Well, I guess the entire topic of this post has been ignored. The reason why I haven't done the leave it alone method again is because I have a job and college on my plate right now. It would be very difficult to let my lips go like that and face people every day. I don't know why you are saying that I have nothing to base it on when I already stated that I had this condition before and healed it that way. You need to read more thoroughly next time. And alright, maybe it is not THE ONLY WAY to cure it. Maybe for some people the condition is not caused by themselves introducing trauma to their lips. when their body is causing this, then maybe they need some other way to heal it. However, I know that I caused the trauma to my own lips by picking at them. I picked off the skin that was there to protect my lips. Now it is regrowing continually in order to repair the damage. Also, I believe Daniel's lips have made progress. Just because some people tried it for a few months and then got impatient doesn't mean that it doesn't work. I'm not here to step on anybody's toes. I'm not going to apologize either though. I only stated what I believe to be the truth.
