Re: New sufferer

Hello, again.

I am glad to learn you are leaning away from the protopic.

I have had full blown EC for nearly one year with the peeling starting in the summer of 2011. I think it was triggered by nearly two years of excessive use of chapstick and similar balms due to dryness. I think the dryness was initially caused by me not drinking enough water and constant climate change due to weekly airplane travel. (Just my best guess... chapstick for sure was the main cause - I hate that stuff now!)

The issue for me with the candida diet was that I lost too much weight and it caused me a lot of stress as I tried to figure out what I could and couldn't eat. Maybe it helped some, but I am skeptical. I am positive leaving the lips alone and living as healthy as possible(including acupuncture, therapy, and stress relieving techniques) have made the most difference and are contributing to my gradual healing.

I had all the tests - allergies (both seasonal and food),autoimmune tests, vitamin definciency tests, celiac disease test, and so on. No underlying cause or disease was revealed. One test revealed some sensitivities to certain foods, but upon further examination I learned the type of test (IgG) is unreliable. I do avoid gluten and dairy as both cause me digestive issues.

Does this help? :-)
