Ok I worked out I missed 7 updates. Two were because I was away on holiday and the other 5 was because I got sidetracked and stopped updating this. While on holiday I used the calendula ointment which stops the peeling but does not really aid in healing.
For the past 1.5weeks I have been applying steroid ointment 0.5% called Eumovate.
Here is a before and after picture taking in the morning, one before brushing teeth, the other after.
I like to think that some of the vertical lines are developing, a littler deeper.
The yellowing is basically age. Some of the scabs have been on over a week. The middle part of the bottom lip peeled yesterday after the shower which is why it's not yellow.
This ointment is helping in disguising the scabs. I only need to apply it in the evening after brushing, and perhaps in the afternoon if I go out. I'm not sure if I am making progress this.
+ I am applying nothing except the steroid ointment at this time.
