i do not know if there is some kind of cream or ointment that keeps the crust on lips more.
nowadays i am using propolis oil. i have used pure honey in the past (it seemed to help with the moisture part but it did not help with the non peeling part as it is sticky)and putting vaseline last week but the moisture was kind bad.
of course keeping the layer of the lips for more days itis quite essential but it contradicts with posts saying that you must exfoliate lips as by manualy exfoliating them you take of some healthy tissue which is connected to dead layer. i know it is a vicius circle. i remember when i first had ec some crust remained on my lips for 10 days or even more and when they came off the lip underneath was red and raw so i guess it depends on the thickness of the layer and the development of ec in general whether keeping crusty layer on lips is the cure or not.
referring to cremes and ointment has anyone using organic hand cream mixed with vitamin a seen any significant improvement ? or is it more moisturizing ?
