I don't know when EC start. I THINK 2015..... or 2014 (I remember faintly picking and dry
I started to use FLOSS (I Visited the dentist because of teeth... replaced my 2 teeth with alloy teeth in 2014)
but I used floss more frequently IN 2015
and more frequently stretched my lips...(I have had bad wisdom tooths so I decided to use floss more )
I think stretch is one of causes or cause of aggravation (cause of aggravation or main cause..)
i realized my crust in 2016 jan because i quit my lip balm (i remember i used lip balm more frequently in 2015. 2~3years ago i rarely if ever used lip balm)
2016 : apr and aug and dece
(my doc removed my keratin
apr and aug and dece)
I saw Apr (I guess .. perhaps Feb or Mar)
after first improvement
(leave dry... i did't apply but i don't know taking a steroid dose)
I thought it is just wound and floss is cause and my crust is nothing...
I donno but my upper lips 10~15% turn good
when I woke up edge of crust turned white and slightly separated (not wet)
I trimmed separated white part.
(still make very very thin keratin
no striking crust.)
but my upper lips 40% keep making crust. if i leave crust dry crust turn yellow and thickening
(i was taking steroid pill and A tiny amount of steroid cream in may ~ june)
aug : in june i thought edge of my lower lips healed when I trimmed separated yellow part
edge looked fine... but in june my doc
removed my keratin with liquid
after that edge of my lower lips started to build but different from main huge crust
build up speed was more slow and tightly hugged my edge.
i used vasline. some part of main huge crust became squashy but my edge is not..
then i visited another doc.. he removed my keratin for biopsy.
i confirmed good looks of my edge (15% improvement of lower lip)
NOV : I DISIDED TO LEAVE ALONE and quit some food (egg and almond and gluten and processed food)
lips but i started to use steroid pill and ointment 12/7
i donno LEAVing ALONE is the key or steroid is the key....
12/14 my doc removed my keratin
(they look so squashy)
then i saw some improvement 10% lower
but there is possibility that LEAVing ALONE make improvement and i just use steroid
i mean steroid do nothing just coincidence
or steroid make improvement
i think leaving alone or steroid or Vaseline can be my cure
and i think food is not cause
because i ate more processed food in jan~jun
(in jan ~ mar i used to use Vaseline
a few days. but Vaseline make my crust squashy so easy to remove... when i woke up some crust gone....)
i'm using water only for tooth and face and body and electric tooth brush
i split food and eat without contact(lips)
i didn't continue one way
i have changed my way every months
when i trim my crust it made early peeling nevertheless i did.. so much
that is my problem
i want reply...
if you saw improvement like me...
my upper lips 65% good (was 40%)
my lower lips 25% good (was 5%)
but I donno why.....
i stay at home mostly
seeing video or broadcasting
I quited my game and everything that need concentration
because deep concentration can make unconscious action of lips and vasodilatation of lips
