INDEPENDENCE: Quick photo update of healing

Happy July 4th! Independence Day was great for me. Gorged on chicken wings, ribs, clams and even some watermelon, a notorious allergen for me. 

In addition, I felt it was a celebration of independence from steroids, moisturizer and all things skin. My skin has continued to be on the mend, with no oozing and all closed skin! Besides the baths I continue to take every 2-3 days, not much thought goes into my affliction. 

Seems my fingers are now starting their healing process as they are a bit more swollen than before, after my feet have finally closed up and the skin continues to become more fine. My left ankle's elephant skin barely remains.

All closed up! and I've been scratching this skin. 

Tiny elephant skin remains on left ankle. Rest of skin still crepey but smooth. 

Starting to see fingers swell up more and turn over skin a lot. I see this as the healing process kicking in. 

Right side not as bad just like feet. Pretty much all healed except index finger! 

Itchy itchy fingers!!

Middle seam crack has healed but tiny ones remain. Patches of pink all over chin and cheeks but getting better week by week. Heal heal heal! 

Almost 14 months and what a ways I have come. Hope you all are enjoying your summers as well. 


  1. I think you are getting close to the end :)

    1. Yes! I'm glad to see you are too. So excited to finally make it this far. Fingers so stiff today but it's quite reminiscent of what my feet went through so hanging in there!

  2. Hi Megan! Love the progress! Any new photos? How are you doing this week?

    1. Hi Ingrid,

      I apologize for the late response. I'm really slacking on this blogging thing. I just uploaded some new pictures in my new blog post you can checkout. I'm doing slightly better each week! How are you?
