It’s strange sometimes that as your skin gets better it goes through a period of being sore. My legs are looking better, there are no thick patches of scale. They are at the point though where they are peeling almost like sunburn. It is that thin skin peel, like you could just peel the whole shin to reveal new skin underneath. The itching is just bearable but because it’s basically fresh skin, it is very tender so scratching quickly breaks the skin.
So after a big scratch earlier today I have had to refrain from treatment until tonight. Even after waiting for the skin to dry and heal the broken patches it is very sore to treat. Five minutes ago my legs felt fine, I am now sat here with very sore legs as the dovobet soaks in. It annoys the hell out of me that while my skin looks better than it has done for months, there is no let up from the pain, the soreness or the plain uncomfortable feeling of sticky, greasy skin.
I can still laugh though as I sit here and think about the new life I am about to start. I am leaving the world of accounts behind to start a new career as a chef. I put that much grease on my skin, I bet I would make a tasty roast dinner. Oh and for those that say drinking alcohol doesn’t help my condition, I will ponder in that as I drink this glass of red. Cheers all and goodnight.
