Yeah man I used it for about 3 days for the peeling to stop so what was left was just raw red skin on the lip. I feel like using Calendula and desonide in conjunction has done the trick. Because desonide restores the skin after calendula had got rid of the infection. So I guess 2 weeks on calendula and then 2 weeks on desonide is gonna do the trick. I'm on day 5 of the desonide and my lips look super normal aside from the awful white line on the bottom but its getting better day by day.
