Ice cream
Originally uploaded by PhylB
Léon had a follow-up appointment at Yorkhill today. He has been using an anti-inflammatory cream called crystacide now for about 6 weeks. I can still feel the little fatty lumps under his skin but it does seem slightly improved, if only in so much as he has stopped scratching it, which means he has stopped bursting the skin, and therefore stopped causing it to scab. The consultant says she feels the improvement is significant enough that she wants to continue the crystacide for 6 more months in the hope that it might clear completely, going on the assumption that it is an inflamed patch of infantile acne. She has however warned me that if the inflamed area has calcified, we may be looking at a permanent lump even if it is not visible on the skin's surface.
