yea i know my lips dont look that bad anymore, yes my lip did improve because it was terrible looking around 1.5 years ago, it was all red and my lip skin sometimes would turn like yellowish. When i had EC i would just lick my lip instead of putting anything on them. Later on i saw a derm and he told me to use vaseline and to stop licking my lips. I stopped licking my lip but the vaseline didn't work that well so i went back to see my derm and he gave me protopic and i used that for a few months and i noticed my lip got a little better. So im guessing the protopic and me stop licking my lip helped them improve.
