I have had ec for about 3-4 years. I reported it to my GP Jan 2012 and tried different creams for a year. A few months ago, there was a breakthrough. I tested positive for something from a swab.
i was then given three rounds of Antibiotics
(erythmycin), the latter two being at double dosage. This stopped the golden thick crusts from forming. I finished my last course about 6 weeks ago.
Ive been using a steroid cream (eumovate) which has helped alot, but ive developed an allergy to other creams such as vaseline, aquaphor. Now i use butter.
The line of the lip is slowly going back to normal, (top and bottom) but its taking a while.
Has anyone gone through something similar to me and can advise me?
P.S i have a patch test in a couple months.
