I am a 55 year old female, in pretty good health after recovering from Breast C. Have been in remission for 5 years. Last week, I had taken a shower, and noticed my neck felt "all leathery" only in the front!:confused::confused: I looked at it, and cannot tell anything different other than the skin being all leathery. Skin is red on chest, cheeks, arms and neck from the constant hot flashes (for 7 VERY LONG YEARS!!!) forced menopause from Tamoxifen and Arimadex. Have been off of them for one year.

Have asked on google, what a cause a female of 55 years old to all of a sudden have a leathery neck only in the front! Was directed here. I have not switched body lotion Oil of Olay, Ivory Aloe Soap, use only Oil of Olay for my face and neck for over 30 years. Other than that, my doctor recently switched my sleeping pills of Tamazpam 30 mg to Trazodone 150mg, and the Trazodone DOES NOT WORK for me! I just went back to taking my Tamazapam, Only took the Trazodone for 4 nights. Under HIGH STRESS, but that is not unusual in the tough economic times my husband and I are experiencing.

Thank you in advance for all responses!
