It seems like more than a coincidence that so many people with ec have fordyce spots on their lips, myself included. Fordyce spots are blocked sebum glands, sebum is the natural lubricator of our lips. Who knows the extent of the connection but I'm sure there is one. Not everyone who has ec has fordyce spots, and vice versa. But their presence does seem to make you more susceptible. Btw you've been posting on this forum a very long time.
