Red and swollen lips, difficulty opening mouth, burning, itchy. Remedy?

I am suffering from a condition from the past 3-4 months, where my lips have turned red and is swollen. There is extreme difficulty in opening my mouth and when I try to do so the surrounding area of my lips gets cracked and there is puss like fluid which comes out. Whenever I eat something there is a burning sensation and sometimes it is itchy as well. Please let me know what this is and the remedy for the same.
