Hi, Iíve had exfoliate cheilitis for about 4 years now originally due to accutane. Iíve seen several dermatologists and even an expert doctor in dental and over the years theyíve had me try several steroids and other treatments that never worked. Iíve also tried brushing with salt and that didnít seem to help, so I recently found your videos and Iím now starting to do a specific diet (chicken, eggs, broccoli, carrots, apples, grapes, pears and water) to see if itís a food related allergy.
Iím curious, does the reaction occur due to the allergen coming in contact with the lips, or is it the digestion that causes it? And how long does it take for it to cause the reaction? Iím wondering because I notice when I eat things like a sandwich with bread and it touches my lips, my lips usually dry up really fast when Iím eating, and by the time Iím finished the skin looks more dry and peeling. Iím also wondering if youíre a doctor or whatís your background for having so much knowledge in this topic? Thanks so much.
