I am not sure if anyone has this problem... I've had it for about 2 years and it has been continuous for two years. My lips are pink/red and feel as though the top layer of skin has been ripped off my lips.... also the skin around the outside rim of my mouth is extremely itchy. My lips are also extremely sensitive to citrus fruits and spicy foods ...I saw a dermatologist and he just told me to use aquaphor and a strong hydrocortizone...he also said that i have chelitis/dermatitis due to a food allergy i stopped eating citrus fruits and putting on lipstick.. and although they help slightly, they just coat and don't heal. I also occasionally have little tiny bumps all over my plump lips :) It doesn't look as painful as it feels, which is a good thing being a 25 year old female, but they still hurt nonetheless....I haven't been able to kiss my boyfriend for 2 years and they even hurt when my hair touches my lips.. I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but if you know of a cure... please please please help me :) I am desperate :) Thanks so much :)
