A while ago I took a Chinese medicine made from Ginseng and Astragalus called Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang. It was suppose to calm inflammation in my gut. Right after I started taking it my bottom lip started to itch, which it has never done before, and than it started to peel in areas that it never has before. Soon my whole bottom lip was peeling not just the vermilion boarder like it usually does. Also it was itching and burning which is all new. I stopped taking it when I ran out and almost immediately my lips went back to “normal” which is peeling every couple of days only on the vermilion boarder. I am convinced that this medicine is a very important clue to solving this problem. I would really appreciate it if someone else tried Bu Zhong Yi Qi Tang to see if they get similar results. It would have to be this exact product because I have taken similar things with no results. I am going to look into this more and hopefully get some more information.
