Well, I am seeing new skin every day (similar to GIAB), so it's definitely improving. I'll see what the next few days will be like.
As for the red dots, I guess so when they're "raw" but when I apply a moisturizer, they dissappear and get replaced with more grayish which obviously is the new skin. Aquaphor never gave me these good results but ever since GIAB everything changed for me. GIAB was the real game changer.
Don't wanna get ahead of myself but Im confident that my lips will be healed before the end of this month. Either by aquaphor or Gloves in a bottle. I think I have figured out how to apply GIAB so that it forms a barrier while the skin heals underneath but right now I'm going with aquaphor. I still prefer GIAB because it's much less effort and more reliable which means less stress but if aquaphor gets the job done, then that's fine.
