i don't have any crusts on my lips at present. and not everyone who has EC is letting their lips dry and crust up you moron. there's people on this board who have had this condition for 15+ years, you think that chewing at crusts and licking their chronically inflamed lips is sure to cure them, or that they haven't already tried that/worsened the situation by doing that? stop acting like you have the solution to this because you don't. your lips may be better, good for you, but there isn't a universal cure.
