Day 99 - High cholesterol



I haven't had any real change with my skin since last month. No peeling, no oilyness, but I have to keep up the face and body moisturising day and night to keep the itching at bay.

I haven't had any new face acne since week 2 or 3, so that has been wonderful. I got a few large pimples/boils on my body though this week, don't know what that is about :redface:

My last blood test showed all my cholesterol levels were too high, above acceptable limits, so I've started a cholesterol-lowering diet and a tiny bit of exercise. I don't know if the Oratane caused it, but I'm working hard to lower it so I can keep going with the Oratane. I have a blood test and GP visit scheduled for mid-January, then the same for my derm mid-February.

On the 6th of January I increase my dosage to 40mg per day. I'm not expecting any noticeable changes.

My lips get quite dry in air conditioning, and I can apply lip balm twice an hour and still have dry and peeling lips.

Merry Christmas everyone, I'll update again after my next blood test.
