I have been to lips illness specialist and the problem in this condition is that
The majority of reported cases of this condition refers to people with psychological problem. So, they treat us like this group. The more you try to explain what's wrong with your lips (white stuff the morning when you wake up and so on) the more they belive that it's an obsession, a fixation about this condition, and that it's your fault if the cheilitis does maintain itself (with lip licking)
I am sure 100% that I don't lick my lip. I know what I am doing.
So my conclusion is that it's unnecessary to go to lips specialists in our condition. They are not enough open minded and don't give answers anyway.
My cheilitis started at 17, when I bite my lips by accident and since this day, the cheilitis hasn't stop. And of course, I didn't think at it all the time during this 8 years !
PS : My dentist will remove my Amalgam fillings : he substitutes metallic fillings with resin. I will tell you if this removal improves the condition.
