I'm taking 7 Evening Primrose Capsules a day after talking with a Roaccutane/Accutance patient who developed this condition.
Here are my lips upclose. I told everyone on here they have improved. They aren't inflammed because i take Evening Primrose Oil and Zinc but i still have the shedding skin, the WHOLE of the lips skin grows and peels. I use shea butter, which is excellent. My lips are red here because i peeled off yesterday and the skin is growing back. Thats why i need the vitamin A. They look quite normal apart from the redness(i naturally have big lips btw), which i hate because i am black(looks like i'm wearing lipstick). I already know how to get rid of inflammation.. so this is how my lips look day in day out, apart from constant change of color due to skin growing and peeling. I don't leave the skin on long enough for it to go yellow.... never again. I've come a long way, when i was younger it was horrible. I know how to maintain my lips and "disguise" the problem.
I have Exfoliative Cheilitis believe me, i've had shedding of skin and inflammation of the lips for over 10 years. Shea butter is the best moisturizer i've found for this, makes it easy to peel and not unsightly to look at. I looked at the pictures in the Image Gallery
and those are all EC but you can tell there are different causes, mine has never gone bright yellow.. only brownish yellow.
Just for an example
. In my baby photos, my lips are slightly lighter than the color of my skin, not red. They are red when raw.
I couldn't upload to gallery.. something abut a system error.
