Things Not To Say To An Eczema Sufferer

Things Not To Say To An Eczema Sufferer: Dermatologist Version

So today after refusing to use steroidal treatment she comes out with this gem:

"...Well if you want to go round with a disease on your face instead."

Really? Did you just tell an eczema sufferer (eczema being an inflammatory condition not a disease) that they have a DISEASED face?

I hope to the Gods that this ridiculously idiotic woman doesn't go round spouting this sort of tripe as a scare factor to other more vulnerable patients. Way to give someone a complex hmm?

/Rant of the day

Thanks for your comments guys! I'm going to ask my nurse if I can see someone different next time.
