16 Months Protopic Withdrawal

Things have been going really well for months 15 and now 16. My skin continues to heal. My skin can hold moisture. I apply moisturizer in the morning and then can get through all day without need to apply anymore. I hardly have any flaky skin. So no need to vacuum my bed out anymore. No oozing in the last two months. My legs are probably the worst, still scabby but way less than they were. They are healing slowly. I was getting hives on my arms in the mornings but even that in the last week or two has seemed to have gotten better. I sleep great. I have hardly any itching. Nothing like the hour long sessions I used to have. I do still scratch when I get too warm or sweaty, but my skin is strong. My skin is not red anymore. My neck is still a bit splotchy, which you can see below, but nothing like before. To those that do not know what I have been through I look normal! The skin still feels a little tight at night when turning my neck, but I can still do it easily, and I believe that will continue to heal. The splits on my hands have closed up. They do still get some bump or hives, I think its food related, but they are waaaaaay better than they were.

My arms still has some bumps, but this picture looks worse than my skin does in person.

I am doing really well right now. I am just trying to live my normal life and enjoy it. I do always have in the back of my mind a worry about flaring up again. I worry what the summer will bring next year, but I have to try not to worry.  I hope you take out of this that we all will heal. Be positive and keep your faith. Don’t give in no matter how hard it gets. If you have any questions, please ask. All the best for you all in 2015!
