I seem to be allergic to wheat gluten, soy, and some other foods. My face has progressively become more mottled, hypopigmented scalp, large pours, face covered in small slightly raised areas with indented centers, wrinkling, almost a poikiloderma type look on face, except that it appears slightly ivory colored under direct sunlight. Some people at one time put some solution/chemicals on it, and then ultraviolet light against my understanding or permission, and then told me they were destroying the elastin and colagen. I did not have a clue what they were talking about at the time. They were cult members I later found out, and I am not..

  • People, especially women, have been putting pretty strange things on their faces for years. And mostly recover. A dermatologist can tell you if you are suffering just from advancing years or something more serious. Eat your greens and fruits, cut down on red meat and dairy. Wash gently and stay out of the sun and keep hydrated.
