Thanks a lot for your message. I bought gloves in a bottle and am currently trying it out. Just something I have been doing lately which might help you since it helped me a bit. I read hospitals sometimes treat burn victims with this method called moist wound healing. I read a case history where a woman had a big portion of her lip bitten off by a dog and to treat her the hospital put Vaseline on her lips and then applied cling film on top. Since I can't handle aquaphor right now but I need to do something to increase the hydration in my lips, I started cutting a square of cling film and sticking it over my lower face so it adheres to the lips (it sticks on by itself so there is no real need for tape). It helps to keep the moisture locked into your lips because it prevents the moisture from evaporating but it has the benefit of not softening and causing the skin to peel off too early. Obviously you can't do this in public but if you are around the house most of the time like me it's a solution of sorts.
