hi, i am very curious what is the longest each of you has gone leaving ur lips completly alone, please be specific as what you did. did you not get them wet or touch saliva to them for many weeks? did you take normal showers and get them wet but not touch saliva to them for many weeks? I will start off by sayed the longest i have gone without touching water,saliva, food and barely even breaking a smile was 3 1/2 weeks. After that long i saw no improvement, i would even say they may have gotten worse. i would also like to say ive seen the pictures of alot of you and some of you seem to not have as severe scarring as i have on my top lip. It really looks like im missing a chunk of skin on my middle top lip.
