Day 20 yuck,

So heres day 20, clearing up again, but I swear I will get another breakout just cause I sad that. Got a cold sore, not used to those, maybe stress or something? The one on my chin was small then when i was washing my fash it peeled skin and now its a big scab, I hope it goes soon. My next appt is friday and I am getting a higher dose, scary, cause the chapped lips sucks and itchy skin, but I will survive.

      You will survive! If you want to help your cold sore go away faster, you can take an over the counter supplement called L-Lysiene. I may have spelled that wrong. But yeah, the pills are huge. So if by chance you get them, make sure you can swallow big pills.

      My mom is prone to cold sores so she always keeps a bottle in stock.

      I almost got the shots, but ten the nasty ones went down. I am just so ready for all the red marks to go away too. But acne first, scars later. I will keep in touch, you do the same, we are in this together.

      Good luck on your doc appt!

      You look great!!!And yes the chapped lips do suck....Try some petroleum jelly....It helps a-lot...Good luck!!! ^___^

      I have been , like 50 times a day probley. I have been using neosporin lip treatment, and it seems to do wonders, so I reccomend it if you can find it. I hope your progress is well and keep in touch!! Oh and thanks for saying I look great , I feel like its getting better, but I know I just jynxed myself.

      Stress will definately cause cold sores, and your lips are probably more susceptible b/c of the chapping. Zovirax will help with cold sores too, it's a prescription ointment that heals them faster and prevents them when you put it on at the first little tingle.

      Your skin is probably extremely sensitive and thin right now, so scabbing is easy. I found it helped to be super gentle with my skin, cause I had always been one to over-scrub. A really good cleanser is Spectro-Gel Moisturizing for Sensitive Skin. It's like 7 bucks at the drug store. I'm in Canada.....not sure if it's available in the States. For me it is less irritating than even Cetaphil. It's more of a gel so you don't feel greasy either.

      Anyhoo, enough rambling. You look beautiful, and this soon will pass.

      Thanks for the info, I am actually in Japan right now, so I will have to see what tehy have in town. I have Cetaphil, but it seems irritating to me as well. Thanks again :|
