triamcinolone steroid ountment didnt fix my exfoliative cheilitis...hell it did practically nothing. i rate triamcinolone a 3/10.
clobetasol steroid ointment worked better but even that was like 6/10 performance wise
not including side effects which are serious/severe esp. long term. steroids are not a long term solution.
Problem with steroid ointments for exfoliative cheilitis
#1 steroids thin the skin on your lips so long term they are not a solution; this info is from 2 oral medicine doctors this is not merey my opinion but what 2 doctors told me
#2 there are nasty side effects with steroids long term
#3 they dont work/dont work well
#4 they stop working
#5 they cause the cheilitis to be even worse once you stop using the steroids like a rebound effect. this has been reported but ive never seen it first hand & ive used steroids combined time about 3 months total
