glad to hear you are giving it a try. im sure you feel relieved that you can lick your lips now. im sure it will work for you. make sure that if you feel that the peeling can come off easily nibble it off, and eventually it will stop. you shouldn't stop licking your lips though or your ec will come back, because that is the cause of ec. don't listen to the people that said they tried it because they were doing something wrong I assume they still had there minds set on leaving them alone and not licking them. you can lick them with the moisturizer on still and I would recommend it otherwise dirt and hair and dust will stick to your lips and you don't want to walk around with dirt and debris stuck to your lips. I think moisturizer and chapstick is good though because it traps the moisture from your saliva on your lips and basically you don't have to use as much saliva. remember saliva is just water(moisture) and the chapstick traps it to your lips. so go ahead and use chapstick or Vaseline because these products trap the moisture from saliva on your lips and you don't have to lick your lips as much.
