Moisturizer withdrawal: day 15 (tsw day 81) - pictures!!!

Here are pics of the last 2 weeks... Let me preface this by saying looks can be deceiving because my skin always LOOKS best after I scratch off all the dead skin and then let it dry out because then it is even. Of course, that is not the case and it is actually raw and painful. Ex: day 1 pic looks not so bad but let me tell you, it was!!!

Day 1 - literally dripping ooze

Day 2 - drying out and scabbing (sorry for poor quality, can't always get a decent pic on the iphone)

Day 3 - you'll notice alot of change throughout one day

Day 4

Day 5 - the brown dots are dried blood 

Day 6

Day 7

 See how nicely it dries up?! Like an itch attack never happened.... grrrr I hate you tsw

 Day 8

Day 9

Day 10

Gotta get cuddles in when I can :) Notice the icepack on my neck. That is a permanent fixture.

Whose cute little hands are those?!

Day 11

Day 12 

Day 13

Day 14

Day 15 - Today! Unfortunately I am worse today. Once my skin started getting better, I started eating worse thinking I was out of the woods. Silly girl!

Hopefully this will be my last week of pain and discomfort. If anyone else has gone through this, how long did it take you? Would love to hear your thoughts.


  1. How's it going for you? :)


    1. Hey Jo...finally updated the blog. Things are slowly getting better. VERY slowly lol. How about you, are you still super dry?

  2. Hi,
    I'm gonna update on Friday - my 3 months anniversary! But yeah, still very dry but improving! Still itchy.... But I guess this will go away later, I just wish it was already gone ;)
