Alright. Having all that aquaphor on, for me, made it worse. Applying it without getting it on healthy skin is very difficult, the healthy skin that had aquaphor on it ended up becoming more fragile and eventually succumbing to EC; so my EC spread. In addition to that, I'm pretty sure its also the reason why my lips were swollen more due to the fact that any skin that grew must've died or become useless after being immediately suffocated by the aquaphor and also came off if very easily. For me, the whole thing was pointless, it didn't look good and didn't help at all.
