I wonder if any doctors in the US could be convinced to give this stuff a try. I'm between dermatologists now, but does anyone know one that might be interested in looking into this kind of treatment further?
To anyone who didn't sift through the longer posts in this thread, basically the treatments used in curing exfoliative cheilitis seem to have involved topically applied protoleic enzymes, lidocaine injections (livingnightmare's interpretation of "blockades"), and a corticosteroid/antifungal/antibacterial cream called Lorinden-C. Success was noted for all patients except for the ones who couldn't keep themselves from their lip-destroying habits, in which case it stayed the same.
Rather than haphazardly try to accomplish this at home, it would be great if we could contact doctors that are interested in this disorder.
