Several weeks ago I spent the night in a hospital. I entered the emergency room with a horrible burning sensatin in my lips, they were swollen. Two years prior I had pericarditis (sp?), so the attending doc did not want to take any chances. All tests cam back normal, and I was put on prednisone for about a week. Within days of completing the prednisone, my lips began burning all over again. I went back to the doctor, and she prescribed an anti-fungal, as well as a herpes drug. Taking benadryl and alleve take away the burning and the pink around my lips. Once again, it's back, and it's very frustrating. Two different doctors have no clue, so they want to run more tests. Does anyone have a clue what the problem might be?
