I did start drinking milk again for about a week. Since my lips were improving, I was drinking it all day...too much to handle at first if you haven't drank milk in awhile. I stopped because I got a stomachache. Later. a doctor told me people who haven't drank milk in awhile often become intolerant to it, but they'll become tolerant again int time. Also, you should drink at 2% fat milk instead of skim milk. Since then, I forgot to go back to milk.
