if you ask me i woud't mind if i have to remove the skin with either a pair of scissor or with the help of water. Does't really matter which way you do it. infact what i beleive and you might beg to differ, is that the reason the doctors say you should not remove it forcebly is because the lip might bleed which may add to some unwanted complications to the existing situation.
I think we need to spend more time in productively thinking about the solution to this nightmare. Because if you are hoping to cure this with ointments then you are on the wrong track.
There isn't a disease in this world that is caused without a reason.
Quote me; "IF WE GO AGAINST NATURE DISEASES WILL COME".
thats why i have diceded to not go against nature. (eg eating non veg, alchohol, smoking, oily food etc)
Oh forgeot to mention i have started doing yoga and i feel there is a gradual improvement and i'm so confident that one fine day i wake up and iwould be 100% allright....
