Patient :Im almost 18 years old and since I was 12 years old I noticed my face is extremely small compared to my body. I look at all my family members and see that their faces are large in size and very healthy and normal looking. At my 17th birthday party everyone kept saying I dont look 17 and I still look like im 12 years old. its very hurtful and I have no self esteem because of it. I also recently figured out im anemic and have iron deficiency. Please tell me if taking the iron supplements will make my face grow more into a healthy 18 year old face? & why is my face so unhealthy looking? My body is fat and I weigh 170 pounds so im not underweight thats for sure.
