The recovery process is going great guns, the redness of my skin looks worse in the video so you can imagine how happy I am to be feeling good and looking somewhat normal. It's quite hard watching myself on video, particularly after the hairloss is making me look like my grandfather!!
Nonetheless, the red skin recovery diary rolls on, every day better than the last. Thank god for finding ITSAN.org, the information I needed and the people to support me through. I can't thank Jake & Liz enough for their tireless support and motivation.
Hope you are all gearing up for a brilliant weekend.
I'm was 28 years old and had been recommended topical Cortisone by dermatologists since I was 13, because of this my skin became persistently red across my face, arms and neck.
The solution is to cut the cortisone completely, but this process takes between 9 months to 4 years to recover from and came with many horrific side affects.
The video above explains exactly what has caused the red skin, swelling and many other terrible symptoms that I've battled for the last 10 years. You can view all the posts on the blog by using the blog archive further down the page.
