They don't bleed, and they are really chapped. They don't flake up alot just like very tiny flakes, extremely dry, almost like tight plastic. They are inflamed though, real red-ish looking and yeah they go white when water gets on them and small pieces of skin can be wiped off. After a shower they look normal for about an hour then immediately dry and get hard again. And they burn around the outsides and now on the bottom lip burns too, almost always. It feels like if I ate some hotwings. The top lip looks worse because it's color is getting dark somehow and is causing a lot of little fordyce spots to appear.
