JSL - have you tried the Bepathen? My son has been using it for less than a week but I think his lips already looking better - not so much buildup or inflammation. He even says it seems to help and he never says that about anything.
I really noticed the inflammation on his lips - I didnt notice it before because of the crusts. But really the main problem is that the lips are inflamed and then the crusts develop it seems - I guess I never saw it that way before - i thought the lips just peeled. Seems like inflammation would be easier to cure than it is.
Hope the Bepathen works - he starts community college mid January.
