At this stage in my life after two plus decades of practice my eczema is largely under control. I have various potions and creams from the pharmacist, French skin care secrets I turn to when times are bad and the drive to constantly moisturize my skin with non scented lotions such as Cetaphil. Unfortunately one area continues to be a problem: my Cupid's Bow.
You may have noticed a lack of face of the day photographs and or lip swatches. This has nothing to do with self-consciousness (hell, I've been walking around with eczema for years I have nothing to hide!), but the fact that I quite literally have not worn a lip product apart from balm in weeks! My upper lip gets so red that the pigmentation of my lips practically appears to be extended into my Cupid's Bow: again, not particularly pretty but definitely uncomfortable. No balm, prescription cream or concoction can kick this pesky painful spot!
So I put it to you Getting Cheeky readers, fellow eczema sufferers and closeted skin care experts, what are your suggestions? Do you suffer from a similar problem? How do you keep your worst flare ups under control?
