Hello so this is my first post and I am sooooo frustrated!!
Towards the end of January I had a mouth infection that at first we thought was oral thrush, but then discovered that it was
a staphylococcus aureus infection of some sort. The doctor gave me antibiotics and a topical cream, the cream cleared it up
so I was told to not use the antibiotics unless I needed to. So last week I had the same symptoms of burning and dryness all over the
outside and inside of my lips, I straight away took the antiboitics that the doctor gave me. It has now been two days since I have
finished the antibiotics and I still have the painful annoying burning around and in my lips. I have been using vasaline to stop the dryness of my lips as when I have the burning sensation (which is all the time) my lips get extremly dry and sticky.
I have researched burning mouth syndrome but I am 17 and I read that mainly people who are going through menopause get it? I don't know what to do to get rid of this feeling,
It literally feels like my lips are on fire constantly but especially at night.
I would be very grateful if anybody could give some advice, thanks!
