First off welcome to my life. I apply a thick coat of Aquaphor on my lips every single night to prevent them from peeling. And even that doesnt always work.
I have to use Aquaphor, Bepanthen the entire day to keep them moisturised.
And for someone who lived with this mess for a long time it surprises me that applying Vaseline over night is such a big deal for you.
My lips look just like yours, just without the vertikal lines.
"If I could have completely raw lips again I could just apply Gloves in a bottle and my lips would heal." Honestly, i dont think so. I remember all of your posts about that product and i dont think that YOU screwed it up. You literally said you had it on for days and days. I just think that EC is not curable, with or without a barrier.
Appreciate that your lips feel better and look normal. If you still wait for a miracle to end this shit, i think your Depression will go downhill pretty fast. Accept it and pray haha, sorry but thats all we can do.
And to answer your question: If you want to have Ec again?! than take Accutane.
