Coarse and rough skin on upper lips, sick, tired, nausea, colder. What is cause and cure?

hi Dr. Samuel,
I have noticed since last two days that on my upper lip, on immediate right from the center line on upper lip, my lip skin has became very rough and coarse which I can feel very clearly. However, if I see in the mirror, the skin color is the same and thus, it looks mostly near to normal skin. I had this same problem before too. I think, this is the third time in past 8-9 months. I am also feeling like little sick and feeling, tired, nausea and colder than other people. Please help me understand my problem and its solution.

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

Roughness in the lip could be due dryness,local application of moisturiser might help.

As your history suggests roughness and course mucosa of lip. then it could be due to local fungal infection too.

I would advise you to see your skin specialist for this as it is recurring in nature.

Meanwhile do not touch or rub it ,as it can lead to secondary infection.

Local application of moisturizer might help till you visit your specialist.

Hope this helps.


Take care.
