Annoying red mark above lip.
Hi,

Since like, November last year I have had this really annoying embarrassing red like rash above my top lip. It kinda looks like I have smudged my lipstick or something.

When I eat anything hot, it goes BRIGHT RED. Its so embarrassing, I think it is chapped lips due to the cold weather but it just wont go away. I have had it before and I just used blisterex and that sorted it out. But now it is still here.

Its not too bad at the moment, you cant really notice it anymore, but it just keeps coming back.

Anyone got any tips on how to get rid of the dam thing or what it might be.

My mum say it might be because when my lips get dry I tend to like lick them, or put my bottom lip on my top lip, if you understand me, and that I may have made it sore. Could this be it?

Oh, thank god, I am not alone. Lol!

Mine wont seem to go. It went once, but now it just wont. I think it may be due to the cold weather I dont know.

I will try vaseline thanks!

Elizabeth Arden's 8 hour creme is a miracle worker for many of these types of things..so if you have that you might give that a try

Kim, I think what you, along with the others are suffering from is a coldsore. they are very basic, easy to take care of, and if you go to any drugstore, they have products designed specifically for this - helps to get rid of the current case, and prevent in the future, as well. this stuff is in the same aisle as the kanker sore medication would be, as well as anbesol or oragel. good luck, I hear they can get painfull if left unattended.

My brother has the same problem because he sucks his lip, if you use vasaline like Laura says it should work. Just pile it on repeatedly!!

doesn't sound like a cold sore but if there's any possibility it is, be really careful where you put your mouth (cold sores are caused by the same virus that causes herpes).

Regardless of what it actually is, put Scar-Proof Polysporin on it. It will moisturize just like Vaseline or whatever, but it will also kill whatever bacteria might be involved in the redness. If it is heat sensitive, that means its either infected or the skin is irritated due to licking your lips or something along those lines.
