Today is day 29 (in the big brother house ... sorry couldn't resist!!).
So update, I spoke to Dermatology yesterday and said my face was going absolutely CRAZY breaking out, and they have decided to keep me on the steroids for another three weeks - 10mg a day. That should take me up to when I see the dermatologist again for my 2 month check, and no doubt he will have words as he doesn't particularly like me being on them.
Back to my face, it is absolutely disgusting. I had a nurse come in this morning to where I work and said 'what's wrong with your face - it looks sore', to which I burst into tears! Bless her, she was only asking but I thought I'd done a good job at covering the mountains up, until that point!! She's since bought chocolate in to try and cheer me up!!
So as for a spot count, I have two beasts right on the end of my nose (yes another one has popped up as the first must have been lonely), a mahusive one just underneath my nose which is just a big red, sore bump, a cluster of five on the left side of my nose which are all really scabby, a mahusive one on my left cheek which looks like I've had far too much botox in one area, two big red lumps on the left side of my hairline, two on my forehead and I've lost count at the big one's on my chin, as it looks like a golf range. I think its safe to say this is the initial breakout, I just hope it doesn't get any worse. The spots are bloody killing - very sore and they take ages to heal. I think that could be the Roaccutane though, as my skin looks like tissue and is very frail. I'm literally just putting moisturiser on now after cleansing/toning, as I don't want to irritate them any more, but I'm scared I'm feeding my face. It is absolutely devastating me at the moment and I'm very very down. I just hope this process wraps up soon but time seems to be going soooooooooo slow and each day brings another new friend to my face . I'm off to London this weekend and was hoping it would be a little better, but fat chance of that! Ah well, I guess it'll be head down and hair in the face. One day I am hoping to be able to hold my head high again, and be proud of what I look like, but that seems like its a long way off right now.
