i don't know if you read any of my earlier posts but I think I can relate to you the most, I was NEVER a lip biter and one day that top middle lip peeled off and it's left a scar/gap/whatever-the-fuck-it-is plain and noticable. My bottom lip was fine then, and this was five days before I got out of jail (which i had been anticipating for eight months). Dude, you couldn't imagine how depressed I got, I was (am) a very social guy, and my girlfriend stayed with me the entire term of incarceration and I was so pumped for summer so I could live it up again. AS SOON as I got out I started to desperately search for a healing aid, came across vitamin E oil, used that and bam, the fuck do u know, my bottom lip became affected. ***WHOEVER USES VITAMIN E OIL STOP!!** I also lived like that on a day to day basis, refusing to go out to eat, constantly going to the bathroom, white shit poppin up, I lived like that for about a month and a half until I started to realize that I have to much to let this shit affect me. If anything use it as a reminder that there is so much suffering in this world on a scale unimaginable to us. Look at them poor kids in third world countries born with cleft lip. I prayed a lot for acceptance and I've found that they key IS acceptance. There's no reason why this shit's gotta ruin you. It might slow you down a little bit but theres no reason why it should inhibit you. Fuck dude, like I said I can relate to your shit, and I will say that my quality of life has improved dramatically. I have an amazing girl who doesn't give a fuck about my lips, and I don't let this stop me from going out. It gets better and easier to deal with. Dude, fuck trying to let them heal and shit. Exfoliate when you need to. This shit ain't goin away. I'm happy and content as could be and I don't think about my lips no more, I just try to think of it as a blessing rather than a curse. This shit ain't nothin.
Dude, use Burt's Beeswax. Well, it works wonders for me. It almost completely conceals this shit, and it is easy to exfoliate when you want.
