Both the upper lip and bottom lip, it keeps peeling off and my lip feels uncomfortable because it feels like a peach fuzz on my lip. I tried applying Vitamin E oil, Burt's Bee's both original and medicated lip balm, menthol lip balm etc. and none of them worked. I also try to drink a lot of water, but it's not helping either. Also, there's a bump on my lip (i think i got that from kissing and its been years Ive had that) and the reg. doctor told me it's nothing serious but I don't know if that's causing it to make the lip skin worse or not. And I don't want to go to doctors many times because of the money. Would the dermatologist help more and do you think it will stop getting my lip worse?
I know that it is not a skin cancer. I just don't know what to exactly do because I tried many things, but none of them worked. The lip skin keeps peeling off little by little everytime. Do you think dermatologist would be able to help me more than the regular or the ear,nose,mouth doctor?
