How To Treat Itchy, Swollen, Sore, Rough And Blackened Lips?

Hello Hutri, thank you for the question.
The use of beauty products and facial care must be very careful. Sometimes a product that is suitable for use by others, not necessarily suitable for you. Before you decide to use any product, make sure first:
The product is registered and has the original BPOM number. Good quality. Not illegal. Not expired. Observe the composition. Avoid products that contain hazardous ingredients such as mercury, high-dose hydroquinone, or high-dose formalin. Make sure the product has a pH that matches the skin. The normal pH of the skin is acidic, around 4-5.5. Avoid products that have artificial fragrances. Choose the product that suits your skin type. As much as possible, choose products that have organic ingredients or have a composition of ingredients that are not too many kinds. When you use a product, irritation or allergic reactions might occur. This condition is indeed unpredictable, especially if you have never before experienced an allergic reaction.
Based on the description of your symptoms, it is possible that you have an allergic contact dermatitis or irritant contact dermatitis. Sometimes, even though the use of the product has been stopped, the body's immune cells continue to produce histamine. Histamine is what causes prolonged allergic reactions. Consult this problem with a dermatologist. Doctors need to assess immediately, whether these symptoms are true allergic and irritant dermatitis, or are there other causes (for example psoriasis, or possibly fungal infections). The doctor may need to do a blood sample examination and examination of skin scrapings (depending on the doctor's suspicion).
Try to apply a moisturizing lip free moisturizer. Avoid peeling dry lip skin. Thus my explanation, hopefully can help you. Regards.
