I agree with Foxmcdoo here. When I was younger and didn't know as much, I thought my life had been saved when a dermatologist started giving me steroid injections. Every time he gave me one, I could make it three whole weeks without an outbreak. And they also gave me the theory that it was an abundance of white blood cells building up. But then I learned that was destroying my body with the steroid. Not tying to rain on your parade, but the doctors throw things like this at you to make it look like they have an idea what they are doing. For a long time I assumed that people with all this education were actually smarter than me. Foxmcdoo found his own cure, one which no doctor would ever have given him. A bunch of us are trying our own things. I cannot live without Soolantra. Even though I've tried Foxmcdoo's strategy, that doesn't work for me. Different things work for different people. Though your doc says its white blood cells, I firmly believe it's just your body producing lymphatic fluid to address demodex or some other 'presumed' attack on the skin. I wish you luck with whatever your derm puts you on. In the end, who knows- it might work. But if it doesn't, we're here to help you try out some other solutions. It's a long road, buddy.
