Here we are again.
Period should be coming soon. I actually had a relatively minor 2-day flare (June 11-12) this week. My cheeks looked like the April 11, 2013 picture I posted a few entries back but wayyy less severe. It was still dry, flaky, sometimes itchy and bumpy but it all disappeared within a span of 48 hours. I usually experience a flare or a fluctuation in TSW symptoms exactly a week before I start menstruating.
On another note, my body is definitely experiencing shorter and less intense flares as each month passes. Itching doesn’t really occur anymore and even if it does it is bearable. The 2-day flare only impacted my face and left flexor (inside elbow – wrist area?). Both parts are dry and flaky as I type this post but I don’t feel uncomfortable at all. Everywhere else is good. It is also lovely to see that the pigmentation on my right arm, back and legs have pretty much faded.
All is good… for now.
