one day i woke up with the inside of my lips hurting and felt like i had a 'film' over them, they were also sensitive to spicy/hot food, the next day the outside of my lips were chapped and soar! they will not heal i use chapstick 24/7 the inside still feels like theres something covering the skin and my outside lips are still chapped and burn, they arent red. should i see my doctor, what could this be?
Is the skin on the inside of your lips loose if you rub them with your tongue? Sometimes my toothpaste or mouthwassh makes the skin raw in my mouth and after a few raw the skin becomes white loose and rubs off. If I eat foods that have alot of vinegar in them the same things happens but I loose the skin on my tongue and roof of my mouth.
Your lips shed their skin too. This might be happeing to you.
I don't think it's anything serious. It takes my mouth a good week to week and 1/2 before it's back to normal after having acid foods. Especially after vinegar and salt chips. My tongue turns white, peels in sheets then the roof and sides peel and lastly my lips. If a dentisit or a regular GP can make you feel better I say make an appointment.
the outside isnt as chapped at before the skin just feels tight and my inside lips feel like this film is over it and they feel/look indented in spots when i pucker my lips. i was on antibiotics for 2 weeks could that be a side effect of the meds , my last dosage was friday. i guess i will make an appointment, i was just wondering if anyone has an idea for me
