Well i had this for about 5 months before I began leaving them alone. I have been leaving them alone for a little over a month. They are still crusting a lot and look pretty bad, but im doing a good job of keeping the crusts on and leaving them alone. They will crust in one big crust then a part of that crust may fall off, and the other part will remain. Then the portion that fell off will "recrust" so it will almost look like multiple layers. It looks somewhat like that guy Daniel Miller's, but not nearly as bad. I feel for him. But yeah keep it touch and let me know how it goes with you. I assume you will heal a bit faster than me since you caught it earlier. No offense to some of these people but I dont know how they waited years until they started looking for solutions.
