I have something going on with my lips & it's driving me insane. I'm hoping someone might have some ideas/ suggestions. I have never had cold sores, etc. and the symptoms don't seem to fit the bill, but of course that's all Google can think of. ;-)
It started in April while I was on vacation in TX with my husband. I woke one morning to what looked lije a white head on my upper lip. No pain, no itching, no burning, just a whitehead that I pinched and it swelled immediately but was gone by the next day. Since then, every time I make out/ have sex (a lot of kissing) with my bearded husband, I get a whitehead in nearly the same spot with the same scenario. One whitehead. I pinch. It's gone in a day or two.
During the past month, I have noticed that the area around my mouth - mainly corners - burn a little, but there's no redness, no swelling, no bumps/ pimples.
I keep thinking it has to be an allergy. I have no idea what it could be to. I have changed toothpaste, I've stopped using ChapStick (I used to be obsessed with the original black tube stuff, but stopped when this started in April). I've considered a fungal issue, but I don't see any signs. It's just weird...irritating...and unnerving. Help! :-)
