Update since I was asked.
Doing pretty good, my legs have gone back to being normal skin again, and it's been that long since I had a good scratch that almost all the scabs have gone, just a few really small ones around the ankles that are holding on. I guess I could pick them off but whats the point, they'll go away when they're ready.
Arms not quite so good, they've had eczema for a lot longer and thus will take longer to heal. They're not red any more, the skin is a lot softer, but you can still see the lines from where they used to be all scaley. The lines are a lot smaller now and I suspect they will go away completely in the next month or so.
I still itch from time to time, but it's manageable, feels just like a normal non-eczema itch and if you scratch it once it goes away, it's also pretty easy to ignore and not scratch at all. Only exception to this that I'm finding is when I first go to bed the itching is quite bad, but instead of scratching I just roll over and lie on the bit that's currently the most irritating.
I am actually getting sleep. I'm a bit worried actually as I seem to be getting too much sleep, I'll sleep for over 12 hours a day if nothing makes me get up. Maybe I'm just catching up, or maybe it's a side effect, who knows.
One thing I find interesting. Previously I was on azathioprine, another immunosupressant, and whilst that eventually stopped working, it did wonders for my asthma and hayfever. The cyclosporin isn't doing much for these so I've been suffering from occasional bouts of hayfever since changing. It makes me wonder if its possible to have a "targeted" immunosupressant, or indeed exactly what is going on.
Going to see the derm again on Tuesday, hopefully the blood test results wont show any negative effects, certainly the blood pressure tests have shown little change.
I'm also putting a lot less bits (possibly none at all) into the bed now. So I'm seeing a lot less grief there, instead its turned into a minor argument about whether the remaining bits are dead skin, normal fluff, or her leaky feather pillow. Whatever, they're really easy to remove now, no more doing multiple passes with the dustpan and brush and then a pass with the lint brush
