Right, but with "EC," you'd peel the bottom-lip-crusts upwards, and the upper-lip-crusts towards inside of your mouth--the edges of your lips (the skin of your mouth) would remain untouched and unaffected. You seem to have been able to peel downward too...your peeling seems to have been WAY more abundant and painful than mine was.
Please don't think I'm being confrontational, by the way--I just don't want people pursuing something needlessly if it can be avoided. But there are probably many people who have exactly what you had, and I thank you for sharing your success with them and with us. My guess is that many people stop frequenting these forums when their problem gets resolved.
