I have developed a dull red patch at the spot where I had a yello centred small ulcer on lips. Is it normal?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes..

When an ulcer is in the process of healing, inflammatory cells congregate along with small blood vessels and they can cause a persistent redness.
It may take some time to fade...months to a year or more. Vigorously protect from the sun...this area can burn easily.
