Day 11

It's amazing how big of a difference one day can make on this medicine.  Side effects can pop or or change in no time!

My scalp has become dry, itchy and flaky!  Last night, I purchased Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque and left it in for a couple of hours.  Felt great and it does seem to have helped as I'm not as itchy/flaky today.  Finding the right stuff to combat this side effect may be trial and error. It may need to be a combo of less hair washing, more moisturizing conditioners, deep conditioners a couple of times/week, anti-dandruff shampoo.  Earlier today at Target, I saw THIS: Shea Moisture Purification Masque (African Black Soap and specific for dry itchy scalp!) and I sort of wish I had seen it first, but I'll try it after I finish up what I bought. 

My whole body feels itchy but moisturizing is helping keep the eczema rashes at bay.  Trying to make it a relaxing ritual twice a day so it doesn't start feeling like a pain to do...

Lips are peeling some but are not uncomfortable at this point.  And still able to wear my contacts!

I saw some more healing of the cystic jawline acne overnight!  Still breaking out but those breakouts seem to heal more quickly and aren't as painful as normal. 

Still feeling good about the overall success thus far :)


  1. How are you doing today? I went to derm yesterday to have a cyst injected. Next week is my brother's wedding and I didn't want to look bad. It's already going down. My face overall seems better and I just have dry lips and very thirsty. Maria

  2. Hi Maria! I'm doing well overall. I'm glad you are seeing improvement! Have fun at the wedding :)

  3. Hang in there, don't let it whip you.........
