I used to post on here for a bit and i've told my story previously if you want to check it out. Since then there's been slow progress but not really anything to call home about. My lips are still damaged and refusing to heal. I've eliminated everything from my diet, changed everything I applied to my lips but there was still something irritating my lips. The one common factor that I haven't changed over the past two years (I've had EC for 3 that's why I didn't think it was causing it) are my braces. It's kind of my last hope and I'm getting them removed tomorrow so I'll see what happens and keep you guys updated!
