Lips now permanently damaged with 1000's of weird cracks, cheilitis, chapping, dark spots.
Unbelievably, I'd wake up and find the shapes and contours changed every day - a new grotesque effect daily.

After extensively researching this, and seeing many medical professionals, I have still not found a solution.
Severe Sun damage - over years - is the diagnosis most Dermatologists give.
Unfortunately, after the incident, dark spots broke out within a week; after that shading on the sides.
Then instead of smooth lips, a railroad crisscrossing of tissue - making me look like I was sun-damaged after 75 years sailing the sea, exposed by the elements.

The Incident-
So this involved lotion and a massage and a partner.
No conclusion yet, and my thoughts run rampant:
( none of these are spot-on, but I haven't disproved any of these either ):

Infectious Disease or
Fungal Disease or
Herpes or
Cheilitis (Irritant Cheilitis)

Relationship ?? It's not even an option like this.
I'd like to rule any of these out, if I possibly can.
Being contagious - and being with someone I care about, spreading something to them. This would not be a good situation!

It's not specifically dry, although it may look it; It is still soft tissue, occasionally chapping.
One natural Cheilitis treatment was an overnight application of Olive Oil,

I need one qualified Dermatologist, ID Specialist who can identify this, and help me treat it.
I prefer a National expert, if you have a reccomendation or referral.
