Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted your history and understood the concerns.
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
- Take equal amount of pure honey and Vaseline/lip-guard, mix it apply apply 'gently' on the affected area 2 -4 ties a day. Do not massage.
- Take Lycopene with multivitamins, mineral and trace element in capsule form from local pharmacy/medical store.
- Avoid exposure to direct sunlight with a cap when in sunlight.
Do this regularly and you will find a good difference within 3 weeks - continue on and give me the feedback.
