Is he? Where did you get that information from? I don't think he is healed (if I'm not totally wrong). He's had EC since 2003 or so?
Because my derm found "a lot" of Klebsiella oxycata (bacteria) on/in my lips, I have been on an Antibiotic
for 10 days (stopped yesterday) and I've been using a chlorhexidine-gluconate (similar to Seb) mouthwash (in my mouth and also on my lips) to go with the antibiotic. So far nothing much has changed. This cycle did seem to have slowed down a little bit, so we'll see. Unfortunately, I did peel yesterday (very prematurely, which "a lot of force", so I'm not leaving them while on the "treatment".
I have two appointments next week for more swab tests to check for the bacteria again.
