Lips Scaly And Thickened.?
Hello,. The skin on my left upper lip felt dry, scaly, if I noticed a slight discoloration (whiter zone), and I felt a thickening of the skin in that area. I personally suspect that there is a fungal infection, because it has been some time this I have often been in contact with fungal cultures. I have come to the nearest clinic and the doctor there suspects I have Herpes Labialis. Since one of my family is in the process of healing after Herpes Zoster and I personally do not understand the disease, I now receive 400 mg Acyclovir (ointment) and 5% Acyclovir (topical) treatment.
