Happy Veterans Day

_________________

Happy Veterans Day, everyone.

A brief notice: Ranger has suffered skin rashes, apparently fungal in nature, since his time in Vietnam. The VA has issued him various treatments over the years (the latest was Nizoral cream), only providing occasional abatement to the symptoms, which always return within days.


Three months ago he saw an Asian dermatologist in private practice who issued him a lotion,
Sodium Sulfacetamide 10%, which has apparently totally cleared the rash following several applications. My skin has not been this clear in over 35 years. This is no infomercial, and Ranger has no stock in the drug.

This drug is not available through the VA, and is manufactured in Canada. It is not very expensive, and is well worth a try if you or anyone you know is troubled by these recurrent rashes.

Many thanks to YOU Brother and to all our Brother and Sister Veterans. I'm pleased you've found amelioration for your skin demons. I'm weary from the road, but the fire is burning hot and slow. Peace to you and Lisa.
