I tried it once. It deffinately had an instant effect on the area, but I wasnt sure if I wanted to go throught with it. I cut a lemon and just stuck it right on my lips. It burned and the lips became really smooth but stiff. It formed this stiff skin all across the affected area. What was weird was that the skin though i could feel it was dead and heavy, showed no discoloration and no lines. It was like a really nice looking scab. It was really on there too. I didnt peel it off till like 5 days. I usually peel everyday. It didnt want to come off but on the fifth day it was looking worse and i didnt like the feel of it so i peeled it off. It was really hard to peel off and the skin was remarkable thin. I have no conlcusion about it except that its one of the few things I have tried that actually effects the condition. That and taking the fish pills which seemed to make the skin more connected and smoother. I would be interested to see som1 use the lemon and not peel for a while and see what happens. I think lemons do somthing not because of vit c alone but they have high citric acid which I think kills stuff. Lemons are umm very strong medacin just do a search on wikipedia I found this. O and it turned the inside of my mouth aounfd the lips white.

Some sources state that lemons contain unique flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties.
I mean if lemons disinfect deter cell growth in and have vitamin c that promotes collogen growth it seems to be the three things our lips might need.
