I have been testing many theories and products throughout the past year and have found the answer to my endless cycle of peeling lips. I also go by the username Glen Christian, as I have posted in other similar forums. I ended up with exfolitive cheilitis because I used to bite my lips and over the course a few years left me with damaged lips that seemed incurable. I have been to the Dermatologist, Allergist, Internal Medicine, and Family Doctor. I ended up using many different types of steroids that worked for the first couple of days and then went downhill causing more issues later on. I've tried every store brand of lip balms (i.e. chapstick, carmex, blistex etc.), prescription lip balms (i.e. Dr. Dans Cortibalm), prescription creams and ointments (i.e. Nystatin). I have tried the candida diet, antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral methods of creams, pills and ointments. I have tried coconut oil, creams, and lotion method. I have tried the leave it alone method, FML doing that for 2 weeks, I did more damage than good. I've tried the garlic method, multivitamins, B-complex, Vitamin C, Fish oil, allergy medicine (i.e. Zyrtec, Claritin, Benadryl). I quit drinking any form of alcohol, tried liver cleanses, internal cleansing, blood cleansing... Then after all that, I saw a posting on here that I decided to try out. //www.curezone.org/blogs/fm.asp?i=2058376.
After seeing this post I decided to try the Aloe vera gel first, then the lotion, then the cream, and finally the gel capsule. I wanted to try the Aloe Vera leaf plant, but I was healed by then. I have concluded that the Aloe Vera Gel Capsule healed me. My lips no longer peel and I no longer use anything on them. What I did was pierce the gel capsule and applied the oil to my lips around 5 times daily for a few weeks. Healing was slow, but there was no peeling during that time. I went down to one application a day, to every few days, and then haven't used any when my lips turned pink. The raw red skin disappeared and my damn fordyce spots disappeared, even a medical doctor told me those were permanent, what an idiot. So there it is Aloe vera gel capsules.
