So frustrating because no amount or type of lip balm seemed to help (vaseline lip
therapy, body shop lip
salve, etc etc). Additionally, the skin
above my upper lip
became dry, red and irritated. About 2-3 weeks after that, I started experiencing swollen eyelids as well as dry, wrinkled, red, itchy patches above and below my eyes. I could not apply the most mild lotion to those areas because it would burn, but it was so dry I wanted to do something.
