uklad's right. Don't waste your life over this. Find a moisturiser or balm which makes the lips as manageable as possible and get on with it. There's far, far worse things that could be wrong.
For 3 years I let this seriously affect my life. Not going out with friends, avoiding dating girls etc. I went back to Uni at 26 last year to do a teaching course. Finally realising that girls were still interested regardless of this took me out of this spiral.
I used to be completely obsessed with EC. I'd be on here every night longing for a cure and trying everything I could afford attempting to do so. When I think of the hundreds (and possibly thousands) of pounds
I've wasted I can't believe it. Now I still pop back maybe once a week to see if anyone has posted anything more than, "This is definately what's wrong. This is definately the cure etc."
We all have theories but no-one (and I mean no-one) on here really knows what's wrong or truly how to cure it. For the millionth time I'll say that my Fordyce's Spots are linked.
Batrafen (Ciclopirox) applied twice a day and Dovonex applied before bed have made this as manageable as I have found in the last 3 years. The lips peel fairly easily and evenly when I choose to do so.
I'm extremely content with my life at the moment even though I have to peel off three squares on the bottom of my top lip and rinse a white line of slime off my lips occassionally.
You can live life with this. You just have to accept it and deal with it as best you can.
