" Yes! That's a good sign if they are turning dark red and kind of flattening out. At least from my experience. How are your headaches and pain? Better? Once the blisters began to heal, I did get some itchiness that drove me crazy for a short period of time. If that happens, just know it doesn't last. (Again, that was my experience. I don't know about yours...) I found that Lanacane worked as good as anything. I think you are doing really well, and things are on the mend for you. Glad to hear it... "

" yep, they are getting better.....do not pick....i don't care if they are flapping in the breeze.....do not pick.

i alway have my "red spot" i think it actually a scar from my first and worst breakout, when i thought i had been bitten by a brown recluse spider!! "
