lips

Hi,
A few weeks ago I started getting a rash on my lips and this is accompanied by itching. After about 3 days or so, my lips would get dry and start peeling. Last week a black spot appeared where the rash was. This would occur in 1 week then disappear and return again. While the lips are dry they would also feel tight as though they are pulling. I thought it might have been an allergy but i'm eating everything i'm accustomed to. I went to the doctor and he said he didn't know what it could be but gave me an antifungal cream. Can you help me? I miss my normal lips and i'm sick of the peeling. Also, what can i do to get rid of the black spot. Thanks

Hi,

You need to drink plenty of water and also keep your lips well moisturised. Apply a medicated lip balm with a sunscreen to avoid damage due to the sun.

If your lesions still persist, it would be best to see a skin specialist for a confirmed diagnosis and to rule out any other cause of the spot.

Are you allergic to any substances? What symptoms do you have other than the lip lesion? What is your age? Do you smoke?

Let us know if you have any other doubts and also about what the specialist advises.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

I had the same issues with dry cracked lips also itching and small blisters, I found out from the Allergist that I could be experiencing Contact Dermatitis which can be caused by all sorts of things such as perfumes cosmetics/ lip glosses, nickel, dyes, rubber etc. It was recommended that I go to the dermatologist and get "Patch Testing" done to see what's causing the reaction and I will be going soon, I will come back and let you know what the results are, Hope this helped someone.
