You're not being negative, you're being realistic. I'm just curious with how people's lips reacted to the leave it alone method, and how it relates to mine. Even though I don't know the cause of this condition, I figured since people have posted pics with saying there cured from this method, I might as well try it in case it cures me for some odd unknown reason. One thing I can't stand is the placebo effect with ec. There's so much false hope. I remember with the Lily Epsom Salts method, she talked about how this was it, it cured her, and everyone was hopeful and bought it. Later on she says it didn't work and her lips still peel. Same, thing with the leave it alone method/ constant moisture method, everyone was hopeful and talking about how this was it, later on there are people that say it doesn't work. The main issue with me is that I have a hard time managing my lips and when I'm managing it I still have to wipe my lips constantly. The jaw thing you brought up keeps bothering me. I wish there was someone that has ec, that got braces and jaw surgery, so we would know how it affected there lips.
