On and off tingling/burning/redness on lips, the sensation fluctuates from lips and chin. Hoping it is anxiety. Longest is 2 hours. No blistering?
So, there's something: Anxiety is not the cause of. I was beginning to think one could blame the '08 financial crisis on it and Climate Change too! Actually, anxiety may have a role, but not in the way that means you should ignore it. It's possibly a type of hives and in the mouth area, you probably need to watch it for spreading or getting worse - if it even begins to, get to an ER. Take a benadryl (diphenhydramine) and pay attention. ...Read more

Herpes zoster?: If all blsiter-like lesions and rash are strictly on one side of the body's midline, then the best bets are either herpes zoster (shingles) or recurrent herpes simplex, probably type 2 (HSV2).

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
