I noticed that although my P is fading all over, it's going faster higher up, chest, arms etc, and slower on my legs. I mentioned this to the clinic nurse and she said that's the way it usually goes.

It spreads out before it goes away

Hi James. Mine doesn't spread when it starts to fade. It just goes. Maybe I'm getting a spot somewhere else I don't know about? I better go check as my P is looking soft and flat on my ankles.
Treat the new spots as quick as possible. Don't give it a chance to 'set' if you know what I mean? You already have long terms spots and you know how to deal with them. I usually concentrate more on the new spots than the long terms ones. I treat them 3-4 times a day which is why they're gone within a couple of days. Good luck and I do hope it doesn't spread any further. Keep us posted okay:)

Michelle, mine isn't spreading either, I have full body coverage, I just meant it's not fading at a uniform rate, the top half is fading quicker than the bottom half, although it is all fading to one degree or another. The derm nurse told me this is normal though.

Ooooh I see James. I have to say that mine is the same. When I get a spot on my face, it fades way quicker (within a week) than the ones on my legs. I wonder if it has something to do with the blood flow? I know it sounds ridiculous but I've been wondering about this.

Yes I'm curious too. Il ask when I'm there tomorrow. They always seem to be in a rush but I'll try to find out tomorrow.

Sometimes it gets worse before it gets better,I got a patch on my belt line, been there for 4 months or more i think now?,i been watching it grow bigger, sad or what lol ,I have noticed now that its gone clear in the center which i have seen a lot in all my decades with it, so this one could surprise me and disappear like magic :) i have spots on my chest belly etc is a mixture of red spots and whitish ones that are trying to heal up, I shall see, My toxin portal patch can feel a bit sore at moment, its nothing compared to you having full coverage James, i am sorry about this , Hope you get some good help and luck James

I'm in a better place right now than I have been for a while. Its still there, but definately fading. I get the occasional itch but nothing compared to what it was. Big test for me was putting clean bedding on and at the end of a week, no blood on the sheet. I almost cried when I realised that. So all in all, going well. No idea how long it will stay away but fingers crossed I'll get a good run.

Good , I am glad with your positive outlook for the future now James , I think enjoy the heal up and dont look ahead yet, thats great :)

That is wonderful news James. I'm really happy for you and I know how you feel. When my P disappeared I stopped worrying about "how long will it stay away...", I focused more about getting it better. I was excited and couldn't wait to see better results. Sometimes I got an extra spot but that didn't throw me back into depression, I just kept going and stayed positive. James, like you said, you're in a better place now. Looking back at how depressed you were a couple of months ago and seeing what you wrote here is wonderful and I can see how positive you are. Well done! Keep it up and I have my fingers crossed for you. Remember, live for the day and be happy as tomorrow may never come. :)
