Not so well. I came out of hiding after periodically lurking on here for about 15 years. I tried a home remedy of frequent salt water soaks for appoximately 20 minutes for two weeks or so and it exacerbated the problem. At first, I had EC on almost the entire bottom lip and half of the top lip. But the salt water destroyed the remaining good skin on my lips. Consequently, I have EC over the entirety of my lips. I have been hiding out in my apartment trying to cure this condition and I've only set myself back. I actually was starting to lose my mind a couple of weeks ago. My hopes and my dreams are about all I have.
