Hi Guys

I have just developed the same problem of lips that develope this whitish stuff when they get into contact with water or any drink or food. Then the soaked white stuff is tempting to peel off and looks nasty.  Am really worried. Can any one or Doctor please tell me what i can do? waht are the causes and how can i manage it. Please advise me on any medication i can buy over the counter. What disease could this possibly be?

Hi All,

I have the same problem. It started 2 years ago and nothing helps. It may be due to stress as I was studying for finals at the time. However, it continued on even after I finished finals.

My lips peel off every other day or so. Is there nothing to cure this problem?
