Skin in the morning skin feels smooth but kind of tight. I guess in need of moisturising. Nothing I've ever felt before, it's very strange. I think I may still have some swelling as my legs tend to still ache in the afternoon if I'm on my feet too much. My frustration this month is hives still. If I itch I get hives and they get real itchy. At the moment the itch is mainly on the inner thighs and sometimes on the creases of my elbows. Nothing a little Aloe Vera Gel won't fix though.
The above pictures are of my inner thighs and their progress. I certainly don't miss those purple legs. The pain that came with it, I just can't describe. Thank god that's over. Oh and this month I tried to have a shower. EPIC FAIL! It felt strange but good at the same time. But certainly didn't get me through a whole day as comfortable as a morning bath did. And my night time cream routine is no longer except on this day I needed it before bed. So the journey continues with a daily morning bath. Seven months of bathing is beginning to feel like a never ending nightmare but I will slog on as I'm steroid free and seeing skin on myself that I haven't seen in a very long time :)
Me at seven months looking pretty normal with a nice skin colour..I'm hoping by the summer December 2013 I will be completely healed all going well. Fingers crossed xoxo
