Yeah that was me that made that comment. I think when you take a picture with your lips together it's harder to tell some of the rawer parts because the insides of people's lips are usually where most of EC is noticeable. But it doesn't seem like Daniel in earlier photographs had severe damage in the upper lip triangle in the center that others with EC like myself have. He did make a comment saying he uses chap stick all day. His EC might return if he stops using it, but I guess will never know because I doubt Daniel would want to stop using chap stick. I've been leaving my lips alone for a while, and when you leave them alone with EC the lips are going to peel and that is far from normal looking. I want to eliminate the possibility of my method not working before applying something like Aquaphor healing ointment and go the route that Daniel has gone. But it seems from reading the forum that a lot of people who have used Aquaphor said it didn't do anything for them. I think my specific method of leaving them alone is working and progressing however so I am going to continue to do it until I can completely rule it out. Because if I decided to use aquaphor and other lip products all day to make my EC manageable then I believe it would negate all the work I've done up until this point with my specific method of leave alone.
