The spring has finally come to London!
A change of seasons usually brings me either deterioration or improvement on skin. I have a feeling this spring is the latter!
I am now 18 months into my topical steroid withdrawal.
A lot LESS scaling, peeling, dryness and redness, and absolutely NO swelling and oozing!
It used to be like I can find my flakes everywhere in my flat, but I haven't seen them recently.
People told me that my skin looked much better than last year. In fact, I'm feeling so much better compared to last spring. I'm definitely few steps closer to my full recovery!
My chin, below eyes and neck areas are still the worst parts, although these are also healing gradually. My skin has been pigmented, but still better than crusted bleeding skin. Occasionally cold sores come up on random parts of my face, yet they'll be gone naturally. My skin feels a lot softer and I can definitely say that I am healing steadily.
I'm still holding off any make-up. I think I'm not quite well enough to put any chemicals on my skin yet. Also I started using moisturisers since mid-April, because Dr.Fukaya released his Hyalu-Protect skin lotion (see the translation of Dr. Fukaya's post on Hyaluronic Acid). I was quite comfortable not using any moisturisers but his skin lotion is supposed to be good for skin atrophy and wrinkles, so I'm testing on myself at the moment.

I hope everyone heals better this spring.
