skin condition on upper lip
lady1001 posted:
I was diagnosed with blepharitis on the outer corners of both eyes about six months ago, which is managable since not using makeup aanymore. Now, for the last few months, I have had a progressively worsening condition on my upper lip that simulates the blepharitis. It is very dry, scaley-peeling skin, and my lip feels like its being drawn up like a purse string. The only thing that has made it feel better has been the erythromycin ophthalmic ointment that I use on my eyes during a breakout. I fear that it could be skin cancer as I had basal cell removed from my nose in 2004, but it doesnt look like that at all. Please give me an idea of what it could be. It appears to be spreading across more of my upper lip, so that is when I tried the ointment. The skin of the lip is also tight when I smile or try to move the lip. Your help would be so appreciated! Thankyou!
