Sirpreis- Same happened to me! But I guess I just wanted to actually see the progress right before my eyes, I was quite skeptical of the medication and I figured if Im constantly moisturizing (suppressing those crusts) how am I gong to be able to actually see if its actually working. So I went cold turkey with the moisturizers just because I had to see for myself what this medication was going to do. I was always worried about infections well, always! But I made sure to never let anything touch them so I could prevent infection as much as possible, during that time I never even left the house. I moved back in with my mom for three months, had to quit my job, defer on my student loans. It was tough, but well worth it. I am now back on my feet, in my own apartment again, and getting back out on the workforce(: I am certain using moisture while on the medication will be just fine. I myself just needed to see results detail by detail.
