Thanks guys :p
I'll try to answer all your questions.
I had the condition for around 6 months. I got it after a TCA chemical peel to my lips to diminish fordyce spots, and taking the skin off too early.
I have no allergies that I know of nor did my derm believe it was an allergy, just a reaction to the injury of my lips. No history of this or anything else that telling in my family.
I haven't seen my derm in a while because I was healing so I haven't asked any more questions.
I was camera shy when I first got the condition and used the first pic to demonstrate what my lips looked like on a few occasions here. They were bright red with fast accumulating build up, at first the buildup was yellowish and then it went a clear/whitish color until it started to stop coming.
I don't find anything I did towards diet or supplements really worked. It was mostly just treating the lips in the fashion I have laid out here, getting good sleep and having a positive outlook.
Back to work and MMA. Whats next for me is pursuing my dreams and getting on with life.
I have a new perspective on things and appreciation for life like never before.
