Well, I guess I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. The diet didn't help as much as I thought it would. What seems to be helping the most is the peroxide/baking soda brushing. My lips are peeling in spots. The skin that isn't peeling is very hard and tight. Sometimes it's hard to smile. I've tried putting lemon juice on them but I'm not sure if it is helping. I'm also drinking lemon juice, but am still looking for results. I apply castor oil too.
The spots that do peel are growing the same hard skin. It's odd to see two layers of hardened skin over such a small area. All of the infected skin still turns white when wet. I thought I was making progress. I don't know what's happening now. Any ideas out there?
