Middle, outside bottom lip developed a rough patch. No pain or tingling but not much feeling. Only slightly redder than lips. Started 3 days ago?

Nothing else: At the least you're describing PARESTHESIAS of the lips but it certainly is a bit odd that it should be occurring just over the left 1/2 of your lips continuously. No facial droop on that side, drooling from the left corner of the mouth, difficulty closing the left eye? If yes, then, you may have a mild Bell's palsy. If not then, maybe getting some blood work would be indicated to check things. ...Read more
