I didn't have something different than other people on this forum. It's clearly EC from the pictures (what else would it be?). and my peeling cycle changed constantly as they healed. Never did I leave the skin on for a few weeks nor did I state that anywhere in my post. the cycle increases as I went along because the peeling gets thinner. At the end, my lips would peel off every day. If it's internal, go to the doctor! Surely, they'd be able to find SOMETHING right? Again, to anyone who left them alone and it didn't work, you probably didn't do it long enough.
