Please help. For two years now I've had a huge problem ever since I got together with a man I adore. Every time I kiss him passionately, a rash forms on the skin around my lips. It gets very red and itchy, and it burns; the next day blisters appear, and two days later the skin under my lower lip cracks in several places and the both sides of my mouth crack open. It is extremely painful and lasts about a week. We kiss passionately only every two weeks or so because of our long work hours. I can't stand this pain. The burning is severe and constant. I go through a container of Carmex every day and have to pile it on to get even some relief. On my worst days I look like a monster. I've gone to seven different doctors, four internists and three dermatologists. The only advice I've ever gotten is to drink water and keep my lips moist. Well, this doesn't work. I need help.
