Hi, about 2 weeks ago I went to my doctor because both of my lips and lip corners were crusted and and I could hardly open them without it hurting and she said it was the herpes simplex virus and prescribed me Acyclovir. I also went to my dermatologist and she prescribed me Mupirocin and Desonide ointments, which I think is what helped it. It is now coming back slowly and my tonsils are red and swollen, also my tongue has a yellow tint to it now. Any idea what it could be?

Hi in the last few days my lips seem to have swollen a bit, best word I can think of, they have a red outline above and below and have at times felt quite dry and warm to touch, I did drink some orange juice, this isn t a rarity Idrink orange juice a lot and I m wondering if I have had an allergic reaction to the acidity in it, does this sound like it is the probable cause, I don t have a history of physical illness but I am under stress at work and have felt a bit run down in the last week or two, can anyone help, thankyou, Greg x

Hi, I thought yesterday that my lips had just become used to my lip balm and thats why they were so dry feeling, but I woke up this morning and my upper lip is a bit more swollen than usual after waking up. Now, especially my upper lip is swollen/puffy, not red, slightly numb feeling, and feels really dry like having severe chapped lips but they re not cracking. My dad thinks its an allergic reaction and I did get a new lip balm a few days ago but I avoided putting any on after about 3 pm yesterday.
