Hey guys and girls. I've been reading this forum for a few months. I've had EC for a little over a year. I got it when I was 23 during an extremely stressful period of my life. I'm using Bepanthen right now to keep my build up under control. I still get the white slime and my lips are constantly tight and uncomfortable.
Anyways I was just wondering if anyone else has any family members that also have EC. The reason I ask is because I remember that my grandmother had EC although I didn't know what this condition was at the time. She passed away before I got EC so I never got a chance to ask her about this condition. She was a kind, humble woman that never complained. It really is unfortunate that people get cursed with this awful condition.
I strongly believe that EC is hormonal in nature judging by the age most us get it and has something to do with genetic disposition. Trauma definitely plays a significant role as well.
Any thoughts? I know it's kind of a strange topic. I've just been struggling with this condition a lot lately. My life just hasn't been the same since I got EC. Hope everyone is managing and doing well.
