My sincerest apologies for not blogging often. However, i havent had heaps to report.
My skin is looking the best it has for 10 years (bar scarring). The oil is gone. My make up lasts all day now without blotting. Its now obvious to me how inflammed and kind of swollen my skin was without me realising before. It just looks so calm and un-red now, which is very good.
The inside of my nose is so dry and sore. The skin on the inside has now taken on the consistency of conflakes. I rubbed vicks vaporub up there (awkward!) a day ago and that relieved it a lot. It was very menthol-y though, and i dont actually think its meant for that kind of use, but oh well, i had to do something.
My lips have cracked at each edge i have been putting lucas paw paw ointment on the cracks and that is quite good. Ive now got a whole range of lip balms to alternate for my poor, dry lips.
Scalp has calmed down, and im not flaking skin every where now, but my eyeballs have dried out. I have started using eyedrops to keep them from feeling like they are burning. My hands are also really dry. Still quite lethargic.
Im quite excited that its almost the end of month 1...only 5 to go. I see the derm in a cuple of weeks for the 6 week check up on my progress.
