Skin & eye light sensitivity

For 30 years my eyes were so sensitive that when I opened my front door I would squint my eyes to slits at the indirect sunlight. For about 20 years my skin would not tan. I recently spent a day at outdoor hot mineral springs. I didn't need sunglasses or a hat. My skin has started tanning again. Alas, I have white spots. I guess those are my dapples to go with my Rudolph's red nose. My hands aren't cartoon red like they used to be, but they are still red. If I press a fingertip into the red skin, it blanches for a couple of seconds.

Hi Janice,I actually tan

Hi Janice,

I actually tan pretty well now too, much more like when I was a kid, instead of burning and peeling and remaining white (if not red!) like before.  Many of the odd white spots that wouldn't tan at all also seem to be gone for me too, and many freckles, moles and other odd dark spots are also gone or going.   I can't tell you how many odd skin tags, odd spots, etc have also disappeaed.     It's truly amazing, isn't it?

I'm still a work in progress of course.   I figure it took me years to get this way, so why would I expect to be "perfect" again in a shorter amount of time.  By the time I'm 90 though, I'm going to be awfully handsome! Laughing

Continued great luck!   So glad to hear you are doing better!

Janice, I realized when I saw your remark that my "worms" are completely gone, too! As pretty as they were, I don't miss them. Right now I am taking a good look - from my side - and also realize that my many floaters are also gone. They may be back, but for the moment....They have been around for decades. All this is encouraging. I must remember to tell my ophthalmologist.

I've been on CAPi 2 and one

I've been on CAPi 2 and one half years. I think I don't have the porphyrins in my eyes like I used to. When I was on CAP about a year I had big, clear chrystalline worms in my vision. They weren't floaters. I think the metronidazolei was working on something in the optic nerve or brain.

Way to go Janice, you must be feeling well pleased with yourself. What are a few white spots between friends?

Hopefully the rest will follow and Rudolph will have to find someone else to play with.
