Lips And Red And Sore And Dry And Cracked And Flaky
Red rimmed lips. Tiny bumps near edge of lips and on lip. But near the edge. Not tingly or itching. But my lips feel dry. Doesn't look like sore.
Fordyce spots: If these spots are very small and don't bother you at all they are likely fordyce spots.

Use the cream again at the first sign of the rash coming back. ...Read more
