I'll look into silver gel. The usual infection I see correlated to EC is Candida Yeast Overgrowth. I'm still researching about it and I've heard people get cured through some sort of cleansing and flushing but I don't even know if I have Candida overgrowth.
I'm a little confused so bear with me. You had EC for years and was treating it casually, and then you got serious and everything is almost normal again in about a week with the help only of silver gel? If so, props to you.
I think I'm in the beginning stage so I hope I can get it down early but what worries me is that I'm sure the upper lip only started to peel a month ago or so, which indicates that it kinda got worse, but the peeling of the lower lip has reduced significantly which is also weird.
