Thank you so much! You have no idea how you saved me today. I was thinking about Ulthera for couple of months now and was about to schedule one today! Thank God I decided to google about it one more time. My heart ached for all of you ladies who were hurt by this procedure and you are in my thoughts and prayers. One thing for sure…we really have to love ourselves more. I’m sticking to natural way of keeping myself beautiful and younger and I will start with the best of them all—being grateful and happy just the way I am. Sending love to everyone! Remember you are beautiful!
A dermatologist diagnoses perioral dermatitis by examination. No other tests are usually done. The first step in treating perioral dermatitis is to discontinue all topical steroid creams , even non-prescription hydrocortisone. Once the steroid cream is discontinued, the rash appears and feels worse for days to weeks before it starts to improve. Heavy face creams should also be stopped. One must resist the temptation to apply any of these creams to the face when this happens. Think of the face as a cream junkie that needs a "fix"- one needs to go "cold-turkey".

"We are being unfairly punished. If the drug testing agencies cannot determine if an athlete is taking performance enhancing drugs how are the teammates supposed to know?... It negates all the family functions, church functions, and social events we missed in the name of winning an Olympic medal." ]
