I keep it moisturized with honey at night but other than that I leave it completely alone. I am surprised that you think I will have this for three more years I hate to say this to you but unlike you when I got this condition I didn't go around crying to derms and doctors I went to a doctor who told me to leave it alone.
I didn't leave it alone until about 3 weeks ago and did my research. I have improved my diet and stuck to the same workout and left the crust on. The first week I noticed almost no improvement the second week was crusts and by third week I garantee you that I am about 70% cured.
"I don't get it it's just the vermillion border trying to heal itself" Remember who said this? Yeah you. The reason it takes long is your lips are constantly under stress and you crusts are suppose to stay there for 30 days but they don't because they tear when you laugh chew or anything. And it takes 25-30 days for it to heal.
I don't where you are going wrong Vunk but all it takes is time and patience to heal this.
