hey! don't panic. what has "spread" to your outer lips probably isn't EC, but normal dry skin just as everyone gets them if they lick their lips when it's cold outside. wait a couple of days and don't touch the crusts. it will turn into normal skin again, i'm sure. remember that normal folks' dry lips look very similar to EC-crusts. and many people have dry lips in winter, especially if they lick them! (don't do that!) keep us updated!
