Have it helped?
I have not noticed any significant improvement so far. The only thing I have noticed is that the skin underneath the peeling skin might be less raw than before.
I was very hesitant to try Protopic as I wrote in this post. Luckily enough I have not been noticing any of the scary side effects (not even the very common burning sensation). On day 3 my lip felt slightly numb though, and on day 5 I felt a ticklish sensation on my lip when touching it with a cotton swap. Other than that, nothing.
Current peeling cycle
My current peeling cycle looks like this: the skin builds up like before over the course of 1-3 days. On the forth day I can usually peel everything off without too much force. On day 5 and 6 my lips look their best. Day 7 it all starts over again. Sometimes this cycle differ a little.
I have not got any treatment time limit so I will have to book a phone meeting with my doctor and ask. Until then I will continue using Protopic.
Not so good day.
