chapped upper lip, body aches, whole family

two days ago my 13 year said her lips were really chapped feeling. yesterday i felt very achy and tired all day with extremely chapped feeling upper lip. In the middle of the night I got up with hot flashes and cold sweats and my upper lip hurting immensely. at this point i find my 13 yr old saying she has the same symptoms as well as she is very nauseated. this morning i notice that my (and hers) upper lip only is swollen, we both ache with loss of appetite. we both take allegra and ibuprofen which i don't think helped much with the symptoms but maybe some. My daughter actually wound up throwing up and now has a 100.1 temp. this eve i finally got her to eat a little bit. my other 12 year old also has a very "chapped" tingling and sorta itchy upper lip. I noticed my baby who is 16. months old rubbing her mouth with her shirt and in a very grumpy mood all day. One other common symptom me and my 13 year old are a small patchy rash on our chins. We have no major food allergies, have not eaten anything our of the order nor do we use makeup regularly. I was convinced we had a similar allergic reaction until my other two daughters have the same lip issues. Now my 13 yr old has a temp and after scouring google i still can't find anything similar... we need help!

Hello,
Such symptoms which involve the whole family can be due to viral infections and since your child is running fever and having a rash, it looks more like viral infection to me. For dryness of lips, avoid licking the lips as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before. Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips.

For the viral infection diagnosis, please get an evaluation done from a pediatrician.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
