Hi glad you're going to try it again.
1) Yes if I didn't drink with a straw and as exfoliation day got closer in the peeling cycle.
2)Yes, lips stop going white with the soak is a sign they are healing.
3)My inflammation was minimal as I was careful not to aggravate them.
4)About 5 to 10 minutes once or twice a week, its fungus is not going to go easily.
5) Am not following any diet but I suspect gluten intolerance to be the root of it as well as candida overgrowth.
6) Yes can get white tongue if I eat cakes, chocolates etc.
Best thing is and I have read those who say this is not a cure I no longer have to worry about them peeling or splitting when I've got an important event lined up.
Most of us probably have to address the yeast overgrowth issue as it can cause further problems in the future.
