Hello my friend, I am also a fellow college student whose life has been ruined by EC. I have nothing but tales of misery to offer you, and that is why I want to strongly suggest that you try 40mg Prozac. It's dirt cheap, could help with the Depression and (if you're anything like me) will make EC manageable. Maybe you hear the word manageable and think this is just another false cure but believe me it's not. I had daily thoughts of suicide when my EC was full blown (with thick orange crusts) I would probably be dead right now if it wasn't for Prozac making the condition manageable both mentally and physically.
Nowadays my EC is so slight that it can't even be noticed and the dry skin is easy to just bite off so they you have normal looking lips all the time without having to put on aquaphor and have shiny lips.
Please take my advice with the Prozac, it might save your life.
