After yesterday's excitement at the GP's and just a couple of applications of the new occlusive emollient treatment, the outward appearance of the affected parts is already improving. The hard, crusty 'scales' are softening and are beginning to shed. The now exposed scalp looks (to this layman and his wife) pink and healthy. Soreness and itching is much reduced. So far so good.
The now-daily photos will continue and today's exciting episode can be found in the usual place.
