good question sirpies. i was going to ask the same question did you peel the build up after a certain time ihopethishelps or did you let it come off naturally during your treatment with pro-topic? also i wonder if ec is infact exzma. it behaves a lot like it. and maybe thats why some treatments work for some and others it doesn't. perfect example is pro topic a few people have had great success and i believe still do use it as a way to maintain ec for long term.
anyways thats ashame your not seeing results sirpies. are you useing a moisturizer also or just pro topic?
also ihopethishelps since you say your nearly cured i take it you can go swimming and have showers with out the lips going white? and has the skin grown back normally and covered the affected ec aera or is it still tender and rawish?
