I have been using Calendula officinalis ointment 10% for about 2 months (3-4 times a day). With its use my lip has stopped peeling and improved a lot. However... it continues red (in the area which it touches the upper lip) and inflamed. I'm also using Bepantol derma. I am wondering which brand of calendula you have and if you are still applying it (and if you remain symptom free).
