Yes that is a better way if looking at it
I always thought that my lips will cure if i completely left them alone but I can now cross off one thing from my list to cure ec. That doesn't mean that leaving it alone is not helpful but completely leaving it alone is . keep your lips clean, moisturise with coconut oil or something that doesn't cause lips to turn white when water touches it. This is what i have started doing again after getting good results from it earlier .
