So, it has officially been one month. Wow, it is hard to believe. Overall, it has been entirely easy, side effects are manageable and I would do it again. Ask me how I feel in another 30 days!
Side-effects update...My facial skin is okay-looking, dry and somewhat flaky. I have what seems like hundreds of the tiniest blackheads imaginable. All of the gunk is coming out. No active pimples. No whiteheads. I go to the doctor in two days for blood work results. Body skin is fine, no eczema, only a little itchiness. My scalp itches a little, but not bad. Lips remain chapped and I am burning through Chapstick and Aquaphor. I experience eye dryness irregularly. Joint aches come and go, but nothing serious.
My husband, who is about one week behind me, still has chapped lips and the non-itchy, red dot rash on his hands. He thinks the rash is getting a little better. He has had no other side effects during his three weeks on Claravis.
I will update on Friday after my doctor's appointment and blood work review.
