Rash on lip?

A couple days ago my upper lip suddenly became covered in tiny slightly red bumps. They're barely noticeable, but I can feel them, and my lip was also slightly tingly, numb in a way, and dry. I bought a medicated chapstick the next day, and then my lip started to "weep" clear fluid, I guess since they cracked. The fluid crusts over and is scabby? The day before this all happened, I was playing around with new lip makeup I've never used before, so I thought it could be an allergic reaction, but I'm not sure. Now my lips are dry and cracked and slightly painful. It was also slightly swollen at one point...my upper lip is the only area affected.

Hi, welcome to the forum, possibilities of lesions on the lips are herpes simplex- which usually presents with vesicles with clear fluids and is usually painful.  Precipitating factors include exposure to sunlight, trauma, and emotional stress.

The diagnosis is confirmed by identifying multinucleated giant cells on a Tzanck smear (these are also seen with varicella zoster virus infection), direct immunofluorescence smear, or by viral culture.

If present should be treated with appropriate course of anti-viral like acyclovir or valcyclovir against prescription. Otherwise chances of relapse are high.
Ice, popsicles can be used over lip to provide relief.

Another possibility is systemic lupus erythematosis- autoimmune disorder and involvement of other organs should be ruled out.

I suggest you to consult physician. Take care and regards.
