My skin is the best it has been in 20 plus years! no more flakes, no more itch, no more gross!!! Still a long way to go!! its been two months now and everything is calm. I am going to keep going although I know there is not a cure for P...I truly believe that if I continue at this rate my P will go away because each day I notice the P shrinking more and more. LOVE MY NEW LIFESTYLE!!!
