Happy to say it didn't affect me like last time. I think when I worked 3 in a row the week before and had my 1st IV glutathione, I too was suffering from the virus. I think it just took its toll on me with trying to heal and all. This time working 3 in a row was still tiring but not nearly so bad. Plus I had my 2nd IV glutathione last week and I feel it helped significantly with my skin and energy. With that said I, even though I felt great the first few days afterwards....little itching and my skin feeling soooooo smooth, I did "break out" yesterday. Not sure I can call it even a semi-flare. It was more the constant hand washing at work irritating the cr*p out of my hands (most nurses have dry cracked hands from this alone), and being on my feet 12 hours a day causing some swelling in the legs. My pictures show little redness or swelling - it's more an irritating little thing than a flare. Also I switched my MSM from powder to crystal form - but I think I ended up with more swelling because the crystal form may not be as strong.....not sure, but going back to the powder form just to play around with it and see if there is a difference.
I also had a few patches develop on my face- I showed the worst side - always my right side - in the pics so you can see what I mean by not knowing if this is a semi-flare or just because of the MSM change. It is so minor yet it's there and I need to let you all know about it! :) My neck on the other hand is done with the itching and redness! It's perfect color skin, but healing from all the scratching I did!
Also wanted to let you know - I will get to all your comments!!! I appreciate you all reading my blog and commenting! I have a ton of private emails as well to get to! But I will get back to all of you! I won't always be able to get back to each of you the same day because of my long work days, BUT I will get back to you!! :)
And here are the pics from this morning....don't mind me in my robe and pj's....going to relax and lounge today!
Face still very clear except for small patches on chin, right cheek and under right eye. Nothing that bothers me, but there and needs to be reported!
Neck dry and scabby....hoping for the scabs to heal with IV #3 this week!
Right arm looking great!
Left leg looking awesome!!! So want to shave!
Right leg just not quite ready for shaving/waxing yet....soon though!!
My right foot and it's on again/off again "flare"
Cracked dry hands!! Not horrible by any means compared to TSW - but working as a nurse can cause this regardless of eczema or TSW!
