By the way, the Dr. oz show did a show about how the lips can show a health problem. However, it was only about chelitis (angular cheilitis). He advised to always wear beeswax coating to protect lips from wind or heat. Or he said you could apply oil from side of your nose. All he said was angular cheilitis was caused by fungus, and cheilitis can be caused by dehydration. It was nothing new. So, I guess doctors can't really help us if this is all they are taught about the lips.
I just remembered how I watched this episode of You Are What You Eat from the UK. I think this overweight woman was addicted to caffeinated soda. To show what she would look like in future, they aged her with makeup to make it look like she had peeling lips. Hey, maybe Gillian from the show could help us figure out EC. I will email her a question.
