i put "resolved" in capitals but i guess everyone missed it.
"Oral sepsis has also been implicated as a cause of exfoliative cheilitis because it has RESOLVED after implementation of good oral hygiene."
oral hygienge isn't mouthwash and brushing teeth though. that won't do anything for oral bacteria balance.
i wonder where the good oral bacteria comes from? food? saliva? i'll look into it.
it says in the Article..
-people with Aids gets EC from candida albicans, which is normally harmless, but because the body can't defend itself due to Aids the candida grows out of control.. thus EC.
-people with Accutane get EC, because the drug shrinks the sebaceous glands which produce sebum. Sebum inhibits(prevents) microorganisms(bad bacteria) from growing out of check.
-Hot water from showers destroys skin oil, which is used to protect from these pathogens. The skin on the lip is thinner than anywhere else on the body. Taking showers in hot water getting on your lips will strip the lips of any protection it had.
-Lip pickers, lickers... destroy there lips simple and any protection that comes with it.
-chronic stress can cause bacterial overgrowth because it weakens the immune system due to cortisol. this is chronic stress not short stress.
