Week 5 Red Skin Flare Up

On Wednesday I had a very stressful day at work, I could feel myself deteriorating from midday and by the time I got home I was very uncomfortable, I knew this was the start of a flare up,my chest was red and tender, itchy and sore. The next day was worse, my chest became weepy, only a very thin layer of skin remained on my upper chest and I could feel it pulling away from my body as I lay under warm blankets. For 4 days I did absolutely nothing but lay on the couch. Splits in my skin; underarms, elbows, heels and chest made moving uncomfortable and all the areas that were non-weepy were creating massive amounts of dry hard skin. Today is Monday morning, and whilst I'm improved to the point where I m not weepy, I'm still uncomfortable, itchy and not wanting to go into the office. My hands are bright red, that continues all the way up my arms. My face is very red, yet at least smooth (no dry peeling bits). Overall I look like I'm on fire... it's not a good look
