I'm officiallly off the prednisone now, which is a good thing since that drug can cause a myriad of problems too. I got a couple of cysts within the last week. One right at the base of my chin and one at the corner of my mouth. They seem to be healing/reducing in size much quicker than before-maybe since the prednisone is still in my system... overall, my skin looks fabulous. I honestly can say it has been years since I could apply such little makeup. Still trying to be realistic but this sure feels good right now!
I am not sure if I mentioned that I used a 2 part olive oil to 1 part apple cider vinegar treatment on my hair. I massaged it in and then left it in a shower cap for 30 minutes or so and shampooed at ususal. Miracle! NO scalp dryness and super soft and shiny hair again.
I am still losing hair but not as much as before so perhaps the decrease in dosage aided with that. However, it did become necesssary for me to purchase a wig. I was so freaked out about it but neither my hairdresser (from a upscale salon) nor my best friend could tell! I ordered "my" shade and cut and then had my hairdresser texturize it and put the finishing touches on it. I use mu own bangs etc and it does look good. Feels wierd though.
Still no super dryness anywhere. I am still using aquaphor and Mimyx.
