I know skin problems are “eww” for some people and if you are that sassy punk who is about to comment something mean, this post is not for you. Hope that my fellow humans understand me😂😇
So, I had a pole on my Instagram, asking what post should I upload next, the majority audience wanted life story, so here it is.
When I was 8 years old (In grade 3rd), I started having these alien spots above my lips. They didn’t look like pimples, plus I wasn’t showing any signs of puberty at the age of 8, so acne was out of the list of possibilities.
I did get some comments on these spots from some Well Known Doctors, my grand moms and their friends(Any doctor would pity their degree after seeing their tips!). They made numerous assumptions, which awed both me and my mom.
Ignoring the old ladies (no offence to anyone) mum and I went to a physician while we should had gone to a dermatologist. That was a bad decision cause he too was clueless.
After another month or so, we went to the dermatologist and continued a treatment for 3 months, he mentioned that these some common skin problems and would go away easily, well that wasn’t the case though. He literally gave up on me and asked me to contact another doctor!
Time went by, I was 9 now, still frustrated of my skin. I think we met 2 doctors in that time span who again couldn’t treat me.
Now, here comes the twist…. (My age at this point of time was 10)
We contacted a homeopathic center and fixed an appointment. The doctor was nice and asked us to visit weekly. He gave me a medicine which I had to consume daily and on every next visit we had to buy another pack of it. Lemme mention that medicine was costly. And after 4 visits we realized that the cahier(s) weren’t providing a receipt. We complained and they gave the lamest excuse possible….
“Homeopathic Medicines can’t be mentioned on a receipt.”
Mom asked, “Why?”
They replied “People will replicate it using chemicals.”
Mom gave them a ‘DO I LOOK LIKE A FOOL’ look and asked where is the doctor? They said that he won’t arrive today and asked us to come again next week.
The Next Week
Same scenario, no doctor was there and we were asked to revisited. Mom grew impatient and returned home with a frown.
On our next visit we found a lock on that clinic, which wasn’t sighted open ever since.
At this point of time, I entered middle school, with judgmental people. I was given mean comments about the spots around my lips. I wasn’t really fond of those punks.
The warts started spreading on my forehead, it looked very unpleasant.
We again visited a homeopathic doctor, who was the first one to state that these were warts. She gave me a liquid which when applied felt painful, it made matters worse so we had to stop it. Now I had to take some tiny medicines.
Believe me they tasted sweet! We had a pretty long treatment. At the age of 12, when almost an year of medicines with that doctor passed, the warts started to minimize. I was soooooo happy. They like literally vanished in another month!

That was all for today!
