In my last post, I said I would follow up the next day but didn't bc there was nothing remarkable to report. Finally, though, I think I can say that I see the light at the end of the tunnel. My neck is definitely better than it was and my face is on the mend. Right above my lip is still oozing and I have some painful areas on my chin/top of the neck area but... there is NO oozing on my neck. Thank God!!!
Since starting, I have seen the overall redness decrease and my skin toughen up and not ooze every time I scratched. I'm still super dry and would looooove the soothing feeling of some type of oil but know it wouldn't be worth it. I can just imagine the heat and then the impending itch. Definitely
not worth it. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing more progress!
Unfortunately, my hands aren't doing so well. On top of them being cracked and sandpaper-esque, I've been having major zingers and that pins & needles feeling all day long. I hate the thought of washing my hands. Or my hair. Or using any hair products. Maybe that's why they're so bad... Hmmm. Will have to change my products. I've been thinking about it lately anyway, this will just be incentive.
Sleep still sucks. Technically, it's better than 2 weeks ago. Rather than not being able to fall asleep until 5-6am, I'm now falling asleep around 2-3am and sleeping until 11am-ish, with 2 wake-ups in between, usually around 5 and 9am. And instead of napping with the baby around 12:30, I now get tired for a nap later around 4 or 5pm, if I need a nap at all. But I usually do.
