Another diagnosis

The dermatologist said erythroderma, the oncologist said he had no clue, and today the optometrist said Pop has ectropion - ectropion is a condition in which stretching of the lower eyelid with age allows the eyelid to droop downward and turn outward. Eyelid burns or skin disease may also cause this problem. The doctor also said that there was a stitch from Pop's cataract surgery leftover in his eye, a surgery that happened years ago.

So basically, the eye doctor said the droopy eyelids would clear up as soon as the rash did. In the meantime, he gave Nana a bunch of samples of eye drops and creams.

So that's our update for today. Next week we should have something else to explain this terrible rash.
