Yes, basically. The conclusion the doctor and I came to after the appointment was that since when I was cured by the zyclara last year and had no herpes present in the lip cells, then the factor that must be keeping it alive this time is the active herpes which serves as the only trigger for this I've encountered so far. And he was pretty much saying that the herpes virus attaches to the cells in the lips, so even though there was no blister anymore, it was evident when the scab fell off that it was still present in the cells since it was still tingly and red, so that's why the wart virus had no way of dying yet even with the treatment. So I am praying hard that this herpes virus will become dormant again within a few more valacyclovir pills (which are very effective and supposed to be fast) and not active (which I could tell by it not being red and tingly) so that I can treat the wart virus under the correct conditions this 2nd time around and then it would have no choice but to stop being evil and go away. :) and also, you are very brave and dedicated to your method and its awesome to know that you're seeing progress! I'll be praying for everyone on here to find the answer for their peeling regardless of what it may be. Thanks for the support.
