(Did a search, couldn't see anything similar - please point me at it if I'm wrong!)
I've been paleo since July of this year, and it's been phenomenal for me on many levels. But I have this one irritating symptom that's kicked in recently - for the last two-three months, the skin on my lips seems to be shedding/peeling off - sometimes to the point of bleeding spots on the lower lips.
My lips aren't chapped or dry, I'm getting plenty of saturated fats & liquids, and I'm using lip balms to prevent the flakiness - ranging from straight coconut oil to MoistStic (w/coconut & tea tree oils) to a Burt's Bees tinted lip balm to one from Now (also with aloe/coconut oil/Vitamin E) that I just bought today. (Don't use petroleum-based or chemically-laden products, to my knowledge, anyway!)
I'm 95% Paleo - use dairy only as heavy cream in coffee or plain greek yogurt with walnuts occasionally, and am also supplementing daily: fish oil, Vitamins B, C, D, K, L-Carnitine & NAC (latter two just added within the last month). Just added Kelp today, thinking this might be another sign of an iodine deficiency (since I'm not getting iodine in my preferred kosher salt & am no longer eating prepared foods.)
Does this sound familiar to anyone else? Where should I start trying to figure it out? Thanks in advance...
