I am still going through flaking stages with my face, neck, arms, legs and scalp. It’s not fun at all but it’s actually kind of funny to be able to tell people who mess with me jokingly, that if they do not stop I will flake on them! I mean, I can literally do just that! 😀 I am actually getting used to this condition although it is a horrible one to go through. I know that each day that passes is another day closer to healing, so I had to get my mind right about this journey, which is not an easy thing to do. The skin discoloration (Red Skin Syndrome) is the hardest part to look at. I sincerely look like someone beat my body with a baseball bat, especially my thighs and parts of my legs.
I do look better than I did 4 months ago though, which is cool, but man! I honestly would not wish this on my worst enemy. I have to say though that I am getting pretty sick and tired of waking up to skin flakes on my pillow and bed sheets. I know it’s all a part of the healing process as my skin is trying it’s hardest to get itself together, but come on! I need a flake free day soon.
What I have been doing is moisturizing during the day and letting myself dry out over night. I have also been drying myself out during the weekends (been having flares these past 3 weekends for some reason as well) but will moisturize right before I need to go out somewhere. I read that it’s actually good not to moisturize but I prefer to do it like I’m doing it. I just cannot see myself walking around looking dry, flaky, tight and miserable.
