I've had EC for probably about 3 months now. I always get dry lips throughout the winter, and always apply Vaseline to help. This usually only happens for a couple of weeks then my lips will carry on as normal. This year something was different. My lips stayed dry and we didn't even have that cold of a winter here in the UK.
I realised that I would of stopped using vaseline by now, and stopped using the product. Shortly after the peeling cycle started.
What happens is on the skin or crusts start to build up on wednesday to friday then begin to peel and only finish peeling by themselves on tuesday. The werid thing is, this is only on my bottom lip, which is different to a lot of people here.
So i looked at the possible causes of this, and im quite confused on what it could be. Before i had not the best dental hygeine, i started using this mouthwash called "Dentyl", and now the crusts aren't yellow anymore they are a whiteish clear colour.
I sort of ruled out candida and diet causes as i'd presume it would be on both lips, but my top lip still remains nearly perfect.
Through your experiences, if you could give any suggestions on the cause, as i said it seems werid its only on the bottom lip. Ive pretty much left my lips alone for the last 2 months, i do have a habit of touching them though which im trying to stop.
