There is a rough patch on my top lip and I feel it when I lick my top lip. It wont go away. My top lip feels and looks so weird now. What should I do?

If not a cold sore..: Some roughness and mild redness on a lip can be lip eczema, which may be treated like skin eczema, using hydrocortisone cream (twice a day for 1 week) plus Vaseline or Aquaphor to retain moisture. Sometimes lip balm or lip sunscreen chemicals cause an allergic reaction. Other times a person is a primary lip-licker (it's his habit). Once cracked, lips can get irritated by routine foods and juices. ...Read more

My lips are really rough often chapped and they peel after exfoliating too much.Also plumpier/bigger?Are they damaged?How to heal fast other than wait

My lips are really rough often chapped and they peel after exfoliating too much.Also plumpier/bigger?Are they damaged?How to heal fast other than wait

Protect the lips: Lips are "mucus membranes", which are sensitive and not "skin". Think of exfoliating the lips as causing a sunburn on the lips. They get damaged, and with repeated damage, may turn into that "weathered" appearance one might see in the lips of a 50 year-old life-long farmer or beach guy... Which might not be the "look" one is trying for. It really is best not to mess around with one's natural lips. ...Read more

My upper lip is rough and has black spots on it, wat's up?

Go to your MD: How long have you had black spots on your lip? It would be good to get a checkup with your physician. Oral pigmented lesions are more worrisome than those on the skin. If you are a smoker, stop smoking because smoker's melanosis is a common finding. A full history and exam are the best advice. Good luck.
