Thanks for writing to us.

Itchy lesions on the lips is most likely due to dermatitis - can be allergic in origin or may be related to eczema. Avoid using any cosmetics on the area. Applying 1% hydrocortisone cream will bring the desired relief. If there is redness or discharge from the area, then you need to consult your dermatologist for management.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

It is allergic dermatitis. Take any anti histamin preparation of drugs with anti fungal application with consultation of your dermatologist
