Thought I better check back in to tell you how I'm doing. Well I haven't rebounded thank goodness! I'm still taking the Antibiotics and Aciclovir and taking it easy. I went to see my derm nurse on Monday and she said I was doing fantastically well. I've also changed dermatologist as I'm just not gonna get anywhere with this steroid withdrawal business with the one I'm currently with. The lady I've swapped to is much more open minded so fingers crossed we get somewhere!
Tomorrow I go back to make sure I am still on the mend - which I know fine well I am so it's a bit of a pointless appointment. Though, we only made it just to be sure I don't need to extend my sick note for work. It'll be nice to get back to normal as I haven't even left the house this week apart from going to see various doctors.
My skin has been doing incredibly well considering I'm still off the Ciclosporin. I just assume that the antibiotics are helping to keep it at bay. The heat has been awful though and I have been really itchy too but thankfully I haven't completely destroyed myself through scratching, though I have been unable to control myself and am consequently covered in scratches and red patches. My face is rather unscathed though.
I ended up having to take pictures on my phone as for some reason my camera, no matter how the settings were adjusted, made my face look super bright red, but it isn't. The colour is much more of a match with these pictured below.
