Hey tony I agree my dots are all placed only in the top lip were the ec skin is and is mainly on the triangular area! So of course there is some kind of connections. Iv always wondered if the cause of ec is due to our glands stop producing natural lubrication for the lips but in saying that why is the top half of our top lip so perfect? I still to this day think the inflammation is the main purpatrator of this condition.. why there isn't a solid treatement yet is due to the lack of experience and knowledge.of this condition but I believe the year will come were ec will be a thing of the past! It's just a matter of when..we all once had normal lips!
