rash and blistering on vermillion border of my lips

For about 4 months now I have had severely chapped lips. The vermillion border of my lips is bright red and extremely itchy all around. I have had to put aquaphor on literally every 30 minutes so my lips don’t get dry and itchy. A couple days ago I went to urgent care and was prescribed two topical creams, one that was anti fungal and one that was anti bacterial. I was told to put both on at the same time three times a day. This immediately made my lips exponentially worse. A rash has formed around my entire mouth and chin and my whole top lip has small blisters. The vermillion border is also much more red and my lips are discolored and splotchy and I can’t sleep because it’s so itchy. I have no idea what this is or how to fix it.

If the problem was made worse by the prescriptions, you need to let the doctor know what happened.  So I'd first, give them a call and ask them what they would like you to do next.  It's very important any reactions you have are reported.
