I finally had C take some pictures of me. Pictures on the right are from me today. Haven’t taken a shower in over 24 hours, no vaseline, just a little bit of The Home Apothecary Lemongrass balm on my arms.
My chest.. man that thing oozed, scaled, and itched so bad. Still have a few little very small eczemateous areas on the sides of my chest. But overall, doing MUCH MUCH MUCH better. Doesn’t even bother me.
This is the infamous red sleeve at about 2 months. I remember that this is one of the first really bad days I had in withdrawal. My inner arms aren’t perfect. I still have a few spots that itch. Looks a lot like my “original eczema” and I wonder if this is just that.
The picture on the left is from when my legs were oozing and crusting over. You can see how swollen and crusty they are here. This was about 2-3 months into withdrawal. My lower legs get dry after swimming in the ocean, but otherwise, are completely normal!
