My lips peel every day, and i have a red in around my top and bottom lips of new skin when peeling lips is not noticable..however this lasts for a day then it dries out and peels again. i think i caught this from a girl i kissed one time. i have kissed a girl since and they contracted it from me and her lips now peel very badly.. i am very annoyed at this as i have tried. lip balms. (obviously wont kill the problem) hydrocortisone (prescribed from doctor - he doesn't think its contagious.. even though i know it is from facts) i have tried fusucidin cream (anti biotic) and deprobase is the latest and its an ointment. i used the steriod (hydrocortisone) daily as it makes my lips look healthier.. without anything my lips look terrible... how do i kill the bacteria/virus/parisite? whichever is causing me this never ending problem..
had this since February (day after i kissed the girl.. pus came on my lips like an infection had occured).. then a slight cut which seemed as if it was trying to heal.. and it never did.
Any help on this would be appreciated..
just about had enough of it & refraining from having girlfriends and kissing anyone because i wouldn't want to mess anyone up
looked up exfoliative chelitous... looks very similar to this. if that helps... however it states its not contagious?
I look forward to hearing any responses!!
