Well the rash is going down. It isn’t as bad on my hands and arms. I managed to get some sleep without having to put any cream on last night. Still itchy though this morning on my back mainly, but definitely not as bad as it was.
Now I have a new thing to deal with – as the rash is going my skin is drying up. All my hands are cracking and are sore the skin on my ears as dried up and my lips are like shrivelled leather at the moment. I’m drinking plenty of water (I have to drink three litres a day anyway) to make sure I’m not dehydrating and using hand cream when necessary.
I’m off the Dexamethazone at the moment again so don’t feel as up as I have done over the last few days while on it. At least I am off work now and don’t go back till 4 Jan so it makes it a little easier to deal with at home. I should be back on them again next Thursday, so should have a happy Christmas rather than one where I am feeling down. I don’t think the others would like me crying into my Christmas dinner, it might just put them off their pud!
