For a while now I have had this reoccuring rash on vermillion border of my bottom lip. I can see extremely tiny bumps and they itch like crazy. Medicated chapstick doesn't help. Also the skin where the rash is gets dark like purplish. I think it might be some allergy because this always happens when I buy cheap chapstick or flavored chapstick, and sometimes it happens if I eat greasy food and the oil stays on my mouth. The worst of all is that when I first got it. It made the right side of my lip swell and droop a little and it stayed that way! What is this? It only happens occasionally and is gone sometimes in a day or two or in a week so I never go to the doctor. But now I want some answers because I feel like if I scratch my lips they will swell and disfigure me. Can someone tell me if I can get rid of this or what I can do to treat it? What is this anyway?
