Treatment for fiberglass damage on skin
I HAVE SUFFERED FOR YEARS WITH SKIN REACTIONS FROM INSULATIONS-FIBERGLASS. SINCE I WAS A CHILD UNTIL NOW I`VE BEEN OVERLY EXPOSED TO IT AND EVEN IF I AVOID IT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. HOW DO I GET THIS OUT OF MY SYSTEM? THANKS
It is difficult to address this problem online. There are many types of skin reactions to environmental exposures. This warrants a visit to the dermatologist for proper assessment.
