elesiom wow dude, how did you manage to leave the scabs on for so long? im guessing those are at least 4 week old scabs maybe even 6 weeks? whats the exact length of those scabs? i can tell they didnt heal which must have been really frustrating, and i bet they were really inflamed afterwards. ive only tried that a few times the longest i went was 3 1/2 weeks but they didnt get that bad, but close. i couldnt even leave the house, answer the door or speak on the phone. eating was ridiculous and so was showering.
