Lip not healing

Thanks for the reply on posting 3620. The ulcers are in the middel of the lips. It start with a scar on the lower lip and after a few days it spread to the upper lip. The ulcers are always only in the middel of the mouth, and do not appear on any other part of the lips.

After a few days it look like a haematocele, wich often come of on a coffee mug, but does not heal. The colour is a dark red, like a scab of a wound. It is not very painful, more uncomfortable when eating.

I judge the size on the lower lip to be 5 mm and the upper lip about 10 mm.

Hallo Ina
It may be due to an auto immune disease like pemphigoid or angina bullosa hemorrhagica - try a cortisone cream on it (like Betnovate cream)?
