I can understand our situation. But you gotto to think positive on your condition.
*******The most important thing i have done is, i discussed my condition with the people i mostly meet everyday so that i dont have to feel uncomfortable in front of them. Also i dont have to lick or peel when i talk to them. I discussed with my manager about my condition so no issues at my workplace either. Believe me, Mostly all the people will respond positive.
Now i dont have to worry about my lips when ever i tak to them. TOP MOST STRESS RELIEVER. But i dont meet any new people. This wont be long to be completely cured. Just 6 months(hopefully) with out a lip balm, with a good diet and exercise.
I am lipbalm free from the past 7 weeks. I have a very very very thin green area(this area doesn't peel anymore) in the bottom (towards chin) of the lowerlip. Believe me it took me totally 3 months(for first 5 weeks i applied coconut/olive oil only once to transform to completely lipbalm free) to see this green area. Its all about patience.
Your are suffering from EC for the past 2 years. As your not gonna loose anything, Why dont you give this lipbalm free technique a try? because once you get healed with this technique, your body knows how to handle this situation. But make sure you do this for atleast 6 months before coming to a conclusion.
Lets fight EC together... Peace..
