Is it acne?: Is the "acne" entirely on the lip(s) or just at the junction of the pigmented portion of lips and facial skin?How long have you had it? What have you tried before? Have you changed your diet recently? Any acne elsewhere on your face? Have you seen your pcp/ or dermatologist? Good luck!
