I can say that I dont think I see improvement because I would just know if I was improving. I mean I've had this for 9 months now, and obsess over it everyday. I would know if they were improving, believe me.
They are still red as hell and they seem more raw and irritated than ever. If I was seeing improvement then they wouldnt be.
At least when I was leaving them alone they werent raw and irritated. And I dont think I will have to start all over again, because I havent dont as much damage over the past 2 weeks as I did in the previous 5-6 months.
Like i said when I left them alone again last week, they looked like they did when I stopped a few weeks ago. The crusts were clearer and thinner.
