Whey, it's a great feeling coming back on here and seeing my last photo update and realising there's a difference to how my skin is now.
I had my Derm appointment after I posted my last update, and she upped my dosage to 60mg after taking a look closely at my face and back. She stated she doesn't think I'll need to be on it for longer than six months, and not need to go any higher.
I currently have no actives, just red marks along my jaw line (none going onto my cheeks like in the pictures above). Back is still bad but hope that clears up soon. I just hope I've now turned a corner with this treatment and finally am seeing improvements, and isn't just a good phase and then bam out of nowhere more appear.
Since upping it to 60mg my skin on my face is just peeling as if I've been sunburnt. Today I couldn't put foundation on (just concealer) because of this. My lips just look awful. Through out the treatment so far I've just had one side that's cracked, but the other one has now too. The skin on my lips which is peeling off is peeling all around the outline of my mouth too. I put on Aquaphor religiously, but it's just not cutting it anymore. Anyone got any other recommendations?
Also my arms and hands look a state from the dermatits, and my heels are still pretty painful.
But despite the side effects, it's totally worth it and am just focusing on the long term rather than the short term.
