Moustache area swollen and burns. Not an allergy. Home remedy?

Good evening, I'm 35 years old and for the past two weeks where my mustache is its swollen and it burns all the way to where my nostrils are... sometimes I feel like is numb.. I have no bumps or any type of sores... I haven't changed the way I eat so I know it cant be allergies to something I have eaten.
Please let me know what are the possibilities.. I work long hours and most up to 7 days a week. I have no time to be going in to the clinic. if there is something I could do at home I would really appreciated.. thank you

There can be different things which cause the burning sensation that you describe.
Dryness and fungal infections sometimes cause this symptom and some sort of allergy also.
Applying aloe vera gel has anti bacterial and anti fungal properties.
Applying ice wrapped in a soft towel or cold compresses on the affected area is one of the simplest way to get relief.
