Precisely ... What was Causing the sensation in the lips in the first place to even consider applying a balm. The same thing may apply to Why people felt the need to keep licking the lips? Interestingly I read that cats as a side symptom to food allergies will lick their paws. What is causing the sensation on the lips.. To become a habitual lip licker? What is also interesting is that the sensation of my lips heightened during some moments of stress - without lip balm- and fortunately stopped at the burning tacky stage and White when wet. Another time after a stomach bleed my entire lips bacame a big crust like a toffee apple.
It is interesting though that this should manifest this way externally on the lips? It may or may not be another Relevant dot to consider in the bigger picture? During my first initial peel only my top lip was swollen a recognised symptom association with a stomach bleed Which unbeknownst to me I had at the time. In other words my stomach inflamation was mirrored on the lips which also peeled. It's hard to pin point any cause or effect as I had several physical issues running simultaneously plus dental treatment !
I could understand that problem lips could appear in a matured body whose long and maybe unhealthy life style would link this to a result due to an overall degenerative condition...but there's so many young people who have it that haven't had the chance to run their bodies into the ground.... Not unless for genetic reasons which predisposes inviduals to a greater sensitivity for toxic over load or have inherited immune systems that need support or ones that can't afford to be impaired? Does anyone know the age of the youngest case? Or is the onset around teenagers?
