thx for your answers
i have 2 more important questions:
i stopped using balms and ointments half a year ago and manually peel them every 2-3 days.
when i leave them alone, a crust forms and gets ever thicker. they don't peel on their own, the skin buildup simply ever increases.
how was your condition triggered? did you bite your lips? what happened when you left it alone? did huge "cornflakes" form or did they just peel on their own after a while?
