I'm not sure if we have the same idea of inflamed, but when the white film comes off, it is most definitely raw. Right now, my lips look a little normal so I don't know if taking a pic will help you guys diagnose it. Since I'll be monitoring my progress, I do plan on taking pictures so I can show comparisons in the future for reference.
Yes I'm aware that leaving them completely alone will take a long time, even then, the leave alone method is not for everyone as far as I know. It's worth a try for me I guess since I'm on a gap year anyway so I only go out to the gym or when I'm bored at home.
Maybe my lips look "normal" because I gently clip off the excess growing skin from time to time and right now I apply aloe vera straight from the plant and it does seem to help. So far (1 week, 2 days) this is what's helping me. I don't know if switching to 100% leave alone would do any good but right now I won't completely leave them alone because what I do is helping, even if temporarily.
Yup that's exactly why I didn't opt to see one anymore, so anyway I'm still new to this site. I'm still a little confused on the layout, but anyway I'm assuming since you're here you are also suffering from this condition? Any luck, progress whatsoever?
