This went on for approximately one year and then a red, crusty area appeared on the right temple area and a small red spot on my forehead. when these appeared I knew I needed to go to the dermatologist.That was a few years back and I have returned to Obagi NuDerm, now inNuDerm and ZO Skin Health maintenance and love it including mandatory sunscreen! Also, six month skin caencr screenings!Thank you, Dr. Zein Obagi!
