I’m happy to announce that my skin is still looking good. With the change of season, I did have a couple of weeks where they were itchy and red but that is going down.

I’m still taking the herbs, I’m down to half a sachet twice a day and hopefully I will be able to get that down to half a sachet per day.

I’ve found that Aveeno is wonderful, I’ve been using it for a while now and it doesn’t aggravate my skin, it leaves it feeling soft and there is no slimy/greasy feeling once it’s been applied. It is most expensive than others on the market, but I just use it on my hands so it lasts longer.

I havent been having anymore acupuncture – due to finances – and I did find that the skin rash flared up a lot in the first couple of weeks of me stopping. My doctor, George, says that the acupuncture cannot cure it – but it can help it flair up a little less. Ideally, I need to find what’s triggering it but I’ve still had no luck with that. My only idea is that it’s stressed/worry induced.

25 Jun

I made it through last night in fact I slept pretty well and only had a bit of rubbing. Today has been hard as it’s been really hot, so i’ve been trying to keep myself cool.

I have a few blisters on my right hand, which is disappointing – I was hoping they’d be gone this week. I had a bit of an itchy patch when I got home after work, I tried really hard not to break the skin but I think I have in some small areas. It was all too much and I wasn’t strong enough not to scratch. Sometimes I justify it to myself – like when you’re trying not to eat cakes, you’ve gone a whole day without one so you deserve one small one right? Well, its like that with the scratching. Except it’s really bad!

You can see the improvements to my thumb from the last image a couple of weeks ago.

I’ve also got another hand cream (because the store was out of simple) called Aveeno. They have an intensive dry range, which I might give a go after this one. It’s quite nice on my skin, but it always feel nice when you try something new.

Well, its off to the doctors tomorrow – we’ll see what he says and what new combination I get!
