DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 24-year-old woman who has suffered from recurring impetigo my entire life. As for my medical history, I am 5 feet 9 inches tall and weigh 138 pounds. Twice a year, without fail, I get this horrible sore on my lower lip that spreads to part of my chin. I can always get it to go away in about two weeks. Meanwhile, it is very unsightly and painful. I cannot disguise it with makeup because it spreads if touched.
DEAR ABBY: I wrote you about a year ago regarding my difficulty in finding a single, educated, relationship-minded man. You advised me to lower my high standards and date outside my preconceived notions of who Mr. Right was - someone younger or without a college degree.
