Lips Are Black And Peeling After Being Exposed To Mango Sap?
in the afternoon, I want to ask.. why is it.. my lower lip looks like it’s got sap, the characteristics are black, sore, peeling, it hasn’t been gone for a month, I just apply Vaseline moisturizer.. so it doesn’t come out when it’s out of the house.. please give a solution ..thanks before.
Hello Gusti, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
It needs to be clarified, have you previously been exposed to sap? Or are you the one who concludes that your current lip condition looks like it's been exposed to sap with the characteristics you mentioned above?
Generally, the sap in the fruit can cause stickiness, mild irritation to symptoms of contact dermatitis (allergic reaction). With the complaints you feel at this time, try to apply baby oil or olive oil on your lip area and let it sit for about 1 minute then rinse with warm water. Avoid rubbing your lips too hard because it can trigger irritation.
If within a week there has been no change or the complaints are increasing, you should see a doctor for an immediate examination so that you get the appropriate therapy.
That's my explanation, I hope it's useful.
