Dental prep: Do your lips itch or burn? This is an essential piece of information to begin a discussion. Having said that, I would first scrutinize any substance you used on your mouth ranging from toothpaste, mouthwash etc. Do note that the reaction may not occur until 24-72 hrs after contact. If problem persists and especially if associated with itching consult an allergist ...Read more

Most people would assume you mean cold sores which can be brought on by the stress of physical illness but just as often just appear. If that's what you have then they would always occur in the exact same place, are not serious, but if occurring more than once or twice per year can be treated and prevented with medication. ...Read more
