Folks, after some serious researching I came upon this image. What does this tell me? It tells me that EC is most likely some kind of membrane/glandular infection/irregularity. Here we have a rodent, with obviously no mercury based teeth fillings, no f***ing lip licking—that so many damn doctors accuse us of doing—and generally a consistent diet. Yet, this rodent has exfoliative cheilitis!
Let's talk about the notorious inflammation present in all of our conditions. Have any doctors really broken it down to us as to what exactly is inflammed? See picture below.
If we look beyond the superficial appearance of the lips and really get down to the underlying anatomy of the lips we see many possible areas that could be prone to inflammation. We truly need to get to the bottom of this because frankly, we are all desperate for a permanent cure and not some damn cover up.
