I have dry patches of skin on the t-zone of my face. The only thing that works is to wet the area and quite literally SCRAPE the area free of the dead skin. This solves the problem for about 24 hours but leaves the area red and it makes my skin burn when I apply moisturizer afterwards. I have had this problem every single day for years.
1. I use a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser by Neutrogena that is marketed for "even the most dry and sensitive skin."
2. I use a gentle, fragrance-free, oil-free moisturizer by Cetaphil that has hyaluronic acid and is marketed for extra dry skin daily.
3. I use luke-warm water when showering.
I simply cannot afford to see a dermatologist. Especially if he's just going to suggest something that I could have found out for free or much cheaper. I will take any suggestions. Thank you.1 AnswerSkin Conditions9 months ago
I have had scalp problems for as long as I can remember, 10+ years. Dry red flaky patches all over. Now it’s spread to my face. Dry red flaky patches. Nothing helps. Dandruff shampoo doesn’t help my scalp, and it doesn’t help my face either because I’ve tried. Coconut oil does nothing. Tea tree oil does nothing. Moisturizers and lotion do nothing except keep the flaking at bay for around 5 minutes. I can’t afford to see a doctor. Any suggestions or ideas? My dad had it as well, and he said he grew out of it, but only on his scalp. I’d rather not just wait to grow out of it unless I absolutely have to.3 AnswersSkin Conditions11 months ago
We've been together for only 2 months. We are both gay men. About three weeks into our relationship I made out with and groped a girl at a party while drunk, but didn't get any sexual satisfaction out of it. I don't know why I did it, but it was just something to do I guess. I didn't do it to cheat. I never intended on having sex with her.
I told him I kissed her and pulled away. I didn't tell him I made out with and groped her. I did pull away, but only after a little while.
Now the guilt is eating me from the inside out, and I feel like I have to tell him. I made a mistake that was out of character, and I learned from that mistake. I know I'll never do it again, I like him too much at this point, but I wasn't sure whether I wanted to be with him then or not.
I have friends who say it isn't worth telling him and hurting him again as I'm just filling in details that don't need to be filled in.
I have friends saying that I should tell him because he deserves to know.
TLDR: We are a gay couple. I made out with and groped a girl at a party and then pulled away, but only told him I kissed her and then pulled away. Do I tell him, or just let it go?3 AnswersSingles & Dating1 year ago
I spoke to this boy on tinder about a year ago. We “talked” for a few months and just fell off. He lived three hours a away, and we talked about how when he transferred to a university in my city the next year, we would be able to see each other and finally be together. After we fell off, I met another boy of whom I have been dating for 7 months. I love him. But then the other boy came to my city, he texted me, and ever since then, he has been all I can think about. I want to be with him. I do. Love at first sight kind of thing. Turns out it happened for him on tinder a year ago, but it only happened for me when I met him in person. But I’ve been with this other guy for 7 months. I don’t know what to do. The guy I’m with now is funny, smart, the marry kind of guy. But the other guy blows him out of the water. I can’t explain it. I don’t know what to do. The other guy has given me an ultimatum... it’s me or him... My current guy is better off for me in the long run I feel like, but I want to be with the other one. I don’t know why. I’ve never felt this way about anyone before. I’m 19 years old. Who should I choose for the love of god because he’ll if I know...3 AnswersSingles & Dating3 years ago
So we were playing a drinking game one night with never have I ever. Shots every time we haven't done something. Anyone, questions is related to the craziest sex thing you've ever done. He ends up saying that he has had sex with two married men in the past. To me that is absolutely revolting, and I was abhorred. I imagine the feeling similar to that of a conservative fathers son telling him that he is gay. Just absolutely ashamed and disapppinted and disgusted. The mere thought completely ruins my mood. But why? It's not like he cheated on me. I don't know why I am so disgusted. Would anyone else be as disgusted as I am if they found out that info? How can I get over it? Idk, but its really bothering more than it probably should. We're both 19.7 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered3 years ago
I have edited a video in iMovie on my iPhone 7 for my YouTube channel but when I tried to export the video yesterday, it got about a fourth of the way through and then just stopped exporting. I tried again today, but now it just gives me an error before it even starts exporting and when I try to play the video it won't play, nor will any sequence of video in the editing mode, either. I really don't want to spend six more hours editing the video, so is there anything that could be done? Sounds like corruption, but I didn't import anything into the video except for a few photos that I created in a separate app.
I can scrub through the video with my finger fine, and all of the frames of the video are intact, but when I try to play it, it doesn't work. I find that to be interesting.2 AnswersSoftware4 years ago
My recruiter talked a good talk. I was settled on the Marines but now I'm second guessing myself, because I went to the Army branch and they had a lot of good stuff to say too. But when I think about going to MEPS, I want to throw up. When I think about boot camp, I want to throw up. When I think about the Marines, I want to throw up. Maybe this is all because my recruiter has pressured me into going to MEPS. I have signed some papers with him, and he has my information. He has paid for a hotel for me and we are scheduled to leave on Monday. I told him I didn't want to go, but he keeps insisting. I don't want to go. My heart is not in it. It just isn't. My friend and I were planning on doing the buddy system, and now we might not be able to do that. I don't know what to do. I just wanted more time to think about it but he won't give it to me. What should I do? I'm scared, uncomfortable, angry, and disgusted all at the same time with the situation...1 AnswerMilitary4 years ago
As a gay man, I am constantly falling in love with straight men. They are so masculine, and I love that in a man. I don't love straight men because they are straight, I love them because they are dominant and masculine on a level that no gay man I've ever seen can reach. But I am a man, and thus have no chance with them. Nonetheless, when I meet straight men I find attractive, I always fall for them and develop an unhealthy attachment to them. I tell myself I won't, I tell myself that I can control myself, but it seems like I just can't help it. I just grow so attached. I'm like a leech, except the host is the one who is doing the damage. I move from straight guy to straight guy, and the process is the same: fall in love with him, wish that someday he'll give me a chance, and another one will come along. I don't know how to help this. I can't think about any other person but the guy I'm currently trying to get with. It's very unhealthy, but I don't know how to stop myself, and it seems like I can't. Why do I get so attached only to people who can't love me back in the same way?6 AnswersLesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered4 years ago
I'm 17. Going to be a senior in high school. I just don't understand why, I've grown up in my current city since sixth grade, and have been introverted but within the last year I've been trying to shake that introversion. I made a group of friends, but soon enough, I was excluded from everything that they did/do. I don't know why. They won't tell me if I ask, and if I do they'll gossip about me to the rest of the groups and label me a needy loser so I don't consider them to be my friends anymore. I don't have anyone else though, because I refuse to participate in the unnecessary drama that comes with immature high school relationships. Am I too mature for my peers? I don't get it. I try, but don't succeed. I have many "school friends" but none that I hang out with. Long story short I've had a terrible life with an alcoholic mother dragging me all over the country to feed off of her family members and her own daughter to feed her addiction, so could that experience contribute in some way? After a series of events I know live with my dad. I basically live alone and care for myself, not by choice but because my dad works basically 24/7. It's been that way since freshman year. People I talk to envy it, but I hate it. I'm so lonely all the time, but really I don't think that there is anything I can do. I just don't seem to fit in anywhere, and I don't even know if I want to but I want a group to call my friends. Idk. I'm really struggling. Any suggestions?3 AnswersFriends5 years ago

My boyfriend wants to dress up as a "sexy devil" in just underwear and presumably horns but nothing else. He will be at a party with other guys and I won't be there because It's long distance. I don't want people looking at my man. I don't want people touching him. I don't want people flirting with him. I told him I hate the idea of a "sluty" devil, but he just won't give up on it. I told him I'd be mad and not talk to him if he wore it. Should I feel this way or should I let him go? Trust is not an issue, I trust him, It's just I don't trust the other guys that could flirt and touch and stuff.2 AnswersSingles & Dating6 years ago
Hello, I am a 16 year old male. I have suddenly lost the desire to eat. The thought or visual of food actually makes me nauseous. My breakfast this morning I had to wolf down, and I'm having trouble keeping it down bc the thought of it alone is disgusting. I realize I need food to eat and survive, thus I still continue to eat. I don't want to eat food because it is repulsive. The root of this issue remains to be seen. School starts in under a week, and that could contribute, but this has never happened before. I recently started talking to a guy, I don't know why that would contribute to my problem but it could I guess. I have been wanting to lose my weight for the longest time. I feel as though I am fat, but others say I am not. Sometimes I want to starve myself to lose weight but I know I shouldn't so I don't. Is my subconscious making me repulsed by food to get what I really want? Which of course, is to have a very low body fat percentage, and mostly a flat stomach? I'm not sure, I know this isn't healthy, and if I told my dad he wouldn't understand.

My friend and I were having a discussion yesterday about a program at a college where you go and stay for 6 weeks for free. I was asked her how it worked and things like that. I told her it doesn't make any sense for colleges to give free classes out. She got really mad and started yelling at me about how annoying and stupid I was being. I calmed her down and dropped the subject. I had one more question a little later. It was a basic yes or no answer. She wouldn't answer it bc she said I'd get annoying if she answered it so she didnt. At that point I was pissed off so I told her she was pissing me off and she started telling me I was stupid and annoying. Today she brought it up again, once again I got pissed, and told her again how annoying and irrationial she was being herself. She stormed off; she's never done these things and I don't understand why she's doing it now. Who has the right to be annoyed here and why would she be acting like this?2 AnswersFriends6 years ago

I was cleaning today and found 3 condoms of various brands under his hat on the dining table. I am concerned that my father is seeing prostitutes.
