You know what, I have a feeling that I may start to get some inflammation soon. I just finished brushing my teeth and underneath the scab feels like a tingly burning sensation already. I've never felt it before since I had this condtion.
Yes that's exactly what I meant. I actually posted another update in the forum this morning but here is the pic anyway:
That was taken right after wetting my lips and drying a bit so the lighting can see the scab better. The flakiest part to the right on my lower lip that you can see is where the burning tigly sensation is, I'm assuming it is the raw flesh underneath and probably my toothpaste is what caused the burning feeling.
Well I need to order online ASAP then because I'm getting really worried here. Btw the pic is not a representative of how bad mine is, there are days where they get yellowish and flaky but I cut them off asap because I'm not sure if leaving them alone will actually make it better. I generally avoid getting it wet or let food touch it because I noticed they regrow/peel less that way, but when left very dry is also what continues the regrow/peel cycle.
Another thing I forgot to tell you, I finally told my grandmother (since I live with her) about this and she gave me the ointments her derm gave her for some type of problem she has. She gave me Clobetasol and Ketoconazole, both I think are steroids? I'm scared to use them dude. She's contacting said derm but I expect the usual response that people here get. I've heard some people saw initial improvements but I think a lot also made the condition worse. Should I jump the gun or what :/
