So it's been yet another week!
If you're keeping up with my journey then you'll know that I recently went back to my 80mg a day. So far, it's worked fabulously. My skin has cleared up from my acne that I had before. There is still some there but not... a whole lot. My neck has majorly improved. I have some pictures in my album that aren't uploading at this exact moment but keep an eye out!
Unfortunately, the paronychia has also returned. I've been trying to take my 2, 40mg pills as far apart as possible so as not to overwhelm my body with the medication. My fingers and toes also aren't infected looking or red at all, they're just a little puffed up and hurt a bit. It's nowhere near as bad as last time and I have my fingers crossed that it stays that way.
During this past week, my face started peeling a whole lot and in the beginning of the week it was just in patches. So, a circular piece of skin would pop up, with the edges starting first, and the very middle holding on for dear life to my face. That lasted about 4 days and now my skin is coming off in rolls whenever I touch it. Putting on lotion/moisturizer and rubbing it around on my face causes my skin to slip right off and form little bunches, or rolls of dry skin. But my skin feels like it's new skin all the time; that soft, slightly moisturized feeling.
I've been switching between Gold Bond Healing Lotion and the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer lately. The clinique is good for the day time when you don't want your face to look like it's seeping oil and the Gold Bond is good for overnight. I've just gotten lucky that they aren't turning my face red (knock on wood).
Well, that's all for this week. I hope this progress continues!
Until next week!
