Yeah well many derms seem against oral immunosuppressants.

I was surprised when my derm was against it now, considering he really talked me and my parents into trying it before. Which just shows you how intense the side effects can be. Today he said to me "unless it is absolutely necessary, in which you cannot live with the condition" he wouldnt prescribe a medication like Cyclosporine. Which makes sense because thats exactly where I was a year ago when he advised me to take it.

Oh well. My lips have been improving slowly over time so hopefully that continues, and this Prednisone should help. Also Im going to make sure I get at least an hour or so of sun a day.
