Yes I think it depends of the people concerned by EC. But from a general point of view I want to believe that this situation can heal....only 5months ago my lips were perfect and since I used to much lips balm I have EC on my upper lip...but I think I can go back to normal lips.
Can you give more details about your lips healing gradually the last 4 months? Is the area of EC smaller? the skin build up thinner? Do you feel other improvement?
I started to heal almost 2 month ago now. I have noticed the EC area becoming smaller and thiner BUT this is very slow and NOT CONSTANT. Sometimes I can feel its healing a lot as the peeling cycle stopped for 2-3days but then everything goes back...I can guess that it depends of a lot of factors that I dont understand yet.
