That's exactly what happened to me in the first time(I had EC for 6 or 7 weeks I was using Bepanthol in these weeks and nothing had happened...
One day I started with some betametason just for 4 days, and only 1 per day, after that I changed my diet, travelled to be free from stress. Brushed my teeths immediatly after eat like 6 times a day... And like a boooom! I got for some way completely out off peeling, but I also had the white line stuff when I woke up. And the white tonghe was better
I was so excited about my treatment, my lips were better than ever and they were less red, just pink and uniform...I was using only Bepanthol
Somehow, I don't know if the vitamin I took caused it...from nothing they just got 2x sized an inflamed and with wounds all over... The worst problem is in that days my whole mouth was strangle so I pressed my tongue against my oral mucosa and that created a wound... It was 1 month ago and I can't get rid of this
I stopped the Bepantol and I was using nothing on them, they healed, I could smile, everything, but slowly they got back to the peeling, I started the bepantol again and the peeling went away(maybe it was because the vitamin went away, I don't know)
Today I visited my dermatologist and he said: "that's the desiese, it attacked inside your mouth too" and I really don't know what to do
It's under control today, almost no peeling in my lips but, this shit inside my mouth is driven me crazy...
I'm trying do get a candida diet but yesterday I was in a bad headache so I ate some Sugar stuff and it went away. I sleeped just 3 hours... But something tells me that I'm in the right way! I will fight to take my peace back! I really know that this can be beaten!
I think it has a strong emotional cause, somehow, the depths of our subconscious created or let this in, showing a fear to face the world, a fear of being happy. Its from the inside, out of our control... The only example I can say is the fear of pee, if any of you had that when was a kid or have saw in movies, you need to pee but you just can't, only if the place is very calm, or your home.
It seems stupid but I believe in that emocional cause.
