we have the same EC affected area (1/3 top lip + a very little bottom lip) and the same symptoms of healthy skin vs EC skin (shiny, reddish, clearly damaged) and, from reading your posts when you first arrived here, i even think that we developed EC the same way in a winter climate with too much lip licking (and too much commercial lipstick for me).
its interesting that, at this point, both of us don't seem to see much progress with the moist healing treatment. It may be that it is too early to judge it, and we need to be patient. Or that we are still missing something about our EC.
I didnt try to deal with the inflammation yet but i will start an HC product asap.
