  1. I used to have dry, cracked peeling lips constantly. I tried all kinds of moisturizers but nothing ever helped. And I always had huge chunks of skin peeling off my lips. In my case, the cause was simple although overlooked by everyone for years: mouth breathing. I habitually breathes through mouth rather than my nose, which dried out my lips. The dry lips would bother me (hard patches, cracking, peeling skin) so I'd lick them and bite them.... Making them more inflamed and more prone to cracking and peeling.... It was a vicious cycle.

  2. Oh wow. I feel so bad for you. I wish I could call your doctors and yell at them for you. Is there a specific reason you need a formal diagnosis?

  5. I don't have a definite answer for you, but I personally would stay away from any bbq but my own.

I have no idea if "burning off" gluten from a bbq grill would work, but I doubt it given some people have sensitivities to some distilled alcohols made from gluten-containing grains, and canola oil due to crop rotation with wheat, etc etc. For me, it would never be worth the risk.
