I'm glad to hear that you're getting some results with this method. The reason why I started this was also because my ec was self inflicted by picking and biting my lips. I believe those of us that have self inflicted damage to the lips can be healed this way. There also could be people who have similar symptoms but actually a different cause behind them. But yes this method absolutely takes a bunch of patience. You also have to be careful with knocking the crusts off of the lips accidently. I can't tell you how many times i accidentally knocked off a section to find red and painful skin underneath. Good luck going forward with this.
