i am a 24 yr old female.
i have had this condition for the past 10 yrs.
its the same symptoms like you all, peeling lips that go white when wet,
they get drier n peel in abt 4-5 days.
after having tried everything possible from alopathic to homeopathcic to all kinds of creams
i also took injections from my derm
but nothing has helped any b bit
the only thing that can make our lives easier is something that peels the skin easiily so that we are a always on day 1 of peeling.
this i found by chance,
i used to use vaseline at bedtime on the 4th day and peel the next day
and i use v lil vaseline to dab on my lips at day time
now one day i cud not find my vaseline tube
so i applied this cream lying on the table..
it was one of those small tubes one gets complimentary at hotels.
i was on my day 1, and even with vaseline i cant peel on day 1
now i applied this cream in morning
just before leaving for work my lips felt dry (as the cream had been soaked up)
so i applied some more n left..
when i came home in evening n washed my face the thin layer of skin that had developed on my lips peeled off so easily as it does on the 4th day!
i was so amazed..
ok so i tried it again the next day , n it works wonders,,
i use to peel every alternate day as i find the 2nd day the most comfortable.
the cream is called 'Morning Nectar' by 'Biotique'.
its a indian company n i live here so i could get it easily..
i searched the net and its also avaible for world wide shiipping on many websites..
you delfy shud give this a try if u like being on day 1 and 2 of peeling..
and u dont have to push , the kin slides off so easily..
and most importantly, plz dont get depressed, its not worth it
i have also been thru it and belive me its harder for a girl.. btu now i feel all those days of crying n hoping.. its not worth it
just live your life... there are worse things than this..

i will reply back asap!
