What a week from hell. Two days ago we upped the dosage from 20mg to 40mg. First I should start by saying that my son isn't feeling well. I had to pick him up early on Thursday and he stayed home on Friday. If you read the entry before this one, you know all about the flare up. Basically upon vomiting, one of the cysts on his face instantly filled with fluid and he wound up with a marble under his skin. It was quite scary. We saw the doctor this morning and he gave him some cortisone to settle it down.
Today he stayed home from school. He took his first bleach bath to try per his doctor's instructions. He also started a probiotic.
The worst is that he is in so much pain. He also has a huge flareup on his shoulder and he has been in tears tonight. I simply can't keep him home from school any more. He is falling behind.
Today is day 28. I fell like we just started treatment and it is already so bad. I am very afraid as to how much worse it's going to get before it is better. His skin and lips are very dry. He is clearly upset and I am worried about him.
