Re: Exfoliative Cheilitis - My 6 month journey from 'EWWWWW' to 'Ehhhh'

Okay so update. I posted this on a different account but I'll reply here too.

The honey helped thicken the layer of skin however it was very hard to maintain. My lips are quite susceptible to anything I put on it right now so they take on a similar colour; meaning I had honey-stained lips for a while. This was okay on its own but the lips itself felt like the consistency of dried honey, not soft and would easily break.So I stopped using honey but I reckon it did help with repairing the layers underneath a little. I continued to dabble with glycerine for a while and I used the Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera which I DO NOT RECOMMEND as it is NOT 100% ALOE VERA. Glycerine is good for moisture but it didn't help with controlling the buildup of white mush, sometimes it felt like it made it worse.

Now I'm using 100% Alove vera gel along with the Aloe Vera Vaseline version (yes I know, petroleum??? But so far it's been good with no adverse reactions). A comment above said the white mush may be a fungal infection which I tend to agree with. I did try and get a swab done but didn't get the results back for whatever reason. I have been using acidophilus liquid daily but can't tell if it's helped or not. For me, I just have a small hole in my lip that is disturbing everything. Saliva just seeps out of it and causes the lip-skin to displace and turn white which is incredibly annoying. I feel if this hole was to heal then that would be the start of the end. I've observed the skin attempting to cover the hole but I do admittedly remove the skin over varying lengths of time because it is aesthetically disturbing.

I may stop using moisturisers on the remaining affected parts and just continue using aloe vera on them instead. I'll be back.
