Well... technically, it's a chronic skin condition called eczema.
I've had this condition for a while but it sort of toned down a few years ago. However, just a few months ago (during my examination period) , I had a very bad flare-up, and the inflammation only grew worse. It was to the extent that the angry red rash coated the entirety of my legs, my stomach and my arms. It's like wearing dark red, super itchy tights and arm warmers, except that I'm not able to take them off at all.
Soon after my exams ended, I immediately decided that I needed to rest at home at least until the inflammation goes down. I've moisturised with Cetaphil (why the hell are they so fcking expensive) and used Emu oil as an emollient.
Before long, my dad had a "brilliant" idea of buying a homeopathy ointment that used emu oil. What I didn't expect was that a few days after, my skin broke out in a VERY violent reaction to the ointment, because it was too strong.
That had me bedridden again for a very long while before my skin calmed down again to its former inflamed condition. -.-
Thankfully, I visited the hospital yesterday and I was prescribed some really gentle moisturisers (I'm probably sticking to those and no other brand) , steroid creams, emollients and antihistamines ( THANK GOD FOR ANTIHISTAMINES).
Hopefully within 6 weeks to my next appointment, my inflammation would be gone. (:
I'm thankful to every reader for your well wishes. So far, my skin is less red. It still itches every now and then, but at least I can sleep at night now ^^;
Now, in other news...
I FINALLY GET TO BREATHE IN AIR FROM JAPAN SOON.
My parents have settled on taking me to Hokkaido some time in October. It might be during my school term, but it is only for a short duration, so I will at most miss probably 1 lesson for a few subjects. But it's alright.
IT'S JAPAN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, YO.
I GET TO BREATHE IN THE SAME AIR AS MY HUSBAND-sorry I mean - SAKURAI SHO <3
( okay maybe not the same air because technically he would be in Tokyo and I'd be in Hokkaido. So,... >.> )
My father is a fanatic in photography and has decided to go to Hokkaido for the autumn leaves XD But I'm not really sure there is much to do there. Maybe I'll just chill in the hotel ( like Nino probably will) if there is nothing much to do around the area /:
Any suggestions as to what I can do in Hokkaido? :D
