That's great to hear although a little ironic since what I usually read are people telling me NOT to lick. It seems to me that most sufferers have it the worse on the lower lips? Mine started just on the lower and it kind of spread to the upper, thankfully it is manageable somehow. I can't reallt determine the cause of mine yet but I'm certain I had it during the time I was depressed and stressed. Hmm about the fordyce spots, I'm sure I don't have any.
Anyway, I'm almost certain it started around the end of September 2015. During that time I kept aggressively rubbing the lower lips, hoping that it wouldn't spread to the upper. I think I only noticed the upper starting to peel a month ago.
Does that mean I'm doomed forever? That it WILL eventually get worse, not just 'can get worse'? Pretty weird though since I started leaving them alone, it's starting to look and feel better by just applying aloe and clipping off the excess skin that sometimes regrows, although again it's only been a little more than a week. Yeah this is my first post but I've actually been reading for quite some time now.
