Burning and inflammation on upper lip before period. Cause?

Hi, my question is: every time, about 2 or 3 days before my period, I get this burning and chapped, very red inflammation on the line of my upper lip , on my mouth. My periods are regular, and this inflammation is sort of an indicator that the period is about to start. Usually goes away after few days into the period. What could be causing this ? Thanks
