he y daniel keep up the good work and be patient! some people took between 6-12 months to get cured and you have done 3 long years of bad stuff to your lips so keep your head up and i think its best to forget about time. just focus on seeing improvenments! also now that you completely let your crusts fall off natually how long are you peeling cycles now? also i get a little bit of fluid underneath my bottom scab dont think its anything bad and it certainly does not smell bad! i think its just like a normal scab your right but my fluid come and goes and is getting less and less! some days i go with no fluid what so ever!
