Thought I'd share a bit of health concern with you all. For the past several months, it seems that way to many of my friends have been diagnosed with, and treated for some sort of cancers. With this praying on my mind, I began to notice a spot on the tip of my nose that did not go away. It was a little sore that would begin to heal up then come back again. Of course I began to notice it every time I walked by a mirror. I began to see that it had an irregular shape, and was at times slightly different in color and shape. Now, I have seldom had any pimples or other skin problems, so I began to worry. Lots of folks at the Senior Center had band aids somewhere on their faces, that covered recent skin cancer surgery. Was this what I'm starting into? My age, over exposure to sun, etc, etc, etc.
However, after some investigation and some rather brilliant observations and experimentation I have determined that my nose, and its sore is not do to cancer. I am about to share my conclusions because I'm sure that there are others who may face the same problem.
I drink lots of coffee each day. I drink out of one of those travel mugs with a snap on plastic top and a sip hole. The use of this mug keeps the coffee hot. Upon inspection of the plastic top, I noticed that in the dead center of the top there is a small pointed nib. Every time I take a drink this little pointed nib pokes my nose. I merely sanded the pointed nib off and my nose is healing very well. So beware of the plastic snap on tops on your coffee mugs.
