About a month ago, I started hearing a sound in my ear like a rapid pulse. My ear was tender (not anymore), but still hear it almost every day. At the same time, my lips became swollen and red, feeling like it was blistered from sun (have not been in sun). They peeled, but have continued to be red, dry and peel over and over. I normally have problems with fluid in hand and legs, but try to watch amount of intake.
