Rapunzel's skin has an ebb and flow. Some days are better than others. She's been having some better days lately. We're not sure what the reason is. Is it from the steroid shot she was (without my knowledge) given during her oral surgery? Is it from the absence of dairy in her diet? Is it because we've been super vigilant about her skin care lately? Is it the dead sea salt soaks we've incorporated into her regimen? Is it the air purifier and humidifier we've added to her room? Is it a combination of any/all of these things? Probably. We don't know exactly what is the cause of her improvement, but we'll take it!
It's hard to not get our hopes up when she starts having good episodes like this. I know she'll still get flares, but I always hope that the good days will start outnumbering the bad ones!
I also just want to make note that it's not just her hands that are flared. That's just what I chose to take comparison pics of this time.
