Lips burning: Have allergies? Did it occur after you ate something? shellfish? May be allergic reaction, or autoimmune response or herpetic lesion- but that stays for a week. Would carry a benedryl on you ( if not allergic to benedryl) in case it reccurs, for herpes can take lysine 500 mg 3 tabs a day. x 1 wek then 1 tab a day x 1 month. But most important: call your doctor today or go to ER
