Chris Juno – No I don’t have any Fordyce spots (Thankfully)- I hope I don’t get them either.
#64643 – They have already been prescribed steroid creams like Hydrocortisone, Eumavate and Betamethasone. None of them made much impact.
Badlips – I’m in England. I told that the steroid creams didn’t help much. Right now they’re trying to come up with new approaches as to help cure my EC.
Uklad – Actually I did mention this forum. I told them about how all sorts of people across the world visit it and how we try to come up new and inventive ways to cure EC. Sadly though, they didn’t seem too interested in knowing the website. I guess with doctors, they’re always busy and have no time for searching for stuff.
In regards to the biopsy, a few of the doctors asked me that. I told them that I hadn’t gotten it done, however some people on this website mentioned they had it but to no avail.
I believe I got EC by a habit of mine as a child - Constant lip licking and lip biting. I have had it for almost 9yrs now. (Sighs)
1. Culture test (for fungus/bacteria)
2. Inflammation blood test
Great I’ll take that into consideration.

I completely agree. Having an optimistic look always helps for sure. That last comment of the female American doctor really left light of hope for me. And after having this for almost 9yrs, I really need all the optimism I can get.
