I have extreme blisters on my lips
Aug 18, 2005

I have these extreme blisters that pop up all over my lips every other week or so , they pop up , dry up and peel before they go away.My lips are very sensitive now.What is it?

Response from Dr. Henry

To best try and answer your question some details regarding your HIV status and which HIV medications you are on are important. If sun exposure seems to trigger the blisters as well as any history of herpes simplex (or cold sores)is also useful information. A culture of the blisters as well as an examination by your HIV specialist or primary care doctor would also be helfful. KH
