Could be a cold sore: "cold sores" are usually caused by the herpes simplex type 1 virus. They respond to antiviral medications. If it's not healing, then an office visit may be worthwhile.

What method is there to get rid of red, itchy, dry lips?

Hydrate and protect: First, you have to make sure the tissues are staying healthy. The easy fix is to drink more water to hydrate from the inside, and wear a lip balm to protect lips from the environment (and keep moisture in). Next, eliminate the possibility that youhave an alergic reaction by noting if you get symptoms shortly after certain foods or gums. No relief, see your dentist or oral surgeon to assess. ...Read more

The area around my lips have been red, dry and itchy, also sometimes my lips will turn red and swell up, what could this be?

Contact rash: This could be from a minor allergic reaction to something you are eating/drinking or to a makeup/cream you are applying. More commonly, this is from lip-licking, which often becomes a habit and is irritating to the lips and surrounding area. You may want to keep a written log of when this is happening and what foods/creams you are using and when this flares up. See your doctor for possible treatment. ...Read more

I have a lighter completion developing around my lips area, nose and spreading towards the chicks. It's very dry, red, sensitive and itchy and at times looks as if it's cracking.

Confusing info: Usually lighter complexion means loss of skin pigment in a condition called vitiligo. But then you have dry, red, itchy lesions on the face and this may be from a condition known as rosacea especially if you flush easily although the pattern of spread is atypical. I think you may need to see a dermatologist to sort it out. ...Read more

Had impetigo and used mupirocin2% three weeks ago. Left with redness and lower lip is itchy but no signs of blisters. Is it back?

Had impetigo and used mupirocin2% three weeks ago. Left with redness and lower lip is itchy but no signs of blisters. Is it back?

Maybe not: If the redness is a little less (improving) each day, it may be "post-inflammatory" redness that gradually goes away after the impetigo heals. If crusting or oozing returns, then the doctor can look to see if the infection has returned. Many people get blisters on a lip that are cold sores, instead of impetigo. Cold sores are caused by viruses (mupirocin doesn't work on those viruses). ...Read more
