My saga of suffering with cheilitis begins and ends with the delightful duty of playing with my grandsons in the pool and at the beach. During a ten-month period from June 2017 to April 2018, I saw eight health care providers at five locations. I had six prescriptions and tried countless over the counter remedies. At times, I felt desperate, disheartened, disappointed and full of fear. Thanks to modern medicine and the wonders of patch testing, I learned what I am not allergic to. Thanks to caring doctors, their expertise, and the courtesies they extend to each other’s patients, I received some excellent attention and learned how to manage my condition.
