Hey, I just want to let you know what has helped me. I've had EC for 10 years, im 25 now, in my early 20's I let EC completely run my life. After years of hiding and trying experiments to 'heal' my lips, this is what helped me to get back on track.
The first thing I had to do was give up marijuana(If you dont use this wont be a problem for you), it intensified the psychological problem of EC and made me think it was worse than it actually was. Not smoking helped me to build up enough confidence to accept my EC and to face people, face to face. I really dont even care about it any more, even if I see people looking at my lips. I have the strength to just stand there and not care what people think, as opposed to going into some weird tripout place when I smoked. Paranoid borderline schizophrenic was what I was on dope.
The second is I apply aloe vera at night, then exfoliate using my finger every morning and use bees wax lip balm when my lips are dry during the day. I lick the white skin off my lips when I feel it has built up.
