| | peeling lips... chelitis?
for as long as i can remember i've had chapped peeling lips.. but in the last few weeks it has gotten much worse
literally a thick layer of skin comes off every day, and the skin left underneath is raw and burning
the corners are cracked and red, and i'm experiencing loss of elasticity (it just feels really tight when i smile or do anything else to stretch my lips)
also, when they get severely chapped they get very smooth and shiny (and again, tight).. and burning and red i guess.. i don't really know how to explain it
i think they do sometimes swell a bit as well
does this sound like chelitis?
i've been taking vitamin B suppliments for about a week and haven't seen any difference... does anyone know whow long it should take to see an improvement if a defficiency is the problem?
i'm really worried, and any info on the subject would be greatly appreciated...
