I know, I know. It seems absurd, but if heat really does heal wounds faster, or give it the things it need to heal THEN a blow dyer would be a good device to use. As you know a hand blow-dryer can give out very hot air, but i dont know. I just wanted to put it out there for discussion.
Also i beginning to think that the blood vessels in inner mouth are suppose to connect to the outer lips. If you look at the inside your lips (the part u cant see when mouth is closed) Look carefully & youll see your blood vessels, well i think those same vessels go towards your outer lips, but our were broken from all the licking, picking, & chemicals.
A few months ago i was playing basketball, & my lips got busted. There was a cut in my top lip, & cut on my bottom lip, along with a gash inside my bottom lip. Well the gash inside my bottom lip took the longest to heal, & i could see the blood vessels from each corner getting closer & closer as weeks went on. Finally the vessels joined & the gash was finally healed. (fyi:I had ec when my lips were busted)
Well now that i think about it, our lips are damaged in the same way! Before we can get the water proof skin, our vessels have to repair itself & join together. After that the the body will make the water proof skin, but until then its going to keep building skin to protect the vessels from any more damage.
So basically what im saying is the stage im at is the repairing of the vessels. & alot of you are past that stage & on to the water proof skin stage.
