I tried acupuncture during my summer break. I went to someone who was a acupuncturist, chiropractor, and also used to be a doctor in a chinese hospital. Underwent some seriously painful sessions for 5 weeks but it didn't improve my lips. After a couple of weeks of no results he admitted he couldn't heal me because he didn't know what was wrong and told me that only a doctor who has successfully cured this lip condition before could help. He told me to post pictures of my lips online to look for a doctor who has treated this condition before but I'm pretty sure I can't find anyone.
