I have read many of the messages regarding peeling lips, and I can definitely relate. It is refreshing to know that I am not the only one who experienced these symptoms. My symptoms consisted of the cycle involving peeling and chapping for 3 to 4 days, then normalcy for a day, then the peeling cycle all over again. And also the thick, white coating when in contact with water.
Well I am happy to report that I have found MY cure! It may not work for everyone, but if you'd like give it a try. Doctors never took my condition seriously, so I had to take matters into my own hands.
I take the following 3 vitamins every day with a good breakfast (or lunch if I skip breakfast):
* Multivitamin (a good one with B complex)
* Fish Oil Supplement - 1000 mg (I recommend the enteric coated ones...less fishy aftertaste when burping)
* Evening Primrose Oil Supplement - 500 mg
Throughout the day for moisturization I use Neutrogena's "Instant Lip Remedy". And most important of all, I drink plenty of water everyday.
Within a few days of trying the above regimen, I noticed smooth lips instantly. It's been a few months now and no more peeling lips! Report back on how you make out. God Bless!!
