This type of reaction on the lips is usually secondary to a contact or airborne (less likely systemic) allergen, so it is possible that you are reacting to something that you are more sensitive to in the summer. It's possible it can also be a form of eczema. Sometimes it's hard to know the cause. ...Read more

Something different: Is obviously happening while on school break that does not while in classes. Or perhaps you unknowingly lick or moisten your lips while concentrating in school, but do not do this while at home on holiday. Or your home has a better humidifier than the dry air at school.

The betamethasone is a potent cortisone which may cause perioral dermatitis and carries a risk of glaucoma+ cataracts if used on the face. Best is a calcineurin inhibitor ...Read more
