Leila, Thanks for sharing this. It’s hard to lose your face to this isn’t it – even if it is temporary it feels like it will never end. I guess I’m vainer than I ever thought lol My face got so much worse since I’ve started treatment and then it was getting slightly better but now on the Diflucan is making it worse again. I don’t know what else to do except ride out the ugly and hope I get rid of these yeasty beasts before I lose my mind. I’ve been pretty much trapped in the house for 22 weeks now, luckily I work from home, my heart bleeds for you that you had to go to work with this. I do have days that I look okay and even a couple where I look normal but they are still outweighed by my down days. I am going to ask my acupuncturist if he knows of what kinds of Chinese Herbs can do this – if you know the name of it I would much appreciate it. I notice enemas and epsom salt baths help take the swelling out of my face but they don’t help shorten the duration of the flare up. I think I need to get stricter with my diet (sigh) but I appreciate talking to you…no one can quite understand the despair and isolation of this problem, I’ve pretty much dropped off the face of the earth to my friends and I don’t even like to tell people what’s wrong with me I just say I have toxins coming out of my skin, like that’s any better haha It sucks. Hang in there!
