Christmas doesn’t come every day!!
This gentleman came to see me just a couple weeks ago, referred by a internist because he has a skin cancer, a basal cell carcinoma, on his chest that he needs to have removed completely. He is quite a character, and I couldn’t help but notice that he has a lot of sun damage, and many comedones (blackheads and whiteheads). He used to be a fireman (I think in Indiana), one of his many jobs in his life, and he was raised on a farm. The years of sun exposure and also exposure to soot from fires, have likely caused him to develop quite a few blackheads and whiteheads. He doesn’t like them, and has tried to squeeze them out, but hasn’t even very successful.
As we were finishing up our visit, I decided I would ask him whether he knew he had a lot of blackheads on his face, and whether he would like me to remove them? His response was great: “I would walk through a wall of fire if you could do that for me!” Always amazes me how interested my patients are in me getting rid of such things. Makes it all worthwhile!
I realize I didn’t extract all of his blackheads, but he is a work in progress! We will be seeing him at least two more times and will do further blackhead extractions.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season, spending it with people you love. And I hope some of them are popaholics like you! I bet some of them don’t even know they are popaholics and this may be their first video to convert them!
Thank you so much for watching! Merry Christmas!!
