hey ohiodad first off sorry to hear this condition is very harsh... if his showing bits of anxiety and stress its probably becasue of his lips... it does that to people especially if your in your teens or 20's... there is one bloke called lee's check his posts he cures ec through diet... specifically a strict anti-candida diet... im cureently following his same treatment as im now desperate after suffering for now 3 years... im into my 8th week... its hard but obviously you can take charge due to his age and help... no one really knows what ec is... but if you ask me its a form of eczema.. i know its on a unusal place but to me it only makes sense... people have and fully cure eczema through diet and thats why i believe lee's cured himself one of the only guys to //www.curezone.org/forums/am.asp?i=1839585#i
he also states that it came back after begining to eat bad diet and sugary foods and alcohoal again... so obviously eczema or some form of skin condition is in play... the yellow crust... inflammation.. ozzing of fluids.. and very dry skin makes sense to me... anyways have a read and see what you think... most diets take time 3-6 months minimum... also do your own research... theres a possibilty it could be something else like psoriosis etc etc... but if his got crusty yellow cant smile painful inflammed lips you would have to think ec... good news for him is his young easy to maniupulate the immune system... also watch docs iv seen hundreds they will throw any drugs at him.... iv been on lots of medications nothing works... keep the lips moist with a good natural moisturizer.. dont let him lick his lips... also what was ther weather like when his ec started? was it cold temperatures and windy and dry air? or was it summer??? anyways im going to give an update when im at my 3 month period and 6 month period.... my diet now consists of no Sugar includeing no fruit... no nightshades... no dairy... no gluten/wheat... the idea is to heal the gut as the docs think most diseases come from the gut... if you google paleomom she gives a good example also of whats going on... it worked for lees so i know that it can work for anybody.... the immune system is in melt down and somehting gone wrong... we all had normal lips once and they can return back to normal... many people will say oh diet doesnt work... (includeing me as i tried it before once for only 6 weeks which now i know is not long enough period as most people take 4 months to see results) but the fact is i doubt anybody has tried a diet like lees for 6 months... its hard a f*** and takes a lot of disipline but as i said lees did it anyone can do it... anyways if youv got any questions feel free to message me... i do strongly think ec is eczema this is my opinion and of course i highly recommend doing your own research... best of luck and good luck to the little man! he will need it!
