Re: Iím back after being away for 8 years!

Rala, Sorry to hear you have had this condition for so long. I have had mildly peeling lips for 10 years but I didn't realise I really had a problem because I could control it with constant Aquaphor application. I juts thought I had dry lips as a side effect of Accutane use. However, I made the huge mistake of having a lip filler six months ago and my EC basically exploded into one of the worst cases I have ever seen. This had genuinely been a traumatic nightmare so I can imagine what it must be like to have this for years (I have other long term health problems so know what that is like). Anyway, my thoughts as to why talking less makes the peeling cycle less severe is that the condition is related to xerostomia and talking less means the mucous membrane at the edges of the mouth (the labial mucosa) gets less dehydrated from contact with air and thus less injured and irritated. Actually, given that you are familiar with Daniel Miller, you might know that he said in numerous videos that his inner lips got constantly dry, were the hardest to heal, and that his recovery seemed to get a boost when he quite his call centre job. Again this corresponds to the problem being to do with excessive dryness of the labial mucosa (due to xerostomia).
