Can anyone help me? For the past 4 months I have been suffering from swollen, burning and itching lips, the skin around them is also red and sore and both corners of my mouth are split . I have been back and forth to my GP and have been prescribed a course of antibiotics and numerous creams and ointments but nothing works .Have had blood tests but zinc levels ok, iron levels low, now taking iron tablets..I have changed my toothpaste, stopped wearing makeup and am using Aveeno bath oil and cream.I have an appointment for a patch test but this is not until the end of June and feel that this will not come up with a definite cause anyway. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice, this is really getting me down now. Thanks.

Could be a Vit B2 (riboflavin) deficiency. Some people have perhaps a slightly higher requirement than others.
Rich sources in food :- liver, yeast, cheese, oily fish, eggs, dark green vegetables. Perhaps B complex vitamin tablets.
Just a suggestion as you've had other things checked.
Sounds unpleasant.
