What I had failed to mention in the original message was a more definitive time-line.
That's because I was like everyone else, desparate and fedup with the lack of any success from the doctors I have seen. That being said I got more bang for the bucks when I started using the tea tree oil extract as an disinfectant of both the oral cavity and the toothbrush. I understand the angst on some parts of using tea tree oil, if possible you should be able to use grapefruit seed extact to act as an disinfectant/fungal killer.
I am here to tell you that there is some progress, I can actually see some wrinkled skin with speckled darker patches of cells. That seems to mean that I have to now address enhancing what I have and to not regress into the peel and cuss the sun for rising syndrome. Under the advice of the third dermatologist who din't listen to anything I had to say. I stopped using the topical steroid ointment and started using hydrocortisone ointment a 2.5% and Aquaphor healing ointment. Since I am a male I don't walk about in public with glossed over bare lips, NOT ME! So whenever I get the chance I first apply a heated wash cloth to the lips, then apply the Hydro 2.25% and immediately with a layer of Aquaphor especially before I got to sleep.
It has been 12 days, And there is so little scaling that is amazing. Lips are smooth and feel totally different. I hope this isn't me making a mountain out of a mole hill, but any progress after upto 3yrs of frustration is a blessing.
That's it for now will update in 7 days. Wish me Luck!
