Day 35

Sooo... the prednisone seems to be working wonders.

It is no joke when I say that my face has not been this blemish free in yeeeeaarrrrsss. I have felt absolutely wonderful the past few days, and am trying to remember to remain positive no matter what tomorrow may bring.

This all takes time, and patience is definitely a virtue. I know it will pay off.

Script cream has really helped my rash, although I have to keep reapplying, or else it will slowly come back... I don't think the cold weather is helping too much.

We must be very close in our journeys. I had a problem with inflammation and the derm prescribed predinose--what a wonder to be clear-I had the exact same experience!! I only wish it would last!! On the flip side, my hair loss is significant. Are you having trouble with that? The derm also decreased my does to 40mg every other day in hopes to deter so much loss. I am so bummed that if this amount of hair loss continues, I'll have no choice but to abandon treatment.

Good morning!Yes, our experiences sound very similar. As far as the hair loss... no I haven't experienced that, I'm sorry to hear that you have. I know that when I had the few days of rectal bleeding, I started freaking out. Thankfully I had my derm appt a few days later, so that I was able to curb some of my anxiety, and she gave me some tips on how to keep that from happening, and it hasn't since. But I know your fear of abandoning treatment, I actually cried that evening, I was so afraid that she would take me off. Just please remember to stay completely honest with your derm, they are definitely out to help you, and i'm sure will do whatever it takes to keep you on the treatment while preserving your health.I pray every day that I continue to have a smooth journey, and I will do the same for you.Do you mind me asking how old you are? I appreciate your interest in my journey, and I look forward to hearing about yours. Keep the faith :-
