Keratoses – Not Psoriasis, but What the Heck
I feel kinda of
funny writing to you about this subject but you are the main man.
I have erythrodermic psoriasis and have what I believe to be
seborrheic keratoses (warty growths) especially around my upper trunk and
back. I have not worn a bra
for three months because it rubs against the warts and hurts like heck.
Has any other woman given you thoughts or insights into this
uncomfortable subject? I do
not know who to turn to but I read FlakeHQ often and you usually come up
with an answer to all life's problems.
Oh, I am fifty-seven years old and it is just not nice to be
braless. Catch ya later. –Karppy
Response: I actually don’t
have very many answers, Karppy, and about braless-ness I’m a dry larder,
an empty cupboard, a spent cell, a tabula
rosa. There was a day,
however, when I considered myself somewhat of an expert on braless-ness.
I was brash and young then, though, with a head full of nonsense.
I remember espousing something called the “pencil test.”
I don’t remember the details....
I did find some
answers about seborrheic keratoses, though.
This link at the American Academy of Dermatology site tells it like
it is: http://www.aad.org/pamphlets/saborr_kera.html.
Sounds to me like you should go have those things removed (three
ways, according to this link) and then go treat yourself to a new
underthing. I kinda think
you’re nice, Karppy, even if you aren’t completely dressed
