vunk does your lips grow back at all during the days you have been doing the steam treatment or have they completely stopped? i do beleieve like yourself the only way to cure ec is through natural. i have tried over 30 products with no success. In saying that there has been somethings that make it go away but not permantly. The only way i have heard of getting rid of ec for good is through leaving them alone and strict diet. 1 person healed in 1 month of this and the other person 4 months but both got rid of ec for good.
