Now that I finally made up my mind



Recommended Posts

Ever since I decided to go for Bariatric surgery I am anxious to get it over with. I have some issues with my skin that I hope will go away after the surgery. It’s not easy to talk about but I’m living with these issues for a long time. Is anyone else troubled with skin breakdown and bumps? Did they go away after surgery? Thanks.

Are you talking about the wet rashes and yeast infections in the folds and your neck? Yes, they smelled and burned, and they go away. The lumps are common for obese people. I used to get them on my tighs and my vagina. Large, painful ones. They also go away. Psoriasis will go away also.

I have HS. Its an auto immune skin disease that I hope will go away with the weight loss. I get very painful boils/bumps in-between my thighs and buttchecks and sometimes my vaginal area. I pray that this issues goes away.

I also have HS, and I’m hoping that the weight loss will offer some relief. I’m looking for people that have had positive skin changes after this surgery, too! I have some eczema and I can’t remember the name of the other term I have—it’s basically clogged hair follicles on the arms/legs that just look like red bumps everywhere. I forget the term.

My issue is with large bumps under the arm, under breast and in private area. I've had quite a few procedures over the years to drain them. The only other thing I have is at the top of my butt. I get redness and then the skin opens up like a fissure. It burns like hell. I think it's the butt cheeks rubbing together or something causing it. I hate it!

I think it's keratoses pilar
They usually prescribe lac-hydrin for it.

I never knew the name if the condition but I used to experience this when I was heavier. It's completely gone now like it never existed ❤

Hidradenitis Suppurativa! It’s awful, and I’m considered a mild case!

Also yes, perfektlynrml, keratosis pilaris is it! I knew once I saw it I would remember!
