Hi, I'm not peeling my lips either. I'm on day 10 now of not peeling but always keeping them moisturized. Throughout the day I use coconut oil and then at night I use manuka honey. So far I do have crusts on my lips but it seems as if the bottom portion is beginning to heal. It's only day 10 though so I might be jumping the gun a bit. As far as pain goes I do have a little bit but not much. It's also very important to drink a lot of water. I drink through a straw and I try not to let food touch my lips. I'll put pictures up soon I've just been kind of lazy about it.
