Not on any meds, no drug use, no main surgical procedures, no main aliments.

I’ve had this drawback since I used to be a child. I am 24 now, and the earliest I keep in mind this taking place I used to be 6. Me nor my mother have been capable of finding out why this occurs or what it’s. It occurs a couple of instances out the 12 months, after which would simply disappear. I will get a random VERY dry patch on my higher lip, simply the higher one and can get greater with time. I would not burn or itch, or something. It is simply dry af. I’ve used EVERY lip balm in the marketplace! Carmex, Vaseline, Blistex, EOS, Burt’s Bees, Coconut Oil, Kokum Butter, and now Aquaphor.. you title it, I’ve in all probability tried it. My mother used to place soooo a lot Vaseline on me as a toddler and nonetheless nothing, nonetheless dry because the desert. She used to suppose it was a fungus on my lip. If I do not placed on lip balm 600,000 instances a day (or simply hold my lips moisturized) it’s going to begin wanting white, crusty, and flaky.

One of the best remedy I’ve developed over time is exfoliating my lips with a heat damp washcloth and patting the world with rubbing alcohol. That often removed the patch in per week or two. As a result of COVID, I can not get any rubbing alcohol proper now, and the patch is rising, virtually overlaying my prime lip, flaking, and ruining my lip stick functions lol

Severely although, has anybody else handled one thing like this earlier than? Does anybody know what it’s?
