My friend you are on the right path. I did the same as your for two years and it only improved each day. Now Im years beyond EC and am healed. Leaving them alone is the key. Trimming the edges is the key. Letting them peel by themselves is key. Do not use anything. You can beat this. Look at some of my old posts if you want. I always told people this is how to beat it but no one listened. Now there are two of us at least.
