I have had this for so long and lived by maintaining..
I healed myself by trying many remedies then one worked. Here it is, I had been using coconut oil and a swipe of lemon juice and this seemed to help, I discontinued this when I then decided that the symptoms were similar to athletes foot or fungal infection,the cracking, splitting, going white when contacting water etc.
On Dr Ray Sahalien (hope got the name right)on his website he recommended soaking the foot in Epsom Salts for 1 hour a week and said that the person was healed in 3 weeks. I decided to do the same soaking the lips in Epsom Salts 2x a day this being e.c and not easy to get rid of, so this is what I did , I soaked them 6% Epsom Salts (magnesium sulphate) to 94% volume water approx. I did this in the evenings,since skin and build up grows more at night, I then followed it with a slather of coconut oil while the lips were still wet.
The solution was blood warm not hot. Yes, it was boring doing the soak but I had do it or die with this ailment, I had some good music on during the soak, I also moved around a couple of seconds when it got tiresome, then returned back to the soak. I also lightly brushed them before and during the soak, you will see flakes of skin float off that is fine, the real disease is under the skin which is why the soak worked.
I also realised I have had yeast infection all of these years. I repeated this in the morning for about 5/6 minutes and while wet I would slather on the coconut oil a (known yeast and staph buster).
I waited 30 days before I decided to post my cure today is day 31 no peeling nothing. By the way the peeling ceased around the 3rd week, it got smaller and smaller and that's how I knew it was working, but I continued beyond 28 days just in case. I wore lipstick yesterday and nothing happened I have used rouge as make up for lips on the odd occasions, but yesterday and today I am wearing lipstick and I cant believe I am finally free. However, I am still cautious and did a soak this morning for 5 minutes.
If I have to soak them 5 minutes am /pm I will do it for ever if need be, I no longer have to plan which days the shedding is likely to occur or worry about it.
I am beyond thrilled it was so bloody easy but who would have thought Epsom salts!!!
Please don't suffer go to the chemist/drugstore and get some it is natures exfoliant yeast and bacteria buster!
