My lips are extremely sticky and have been since the candida symptoms started to rage (just because of the diet I think; I don’t remember doing anything else that would cause the candida to spread). I’ve had actual candida overgrowth since birth, but 2 years before it got obvious.
It looks unusual to me but I experience no pain whatsoever. Those lips are like glue and it gets worse proportionally to my candida symptoms (it is not due to any chemical exposure, I’m 100% sure about it) and it really causes problems with speaking.
My grandma says she’s seen Dr. Oz recommend coconut oil for dry lips and seen him hate on the conventional lip balms and similar stuff.
