my problem started when i was heavily biting and licking my lips last winter.
i don't think it had anything to do with my diet, since it was just the same as always and it was not unhealthy.
i'm not allergic to any foods or at least i don't know about it. i've tried eliminating various foods but it left my condition totally unchanged. it is not in any way affected by what i eat.
i stopped using balms and ointments half a year ago and manually peel them every 2-3 days.
when i leave them alone, a crust forms and gets ever thicker. they don't peel on their own, the skin buildup simply ever increases.
how was your condition triggered? did you bite your lips? what happened when you left it alone? did huge "cornflakes" form or did they just peel on their own after a while?
