How to treat tingling sensation on lip?

Hi there, Not sure if you can help. I had a tingling sensation on my lip. I thought it may be a coldsore however it never turned into one. My lip felt like it had a blister and would feel a little tingly/tight every so often but it wasn t sore, just annoying as it would flair up every so often and this has been over the last week. I don t take anything except a ventolin inhaler, have not been sick or anything in some time, eat a good variety of fruit and vegetables too.

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a herpes simplex virus.

I suggest using anti inflammatory medications to relieve the symptoms such as Ibuprofen.

I also suggest using Acyclovir cream in case of soreness.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contappct me again.

Kind regards!
