Welcome To The Bitchery

I'm half First Nations, half white. I got my biological father's hair and eyes, and my mother's pale skin. Or, as a dermatologist described it, "Celtic" skin. My entire life, my arms have had red bumps on them. I'd exfoliate myself raw, and couldn't ever figure out a way to make my skin smoother.

Then in 2010, I had issues with MRSA. As part of my treatment for that, I started using a cleanser called "Hibiclens".

Chlorhexidine. It's just one of those miracle drugs, I guess.
