hey do you guys suffer from inflammation ?
if so can you guys give a advise how i can control it?
i have kept my oral hygiene AAA++++ thus ive seen manageable lips.
when i say this it mean, i brush my teeth in the morning, lips do turn white BUT after i apply coco shea butter and it dry after a hours lips look fine BUT my inflammation is what makes me uncomfortable and make my lips look eh.
Please give me some advise, ive tried benadryl already it doesnt really work.
btw my lips are usually inflamed in the A.M and as the days goes on my lips start to go back down.
Now to RALA & and everyone who is stressed by this- obv i understand
Guys please i cant stress the fact that you guys need to understand that-well yeah okay i know our lips suck, but its our mind that really causes us to think its worse than it is...
from experience when i 1st got EC i was in 10th grade, that year omg i cant explain i usually ended up staying home on weekend, box became my bff,i missed countless days of school ,i was confused i was annoyed, i wanted to be a regular teenager who can go to parties drink a few beer with their friends laugh, take pics to put on facebook-but i couldnt because mentally I was screwed.
This year i am in 11th grade and ive taken and accepted EC. i know as of right now there is no textbook cure,so for me i say f it, as of right now for all of us,its about managing them. Stay active find a product that will allow you to manage your lips. Also to tell you about my improvement, i dont play xbox, i am usually out, even though i am not partying hard like everyone else i am still at the parties smiling and acting like nothing is worng and idk if people are nice but no one has make comments about my lips (even though i think they look bad), only remarks about my lips being big as a joke are made between my boys becuase we are pulling each others legs and than i turn it into a joke like "yeah bro i know i have luscious lips, i kinda look at my self in the mirror everyday". In addition to this i am starting to talk to a girl(not gf&bf but you know what i mean) and honestly she hasnt said anything about my lips. My sister who goes away to college and hardly sees me tell me every time that my lips look better, also two days ago when i thought my lips looked bad she said "wow your lips look good".yes i know you might say oh she just said that to make me happy, no shes my sister we are honest to each other, she isnt trying to bs me, i know it.
Basically my tips as of right now-
1)find a good moisturizer
2)get a proxy brush and clean your gum, after doing this for a 1 month plus my gums at first use to bleed alot hinting my gums arent healthy, now they hardy bleed, and no more bad breath! this thing right here has allowed me to manage my lips.
3) for the guys, grow a beard, but groom it and keep it nice using a buzzer type that they use at barbershops, this kinda camoflagoues the lips
4) find a person that knows you have the EC, and ask them whenever you want to go out or w.e"do my lips look bad" and tell them to be honest and see what they say, i do this with my brother mostly when im about to go to a party
take care my EC family.
please post back for advise.stay strong
