Hey this is my first post here. I just turned 22 last month, I came across this site back in March or so, about two month after my breakouts first occurred which was in early January. They happened about a week or so before I got my wisdom teeth out and so I figured it had something to do with stress, but they stayed for months. I searched all over the internet for cures and finally came across the home remedy cure. I was thrilled because the water and vaseline worked for a month or so i would say. But then i got more breakouts and I did the water and vaseline again and they went away. When they came back I finally went to the doctor and of course he prescribed hydrocortisone cream like everyone else has said. I used that at night before i went to bed and I guess it did get rid of some of the redness but my lips would still ooze in the morning (which is the worst feeling ever, im sure most of you will agree) I have been using vaseline as a lip balm for months now. Within the last few weeks I have gotten more breakouts so I came back to this forum in hopes there would be new information. I am going to buy some b12 vitamins and also a flavorless toothpaste and hope that works. Right not my lips are red all around and am embarrassed to even go in public, I try not eat much because eating irritates the lips and makes the even more red. I'll post again shortly, I hope others keep posting as well.
