I have a burning/stinging sensation on the skin of my upper lip, I have been out in the sun a lot lately, should I be concerned?

Happens: Funny enough, after a significant amount of sun exposure, I developed the same sensation on my right upper lip 2-3 weeks ago.

Possibly yes.: The nerve distribution is in the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve. You can get these type of sensations from something called trigeminal neuralgia. It means the nerve gets irritated.
If it gets worse or more frequent you can go to your doctor and get something to help calm down nerve rotation. ...Read more

My lips can suddenly be red and slightly swollen with burning/stinging sensation. It happens randomly. What might be the cause of it?

Contact dermatitis: I assume you are also applying OTC lip balms such as Carmen, aquaphor etc. These products hydrate your lips but paradoxically can actually perpetuate the problem if you are allergic to the fragrance or wool alcohol in these products. Try using pure Vaseline exclusively for the next week (which does not contain sensitizers) and see if it gets better. ...Read more

Had uti for 4 months white blood cells fowl smell feels need to push when urinating stinging sensation feeling negative std had 4 different antibiotis?

Complicated problem: This sounds much too complex to expect clear answers on a forum like this, especially with such brief questions and replies. Foul vaginal odor usually is bacterial vaginosis, not UTI -- but you could have both. If an infectious diseases specialist is not involved in your care, that probably is something to consider. Or, since you're in UK, maybe an NHS GUM clinic. Good luck! ...Read more
