Yes, the same thing happened to me. For now, I'm getting a bit lazy since I'm super busy and I don't have enough time to constantly do this. When I did do this, the inflammation of my lips dropped a lot, but my lips feel like they get dry so fast. When I did a lot of swimming, it also did wonders for my EC, I really think this might be it. Please let us know how things go in the next few weeks for you, and please try to document all of the progress.
