When they begin, I feel a tingling, usually on
the right edge of my lower lip and within a few hours, several bumps
will develop and progress to pustular bumps, they drain and ooze, get crusty and eventually go away. Periodically, I also get what is best described as chapped skin following the lip line of demarcation - the outer edges of your lips. Very painful. At that time, I was a chronic lip balm user.
