Thanks for your input. I guess maybe I shouldn't have called it a "ring". I did a good deal of peeling skin off, not waiting for it to get as bad as I've seen some of the pictures online.
I was peeling throughout the day, in different places, I just couldn't take it!
When I'd peel some places off, that I suppose weren't really "ready" to be peeled, I'd take some skin off around the mouth too.
Like I said, I'm no doctor, and I've seen the same treatment mentioned on other sites, so I thought I'd try it.
