Re: How bad is your Exfoliative Cheilitis?

I couldn't find a camera when it was at it's worst, but this is pretty representative.  It was a flakey/scale kind of peeling and the skin underneath was a different texture and brighter pink.  I did use a lip exfoliant product followed with a moisturizer, then sealed with a vaseline type lip balm.  It kept things livable and reduced my urge to pick at the dry skin.

I think the exfoliant helps to get rid of the dry skin without damaging other layers.  Like sandpaper on a board... if you just pull on the splinters, you may end up taking off more wood than you planned.
