Month 9 update

5/20 I’m well into my second flare. Lots of scaly and scabby patches, some burning from the raw skin after itch sesh. Looking back on my photos and description, I think I’m similar to how I was month five. More incessant itch, oil where not affected, no real oozing, skin integrity is ok, no real red skin. My face is pretty dry, so is my neck, but the itchiest spots are behind my knees, arm pits, and inner elbow (aka spots I always had most problems with eczema). My legs in general is a mess though, as you will see. But still, not as bad it used to be, and as such I know I’m taking a step closer to heading.

5/23 I think I am finally over the hump! I’ll let you know how it goes. Less itchy and therefore less raw skin.

5/25 I finally took pictures! As you can see I’m very dry. It’s right but I can still function. I’m having a hard time sleeping during normal hours- I eventually get 8 or so hours but it’s broken or it’s during the day. I’m still itchy but less than before. Bottom half pictures coming later.
