Laser and acne breakout

Laser was fine, not too painful and the redness was minimal and was mostly gone by 2nd day... but, acne breakout like crazy. It looks so much worse than when the skin was red. Needless to say, it has me freaking out. I did a google search about it and it seems common enough as a reaction from burnt hair in the follicle, but it still freaks me out. What i have read, it can happen in the first 2-3 treatments and should be good after that. Still, I am freaking out! ahhhhhhh.....

I don't blame you for freaking out, Meagan. it's ugly, and harkens back to being 16. The same thing happened to me, and the techs told me it was folliculitis, an inflammation of the hair follicles, and that it is usually worse the first 2-3 sessions.

The laser center may have some type of gel to sooth and medicate the follicles. it may not help the current breakout, but if you apply it several times a day the next time, it should prevent or minimize the condition. In the meantime, ask you pharmacist for any good OTC treatments, or ask the nearest 16 year old. ;)

      "Landfall just north of Cape Coral around 2PM EDT today, 946mb Major Hurricane. Slowly tracks NNE and just south of Deltona middle of the day Thursday 990mb and dumping a swath of over 20" of rain accumulation to this point between roughly Bradenton to Lakeland."   I live in Deltona. We're doing the last of our preparation today.

      By all means do what is working best for you two, but just as a thought and hint, check with your local LGBTQ center and see if they have clothing swap days for Trans people.  I know it says swap, but the one at one of the centers I am part of simply has the clothing for free, some of it is donated new by local sewing shops that produce high end clothing and have production overruns too.  It is wonderful to hear that the two of you are comfortable and happy to do that for now.

      My 15 year old M2F daughter is now just about the same size as me, has outgrown her original wardrobe (she transitioned at 12) and are now sharing outfits. It helps that I have over 30 outfits in my in my closet and now it has become a shared closet for both of us. This has truly helped on expenses as it's very costly as it is having a transgender daughter. I know this is not for everyone as each has their own situations, but food for thought for those are in a position to be clothes sharing.

      Welcome to the Forums, your story is very much like the ones we hear often.  Gender Dysphoria is a condition that is Consistent, Persistent, and in time VERY Insistent.  Dive on in and join in conversations and read up on what has helped others the most.

      Hey y'all ima dive right in. I first realized I was trans like fully accepted at age 24 I was going to transition my wife was supporting so on and so on. She then cheated on me and outed me to the world and I put a clamp on this and swore it'd never return we'll 8 years later it's back and crippled me. I've got a beautiful family a wife and 2 kids 10 & 12 my own business and an Uber tatted and ripped masculine body but here we go again I can't even think straight or focus I wan't to be a woman FUUUUUCK I am seeing a therapist every 2 weeks and used her as my excuse to dress again I can't even hardly function help any input??

      I started on estrogen patches at 71, 2 3/4 years ago. No problems, but it's important to do this under a doctor's supervision with tests to monitor E & T levels.

      Hi. I recently had voice feminization surgery with Dr. Haben in Rochester, NY. There's another thread with a woman who wasn't so happy with the results, so check out that discussion, too. I agree with what most of the people above said. This surgery is probably one of the riskier ones, but I really wanted to have it done. I'm only about a month and a half post-op, so I still have a couple of months (or more) before I can really judge the results. I'm quite satisfied with the results, however. My pitch is noticeably higher and that's what I was aiming for. My voice is still a bit weak, but I only just started talking, so I feel confident that that will improve. I thought Dr. Haben did a good job. If you decide to get this surgery make sure you have plenty of time to recover. Good luck with whatever you decided.

      I, too, started a couple of months before turning 69. I have as family history of cardiac issues, no including heart attacks, and my I have 3 cardiac stents myself. I'm on a blood thinner, and I take me estrogen pills sublingually to minimize adverse effects. Working well for me so far, 15 months in. Cardio workup in the spring was all systems go.
