I totally know how you feel about feeling like youíre looked at as an inconvenience by doctors. Iím so sick of being treated like because this isnít fatal it isnít worthy of being taken seriously. It doesnít kill you but it makes life difficult in a way most people canít comprehend. Iím a 23 year old female and thereís so much pressure already to look a certain way and when one of the features you actually feel ok about with yourself goes out of whack its devastating. Especially bc of all it prevents us from doing normally. Iím happy I found this forum and Daniel Millerís channel bc Iíve been on the brink of complete insanity and wouldíve COMPLETELY lost it by now if I havenít. I took off from my job for a few months after saving up some money at the cost of making my lips so much worse. I was in and out of the bathroom every 10 minutes at my job viscously rubbing off the skin. I would bite, lick and suck them constantly to make sure no one could see what was going on. Now Iím basically quarantined with all of the Coronavirus stuff going on and my classes are now online. I feel so much pressure to fix this now while I donít have to see many people. Itís scary bc what if the way Iím treating it makes it worse and I run out of time. I know if I really have to face the world I could lose control and go back to my old ways of peeling them. Right now Iím using a flutisacone and alternating it with Tacrolimus every 2 days. I also use aquaphor a few times a day. I havenít picked or interfered with them at all for a few weeks now. Iíve made mistakes of bumping into them or something but Iím trying not to beat myself up for that. Mine started as angular chelitis and redness in the corner of my lip. I used Mupiricon for the cut (Cleared it right up) and cortisone cream for the redness. I overused the cortisone bc the red kept coming back and I think it damaged my skin. It got so dry and I would constantly try to fix it in all the wrong ways. This is why Iím worried about using flutisacone now but Iím hoping itíll decrease the inflammation while the skin grows back. Iím trying to cut out gluten and dairy lately but today I had a really bad panic attack which resulted in me ordering a 20 piece nugget and 2 iced coffees. Iím revisiting my dermatologist tmmrw and asking about dupixent bc she mentioned it the last time I was there. Maybe you could ask your doctor about that. She said it helped another patient with peeling lips. Seems like more of a biological treatment. Iím trying to remain hopeful bc what other choice is there? Daniel millers YouTube channel is proof that your lips could be in this state one day and then suddenly you find what works for you and youíre awake from this bad dream and living a normal life. Maybe even a better life bc youíll appreciate it more. Anyway, this was a longer post than I planned. I just have no one to talk to about this who gets it and your posts really resonated with me. Next year at this time maybe weíll be living normal lives. In the meantime Iím working on being kinder to myself and enhancing my other features and doing what I can do for now. We are all doing everything we can.
