I just don't see how you can say you didn't make progress while leaving them alone, just because no part of your lips had completely healed yet.
I mean I just looked at your old pictures and you went from having crusty nasty lips, to just tiny flakes and your lips look 85-90% better. I just dont understand. Your lips look great now, even though I know they just peeled etc.
How do you know it didn't have to get even thinner before it started shrinking and parts started to get completely healed? I just don't think there's any way you could know that.
If I were you I would start leaving them alone again considering the OBVIOUS progress. I just don't think that you can say that just because parts didn't completely cure, you weren't progressing.
But they are your lips and your obviously entitled to your own opinions and treatments.
Also could you tell us the name of the medications your doctor just gave you?
