White dead skin on inside lower lip
phslattery posted:
I occasionally bite my lower lip when anxious or stressed. I can't remember if that's what happened or not, but what I thought was just a swollen lip has turned into a big patch of white gunk that I'm assuming is dead skin. It's been like this for two days with no change other than the swelling going down. I think it's just dead skin because it won't just scrub off, but it won't peel off like dead skin normally does. Did I just chew too hard during a test and this is just my lip healing or should I be more worried? Thanks!
