Post blotchiness

ok!!!i give up!!i've had this bloody thing on my face since i was a little kid.i don't know what it is at all.it started in school 25 years ago as 2 huge red patches on the corners of the bottoms of both of my lips. i can't remember what i used to make it go away.every 8 or 9 years it keeps popping up again.this time it seemed to come up at first as 2 pimples in exactly the same spot.i thought well well i can deal with 2 pimples as long as they disappear-well they haven't.it's been 2 years now and i am going broke trying every single medicine the doctor can throw at me.even my dermatoligist says "i give up"-can you believe that?
now it seems like it could possible be stress induced or something.now it looks like something that might be related to shaving but i've had this problem even before i started shaving.next week i'm supposed to start taking nerve pills to see if this helps.does absolutely anybody have the same problem?this is not due to spicey food or anything my doctor says but rather something inside me-well what the heck is it?they've almost cured sarrs but they can't cure a small thing like this?the area under my lips is verrrrrrry hot but my cheeks are cool.any help from anybody is greatly appreciated as my doctors are still scratching their clooective heads!!!!!!!!!

Flouride has been known to cause irritations around the lips. Try making sure your toothpaste doesn't touch your face, or switch temporarily to a non-flouride brand to see if this is what's causing it.
