Sore in the middle of my bottom lip that will not go away

Customer Question

Sore in the middle of my bot***** *****p that will not go away after almost 3 months now. I have tried ointments and it seems like it's going to go away but just ends up scabbing again and then cracking because it's right on the crack...and then it all just repeats. It all started after snorkeling and getting sunburnt. I tried abreva for a few days but no help. Used a couple of different kinds of blistex.

Can you upload a picture that has the lesion in clear focus?

Does it bleed at all?

Is there any pain?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

Yes, after the scab cracks after it gets dry. One time it bled pretty well. Other times would just bleed like as I blotted it with a kleenex.
Not really, but very slightly if I touch it or around it. And hurts like heck when I go to eat something and it cracks open.
