I really think you might be on to something with the Lysine. What dosage did you start of taking? I followed your advise and started taking it (2000 mg a day) last week. Don't know if it's coincidental because there's a few other things I'm taking, but my lip is really starting to take shape and develop the lines and grooves (well defined) like the the rest of my lip. My peeling cycle is usually every 3 days and they did peel again last night. But it seems with every peel they are developing more. I going to up my dosage to 3000 mg. Did your peeling stop immediately after taking it or did you have to adjust your dosage starting off?
