It was the summer of 2010, I was 18 working part-time, going out with friends. I started wearing earrings since I was about 10/11 and never had any itching problems. Until the summer of 2010, I was wearing small green earrings from Primark and all of sudden my left ear started itching, so I scratched it and scratched it, and then 2 days later my right ear started itching and again, I scratched it and scratched it. Then as I kept scratching I noticed that I could peel the skin on my earlobes, so I did and the it was bleeding, then after awhile like two weeks later or so my skin on my both earlobes turned very very dark. I went to the doctor but all he gave me was a cream. Then a few weeks later I got my very boyfriend, he was very spotty, we had s*x and later on I realised that his spots where all over me and this resulted in me getting eczema on my neck, back and arms but now this has all cleared. I still have the infection on both my earlobes and after 3 years that are both still very very very dark and it looks like burnt skin on both my earlobes. I am lost with what to do, I am an aspiring model and I keep on rejecting auditions and castings because no one will hire me with my infection. Im now 21, unemployed and very very lonely and lost because all I want is this infection to go and it's been soo hard for me to deal with this because ive ever had any skin problems before this. I don't feel worth living anymore, I have no confidence in myself. I can't fulfill my dreams but of this skin infection, and I don't know what to do.
