i don't know of any all natural things i can use. i'm allergic to a ton of things too, like fragrances and essential oils. Yes, i did see a dermatologist because i broke out in an allergic reaction ON MY LIPS originally, in which they were really swollen and had hives on them (which was worse than this but it didn't last once i stopped using the stuff). my lips started peeling because of me picking at them. i had to stop using anything to figure out what i was allergic to, and in the meantime my lips split in two places. i started picking away at the skin where they split and thats how this all started. now, 6 months later it seems like the two splits sorta healed but everytime the new skin is trying to grow, it always splits in those two places again. i dont get it.
and its hard for me too to not do anything because i live at college and am CONSTANTLY around people. I live with 3 other girls that don't know anything about my condition but must have seen it obviously and not said anything.
i am trying so hard to stay positive but they always end up peeling again and they're sooo swollen. should i go back to the derm again? i could tell from the one time i told her about this that she has no idea what it is and i started breaking down in her office and i want to avoid that again, especially after hearing all the horror stories people have said.
oh, and she prescribed me this like dermatological body cream to use on my lips (even though you're not supposed to) that made them super red and swell up. badddd idea.
i just want some hope guys. i'm gonna try to leave them alone. thanks for the support. so did you guys heal your lips or have you been able to manage the condition?
