For a long time I picked the skin of my lips. New skin would come with a white appearance. I then picked this layer off (with fingers, paper etc.) because I didn't want to go out with white and uneven lips. I was rough with the skin, and it would become red and maybe bleed sometimes.
Now this has become a big problem for me. The skin will constantly renew itself. It goes in cycles. A layer of new skin comes, and after a while it falls off. Right before it falls off it is white and kind of swollen. The layer is often very thick. When it falls off, the skin underneath looks even and good, but the cycle starts again. This looks very bad.
How can I stop this? Is it a diagnosis for this? I've tried not touching my lips at all for a long time. I've tried lip moisturizers. Nothing seems to help.
