I had my first biopsy today! Yay, me! Earlier this year I had a rash of sorts appear on my right eyelid. It itched for a week or so but then stopped and was just red. The rash expanded a bit and left my eyelid and encroached on the skin immediately below my eyebrow. I went to a dermatologist in June and after his inspection, he said, "It's either eczema or skin cancer." He gave me some lotions to apply to the rash for two weeks.
I did the lotion thing and saw no improvement. Life got busy so I finally made it back to the dermatologist today. They numbed the skin around my eye and then took some skin for laboratory examination. (I told Leah about the biopsy and she said, with a big grin, "They are doing science with your skin??) Hopefully, the science gives us some indication as to what's going on!
Lance / Dave: I talked to the doctor about "Caucasian Speckle" and he and his nurse lady both laughed at the name we've attached to this "condition."
