No one follow this Poster. You are advocating cross contamination of e.c if it is a yeast/fungus related or staph infection connected. You have no idea of the conflicting therapies you are detrimentally offering as possible cures. Saliva is contained in the mouth and on the tongue, if licking the lips was a cure everyone would have been cured ages ago. My life changed with this ailment when I STOPPED biting,and licking my lips. I am maintaining my lips with minimum social hassle thanks to NOT following your dubious remedies.
