Lips disappearing

My lips are disappearing and i am only 26 they burn they get dry . it starts of with one side of the lips they dry out and finally turn into regular skin. Then the lips look uneven so then the other side starts .... I have no top lip at all it disappeared ...   I used all kinds of moisturizers but nothing work.... And when i go to doctors they luff at me .. And they never told me what is going on with them ...I still have some of my bottom lip but the same thing is happening...

So can someone tell me whats going on with my lips

You seem to be having cheilitis. Firstly, It can be due to vit B deficiency. Take some vitamin B complex for some days and see if your symptoms improve.
Secondly, it can be due to atopic dermatitis or eczema("Atopic" refers to a group of diseases where there is often an inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever). Cheilitis(Inflammation of the skin on and around the lips)is often seen in atopic dermatitis.Diagnosed by blood test like RAST. Treatment is by topical steroids or oral therapy of corticosteroids in severe cases. Topical creams like tacrolimus ointment and pimecrolimus cream are also useful.

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 doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

**** that B Complex, if you're lips are "disappering" and you went to a "specialist" and he luffed at you, **** him, go to another, it can be a serious problem, worse than cheilitis.Go quick and don't waste time with a forum.
