The images were taken about 20 minutes after I had brushed my teeth. The good thing is that they have yet to scab over and the mucosa on my lips is still pretty glossy with no white lining. My lips haven't scabbed over since the last time I got pretty sick sometime last year. And even then it was a very, very light amount.
Like I mentioned before, I feel that my lips are not 100% cured. However, compared to how they were before? These images I took today are like night and day compared to my lips before, especially after having brushed my teeth.
The way my lips are now is definitely progress for me.
