Red, inflamed!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I’ve had red, inflamed lips for 3 weeks. Went to my dermatologist, who gave me a topical steroid. That seemed to help at first, but quickly flared up again. I’ve eliminated all lip products except for coconut oil & switched from Toms Toothpaste to Dr Bronners. I need some relief....please help!

    Do you have a picture of your lips?

    If you're not allergic to honey, you may want to try applying a thin layer of it on your lips and see if it helps.

    or you may dilute it in some water then use a cotton pad, dip it in the mixture of honey & water and place it on your lips..

      Unfortunately no picture I took was high quality enough. I’ve tried honey....I’m not allergic but it doesn’t take the redness away. Thanks for the suggestion!
