well i have to say my lips are definitely different after the acupuncture. let me say first that i was skeptical about the acupuncture and only went because my mother wanted me to. i am not really into naturalistic or alternative medicine. but my lips are definitely different. by today they would have started building up but they havent. they are still a bit red but not nearly as much and parts of the edges of the redness has turned pinkish! i am telling you this is crazy.
jsl just because something doesnt work for you doesnt mean it wont work for anyone else. i think it all depends on what caused this for you and whether you are treating it correctly. i think mine is wound and by the acupuncturist decreasing inflammation and perhaps allowing my body to more efficiently heal, it could help it heal. but you shouldnt tell people what will and wont work. you dont know any better than anyone else on here. and we really all know nothing.
