Yes, I understand that. But you still can't go without water or aquaphor every couple days. Some others who tried this still got the white film line on lips. I think that's the most annoying part. I didn't mind the painful chapped/peeling lips as much as that white film.
But you should still get bloods tests and other diagnostic tests because you wouldn't need to take extra care to lips unless something was off. You might have a nutritional deficiency without the malaborption problem I had. I know other people's lips have also healed while taking B vitamins, but that never helped my lips. It could be other vitamins/minerals besides the ones affecting me. My deficiencies affected my immune system.
It's great to have naturally soft and pain-free lips again. That's what I want for others here, too.
