Feeling discouraged today. My skin is just so dry and inflamed. A non-derm doctor just saw me (socially) and said I look like I have eczema and should stop the ZZ. I don't know what to do. Is this normal within the 5-7 weeks phase? Checking Gabranth's experience, it looks like he had a rough patch in the 45-ish day range. I started 50 days ago, minus skipping a few days, so I'm probably in that phase now. Unfortunately I scheduled to have some family photos taken (ghastly idea, I know) which I need to get done before school starts. I had hoped to be presentable after 7 weeks of ZZ but I'm just not sure where this is going.
