Jsl, I think I'm a little over four months right now. I'm still getting crusts, but it takes much longer to build up than it did before. The top lip took over two weeks to crust up this past time. Daniel Miller was also helped through this method, although he didn't start moisturizing until he was well into leaving them alone. When I used to get the bumps I would actually pop them, which caused a clear liquid to come out. They always hurt so I couldn't help but squeeze them.
