My upper lip suddenly looks and feels burnt. not in the sense of pain or swelling but in tightness. I have no knowledge of anything I did or ate or drank to cause the problem. My lower lip is unaffected and I have no other symptoms. It started about two weeks ago. My upper lip was completely contracted and dry. Then it got darker and I was soon able to rub off most of the darkened, charred skin. But two columns remained in the middle of the lip, looking like third degree burns without any associated pain. But the sensation of tightness remains through out my upper lip.

Hello Doc. I have had an accident and had a cut on my upper lip. It was split and had to be stitched, 2 stitched from the outside. It has healed but I have a bump on my upper lip and now they don't have a proper lip line and has left a scar on the upper lip extending almost till my nose. Is there anything that can be done to heal it fast and will the lip line look normal again or will it remain the way it is?

doctor1 MD

Hello
yes your lip may look normal , but if there is prominant scar than you will have to consult to a plastic surgeon.
now you will have to wait for healing.
if there is finely stiched it leaves very minimul scar , and may not need plastic surgery.
Plastic surgery will brings your skin will...

I have had 2 seperate episodes this month were I wake up and my upper lip is tight, kinda tingly. Its very annoying cause it lasts for like 5 days and it starts peeling. More on the left side. I don't believe it is a sunburn. At first I thought a chemical type burn cause the first time it happened I had spray painted something. Then the next time I had cleaned the tub with scrubbing bubbles and the next day my lips was weird again?
