  1. My log/blog/epitath

    Woke up this morning and my spot had improved to a degree. Very, very, very little pain to it now and feels a tiny bit smaller. Still a massive eyesore, but this is a step in the right direction. Doesn't quite feel dead yet, but the skin over it is dry and flaky now, so that usually indicates it's on the way down. It's not formed a head either, so that should help reduce the healing time too. Maybe tomorrow it'll look better yet.

    Checked my spot in the mirror just after my last post and, sure enough, it's not a pleasant one. Looks a bit like a papule with redness around it - much like an insect bite. I imagine that it'll get a head at some point. I'll try taking some ibuprofen before bed tonight to see if I can take the edge off it, but I don't think that'll do much to help. Kinda feels like my skin has kinda slipped a little bit in the last month. Not really sure what to do or think though. It's not disastrous, but there's that annoying feeling of always having 'something' on my face to feel self conscious of. It could be worse, but it could be better.

    That last spot I spoke about gradually healed and, two weeks on, it's just a slight red mark. Despite feeling good about my skin when I woke up this morning, I've just found a spot to the left of my nose. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet as I'm out and about, but it's medium sized and is a little painful. Spots on the left hand side of my face barely ever happen and when they do they're not terrible. This one feels like it may be working its way up to forming a head. I had a spot in a similar position six weeks ago and it disappeared pretty quickly. Unfortunately it's impossible to judge exactly how a spot will pan out and, for now, I've got an eyesore on my face. Again, it doesn't feel like I'm about to start suffering major breakouts but after my last bad spot from two weeks ago, I really don't want another one so soon. I wanted a month's break at least. So, I'm just going to have to wait and see what happens with my new lesion. Maybe it'll go down overnight. In the meantime, I'm going to try and find a mirror I can look into and see what I've got lurking on my face.

    Woke up this morning and found that a little scab had formed over the top of my latest spot, it was also very painful to the touch. I peeled the scab off and underneath there was a little globule of pus staring back at me, so I gave the spot a squeeze and quite a bit of liquidy pus oozed out. Since then, the spot has gone down a little bit and all the pain has disappeared. Looks like the spot is dying now, but it certainly doesn't look pretty. There's still a red lump there and it's going to take several days to go down fully. And then there's the red mark that it'll almost definitely leave. I'm going to try a hot compress on it later when I'm in the shower, so hopefully this will help with the healing process in some small way. Thankfully, it's a one-off spot and I don't even have any other tiny spots popping up at the minute, but it's still nasty looking. I can see it when I look in mirrors even from a few metres away! Just got to pray that it disappears pretty sharpish! Again, I'll have a better idea of its progress after a night's sleep, so I'll have to wait and see if it's changed much when I look in the mirror tomorrow morning...

    My skin's not been too bad since my last update, but had a bit of a weird spot come up this week. Woke up Wednesday morning with a little red patch along the top of my right cheek which was fairly flat and not painful. I assumed it would go down, but the next morning it had swollen up a bit and by the end of the day I could see the start of a head beneath the surface. Woke up today and the head was a little bit bigger and continued to mature throughout the day. After using a hot compress on it, it seemed ready to pop so I went ahead and squeezed. Now, I was expecting it to explode with pus, but only a tiny amount came out and it was that kind of semi-solid pus. A little bit of blood came out too and that's now pooled into a little scab. Size wise, it hasn't really changed, but it may be a tiny, tiny bit smaller. Still very painful to the touch though. It's an eyesore, but I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens overnight. I'm heading to bed now, so night night!
