Okay.. I need some help!
This started at the beginning of September, when I got a lip rash that stayed for a week. It started small, just one one area of my lip as small red bumps, which tingled and itched and soon spread to the rest of my lips. Sometimes the bumps break open and then crust, sometimes they dry and peel, sometimes they're just red bumps.
What you need to know:
It comes for a week, then is gone for a week before returning for another week, etc. (it is a vicious cycle)
I have never had any lip problems before the first occurrence of this rash
The rash has been, at one point or another, on every area of my lips (outside only)
There are no irritations inside my mouth
The rash does not spread past the boundaries of my lips
There are no rashes anywhere else on my body
I have introduced no new things to my body (no change in diet, toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, lip balm, living situation, people that I come into contact with, medicines, etc.); nothing new except for this stupid lip irritation
It is not contagious - my fiance has not gotten any of this from me, he has experienced no symptoms
I feel perfectly fine, except for the tingling/itching/burning/discomfort of my lips
my lips sometimes swell when the irritation is present
