So I've been dealing with exfoliative cheilitis (I think) since September. At first it started out as just an orangy tinge around the top of my bottom lip. Then the skin started falling off. After many months, it just kept spreading and spreading. Now it's my entire bottom lip and almost my entire top lip. It's weird, whitish yellow coloured skin builds up and I peel it off because it looks nuts. I've been reading other people's stories and I don't hear as much about white or yellow skin. Maybe I have an infection as well? Thoughts?
So far I've seen a derm but when I saw her my lips looked healthier because I had peeled off the skin. She said it was eczema, I got patch tests done and I'm only allergic to nickel. Now I'm being sent to a food allergist. I've been given protopic to use, it doesn't really work. It makes mush.
Also when this began I was iron deficient and low in B12. Now I'm on supplements (It's been 3.5 months)
Does anyone else get white goopy crap?
