Re: How it all began?
Well then I think you will be waiting forever. There won't be a miracle drug that cures everyone because the condition is CLEARLY different for everyone. For you to still not see that absolutely baffles me.
This is an inflammatory skin condition. The cause of the inflammation may differ from person to person. The inflammation could be triggered by trauma, infection, inflammation in the digestive system or elsewhere in the body (ie celiac), or by some other means.
Just because you didnt bite your lips doesn't mean that you didnt cause them trauma. You seem to have had chapped lips which you were constantly picking at which could have triggered the inflammation. But I obviously can't be sure. It's everyone's job to figure out what causes/caused the inflammation in their specific case. Then you can go on to treat it.
But that's the key. To find what causes the inflammation for each specific case. But although everyone's inflammation may have been caused in different ways I believe that the trauma caused by peeling off the buildup, feeds the inflammation for everyone.
I don't see how people are still peeling their lips. I don't see how someone can't see that constantly ripping skin off your lips can't be doing ANY good.
But hey. To each his own.
