Hi, Portions of my top and bottom lips have become black colored, inflammed and highly sensitive. While unattractve, the burning sensation with toothpaste (Toms brand without whitener and no artifical coloring), many foods (spices?) and even warm water is a problem. I put vaseline & aquaphor lip repair (spf) on lips both often and very liberally. I do not smoke and only rarely drink alcohol or caffeine. I have an allergy and zyrtec corrects it (i.e. nasal swelling and rare burning eyes) but dont know what Im allergic to. Any tips?
