about the other minor micro bacteria ,,,indeed they are very rare,,,and occur mainly in immunocompromised people((i dont think we are immunocompromised coz if we are we would be suffuering many chronic microbial infections)).
more over minor micobaceria mainly case tuberculosis like disease.((less severe tuberculosis)).
polymorphonutrophils are the main cells in the acute and chronic inflamation,so its normal that they are present on lips which are chronically irritated and inflamed.
about clofazimine,, first its a third line in the treatment of leprosy and mycpbacterium avium complex,,
the drug acts in two ways:
1- interfere with production of dna in bactria
2- anti-inflamatory cortisone like action, and in our case it will decrease the peeling only when administered but as the cause of the proplem is not yet treated as soon as you stop using the drug the peeling will continue.
i dont recommend using the drug cuz of very serious side effects,,,
