1. No vaseline (it was the last stuff I put on my lips to "moisturize" them before my EC started. So vasiline might even have triggered my EC). Never put that stuff on your lips. If you need to, get something natural.
2. Please post pictures (when at their worst and how they look now). I think you said the other day that my lips actually looked very similar to yours, so I want to see! :)
Anyway, great that you're seeing progress. That makes me feel like I can do it as well (since you said we have similar conditions ;)). Unfortunately, I'm on something like week 13 leaving them alone, with no improvements.
