My lips were at their worst when all I did was spray them with water without putting any emollient on them. I nearly went to the hospital because my lips were so bad that I was not eating or drinking.
I dont understand your logic. In Summer & Fall 2011 I have an open nose rhinoplasty and then rabies vaccination shots. In Winter 2011 my exfoliative cheilitis pops up.
Before winter 2011 I never owned lip balm a single day in my life & I never had dry lips let alone exfoliative cheilitis a day in my life. To suggest that water & "my body healing itself" is the cure does not make any sense.
