Good news! Went to the doctor and she thinks the lip swelling will go on its own, so no need for antibiotics - i just need to walk around with a weird swollen lip for a little while longer =/
Ah mate, serious crap time at the moment!! It's day 17 today, like you I guess, and it's been ok up until now. Ive been sooooooooooooooo thirsty it's stupid, drinking 4 plus litres of water per day, Guess my liver is working it's nuts off. Lips have bled, using blistex moisturiser cream for it, £2.20 from tesco. Done the job so far. Ive had headaches, tiredness, nose bleeds and my pores are on the surface. They don't notice but if I out my tongue behind my lower lip and push it out you can see all of them. Ive has about 20 small spots in total over the past 2.5 weeks. No IB so far. Good luck matey x
Ahh sorry to hear you're having such a hard time with it - we were so positive 16 days ago
I havnt had any nose bleeds but when i blow my nose theres always blood in there so it must be dry and bleeding a little bit. Also insanely thirsty lol, i've been sleeping with a bottle of water next to my bed for when i wake up each morning feeling like i've slept in an oven.
I'd look out for the blistex cream but my lip balm collection is already getting a little ridiculous - Vaseline, nivea hydro care, Dr dans cortibalm, Aquaphor lip repair. I definitely dont need them all but the last 2 were widely recommended on here and the first 2 i bought instore while i waited for the others to be delivered.
The past few days have been fairly normal acne wise - no noticable increase or decrease in the rate at which i get new spots, just same old same old.
Bought some cetaphil since its raved about on here - going to start using it instead of my e45.
Also, i'm going to an 'olympics themed' party tomorrow as a relay team with 3 of my friends and the outfit we're wearing involves a white sleevless vest. Pretty self concious about having my back, chest and shoulders showing since they're covered in acne, scars and red marks but i think im just gonna man up and do it anyway.
