Very thick white/yellow scabs form on my lips slowly. They just keep building up. My old problem used to just be peeling lips, but after a few experiments my lips got ANGRY, especially after my dermatologist gave me Betaderm (strong topical steroid) to try. Now I'm f***ed, pardon my language. I've also been trying the low nickel diet, because I'm allergic to nickel, but it hasn't been worked yet. You can barely eat anything on this diet, which must not be very good for healing. It's so hard to go to work like this. Does anyone else have the thickening goopy scabs? I also noticed it smells...and the skin atop my lip (like "mustache" area) and above my chin also flakes and scales) I wish so much it could go back to just being peeling lips.
Also, as a last ditch effort my dermatologist has me on Prednisone for three weeks. I'm on day three. I'm really hoping it helps, even if to just get my lips to stop with the goop and just be peeling again.
