We all do what strikes us at the moment for this. What I did might sound whacked, but it COMPLETELY resolved the peeling lips in under 3 days. You ready? Well, I had a GOOD quality Colloidal Silver I used to treat my toe fungus, and decided to pour some in a small lid. I then pursed my lips and let then soak in the silver for about 30 minutes (awkward, but I was desperate). Pain relief was almost immediate - and lips were 90% healed in under three days. now they are totally healed BUT I do soak them like this every 2 weeks.
