First let me explain what I feel has give me back my lips after 14+ years of exfoliative cheilitis- then you can go on to read my story down below. Believe me when I say I've read every post on here, and almost the first 20 pages of the Internet about this condition.
I tried these all at once and therefore I'm not sure which one was most effective. I am quite negative about finding a cure for the condition and it would infuriate me every time someone would say "use vasoline!" "drink more water"!
Wow thank you for that groundbreaking advice!!
Here is what I did over a 3 day period (YES 3 DAYS! ) and for some reason a miracle happened and I'm seeing a DRASTIC improvement in my lips.
Vertical lines start to appear in the lips when you are improving. I will follow up on my progress in a week or two.
1. I read in one thread to put a capsule of borage oil on the stomach at night so that was the first part of my routine. This has to do with absorbing fatty acids?
2. I've read this condition could be linked with yeast. The first night I took 2 x 90-billion probiotic capsules, the second night 4 x 90-billion capsules and I will continue with a normal amount in a week.
3. & 4. I've read Daniel Millers Blog and watched his videos- his method involved exfoliating smothering the lips with Aquaphor.
This is a "moisture healing method" Thought this was total bull but I still wanted to try everything and I have to say I really think is why my lips improved. My method is a bit easier. In the morning I exfoliated the F out of my lips with the scrub from Victoria Secret . You can use any scrub- in fact try a more natural one with less chemicals. After you scrub for a minute- make sure you use both your finger and lips to exfoliate, then rinse with water.
Then- apply a HEAVY HEAVY layer of a great lip balm. I put so much on my lips the skin was not even visible.
Then leave it and let it absorb- go on about your day. Do the same exact thing before bed. I use Nuxe- it feels like butter heaven.
His method involves putting on Aqauphor every 30 mins- but aint nobody got time for that!
5. I was eating low- sugar. Smoothies, salads, and drinking about 20 oz of bone broth at night. Stayed away from eating actual meat. Basically a vegan diet with a bit of eggs and bone broth. I also was sick and had not had sip of alcohol for 7 days. I drank coffee because I'll never give that up. I know diet plays an important role but I can hardly imagine my diet made an improvement in just 3 days. Who knows. Just try it.
Background info ( you don't have to read this if you got what you needed )
My health info:
Chronic yeast infections and yeast skin outbreaks, Chornic IBS- constipation, easily got UTIS, issues with my monthly cycle and pms pain, migraines, and food sensitivities.
Took Accutane at age 13 for on and off 4 years.
I totally abused antibiotics. Also, I'm extremely stressed ALL THE TIME and can't get that under control.
These are things I've tried:
Comprehensive Stool Analysis to check for parasites/ yeast
Hormone Metabolite Assessment
Comp. Metabolic Panel
Liver, Kidney, Inflammation, Thyroid tests
Vitamin Deficiency Test- I was lacking B12, Pantothenate, Biotin, and Choline.
Saw one of the BEST gastroenterologist in country for digestion.- he told me to eat crackers and buy fiber supplements- What a joke.
Every diet you can think of
Finally I want to say we all have this condition for some unknown reason, and this method may not work for you. Just know that many people have cured themselves without spending 1000's of dollars.
I really think if you cannot find a cure go see an Oral Pathologist.
The lips are a mucus membranes- they are the best people to see. Make sure to call first and ask them if they have dealt with this issue. Please feel free to reply and ask questions.
To everyone suffering from acne I've finally found an amazing solution.. First I'll give you a bit of background info.. I have always been very healthy and meticulous with my diet and exercise.. At one point I went a little off the rails with my Sugar and dairy intake which I am certain contributed to my outbreak of acne and subsequent skin infection, I tried everything to get on top of it and nothing seemed to work. I was put on yasmin (birth control pill) to treat it 2 years ago and it did clear up (after the initial 4 months). I then became aware other problems it was causing to my health in the way of sinus issues, vitamin depletion and a number of other strange coincidences health wise. I really wanted out but could not fathom the idea of having acne return.. then one night I saw a segment on a new acne breakthrough called Photo Dynamic Therapy. It has traditionally been used to treat facial skin cancers and sun damaged skin. The procedure basically consists of having aminolevulinic acid (ALA) put on your face then you lie under an LED light, 20 minutes of red light, 10 minutes of blue. They found it works for acne as the ALA attaches to the sebaceous glands and effectively shrinks them. It is the same mechanism as roaccutane in that it shrink the sebaceous glands but it requires up to 3 treatments and must be repeated every 2 years, so it isn't as permanent as roaccutane. A far better option as far as I'm concerned as it does not carry any of the internal side affects or risks. The only downside is the recovery time is up to 10 days for each treatment. Recovery time depends on the amount of time the ALA is left to soak on the skin. Mine was left for 3 hours. It is basically like the worst sunburn you will ever have with alot of peeling and constant application of rosehip oil/pawpaw ointment/sorbelene creams required. But it was completely worth it, they say you need 3 but my skin has remained clear after 1 treatment. It all depends on the severity of your acne. If you live in Australia the dermatologist that developed a light system for this exact purpose is Dr Douglas Grose. I googled and found a skin clinic that uses his equipment and protocol. Hope this helps you all in the same way it helped me. This procedure is truly a god send if you have over active sebacious glands!! x

You have parasites clogging you up. Count on it. Do Dr. Clark's cleanse which includes needing to use a zapper. Here's my new favorite quote from her book:
"Only Two Health Problems
No matter how long and confusing is the list of symptoms a person has, from chronic fatigue to infertility to mental problems, I am sure to find only two things wrong: they have in them pollutants and/or parasites. I never find lack of exercise, vitamin deficiencies, hormone levels or anything else to be a primary causative factor." 'Cure for All Diseases', page 2
Don't believe any 'doctor's' diagnoses--they are trained by the pharmaceutical cartel-backed medical 'schools' aka brainwashing institutions to disregard parasites entirely, as well as any infestation symptoms, which is what all these auto immune 'diseases' actually are.
They say 'cause unknown' because they can't think of a good pretend reason for those symptoms.
Again, regular ’doctors’ and their tests never detect any real parasite problem. If they aren’t in...
Again, regular 'doctors' and their tests never detect any real parasite problem. If they aren't in your digestive tract, they don't really register on the deliberately inaccurate tests.
The 'elites' don't want you to know how badly you're infested. They count on those infestation to make you sick, manifest one of their pretend 'diseases', and need boatloads of their products, natural stuff or drugs (they now own both, pretty much), to try and get well to benefit their most profitable arm, the pharmaceutical cartel.
Fist time poster here, desperate for any kind of help.
I have dealt with skin issues for over 10 years now, taking countless antibiotics along the way, and eventually resorting to taking Accutane.
My main problem is on my nose, which became very red and stuffy around 4 or 5 years ago. I was diagnosed with Rosacea and got countless IPL laser treatments which did work but didn't address the issue completely.
I am now looking for help in searching for the root cause of my red nose and skin problems in general. I had also suffered from a consistent rash on my thigh and itch on my skin and around my anal area.
I have now come to the conclusion that I have severely damaged my insides due to antibiotic abuse over the years, and have been trying to correct this for over a year now as my skin problems still persist.
My nose still flushes and slightly swells up when i eat most foods and is just generally red all of the time. My cheeks and other areas of the face aren't as effected as my nose is with acne/redness/dryness.
I feel i may have a Candida Overgrowth due to destroying my insides, which would lead to food allergies/ acne / itching / rashes on thigh.
I am currently on a HUMAWORM parasite cleanse and plan to get my bloods done to check for deficiencies.
Would i be right in saying that it could be a fungal issue, or could anyone please give me any help? It would be greatly appreciated.
