Our expert says:
Helen, it sounds like you might have a superficial fungal infection or a form of eczema called “dyshidrotic” eczema. The best would be to see a dermatologist and have it sorted out.
You can use a cream like Zovirax® or Activir® on your lips. You can also ask your pharmacist for an amino acid called l-lysine. It’s cheap and works wonders. Good luck.
