First time seeing this family doctor. I dont know if he was high or just having fun on this particular day. I went to get a urine and blood test to see if I had any nutritional deficiencies that would cause this EC.

I told him about my lips and he instantly said "its eczima. There is no cure, especially not in California (since its dry)" He said I had rashes on my face and body, caused by my dry skin and that it was affecting my lips too. And he seemed so sure about it, pointing to the number of patients hes seen with similar lip conditions.

In reality theyre just pimples from lack of sleep, and very mild too. I have a habit of staying up really late and after a week of bad sleep, I get some mild acne, which is perfectly normal from what I know. After I fix my sleeping schedule it all goes away.

He had never heard of Exfoliative Cheilitis. He was just sure it was Eczima. Anyway, I did a google search on Eczima and its WORLDS apart from what I have. My first time talking to a doctor about EC turned out to be a bad experience.
