Customer Question

I ordered a liquid lipstick from colour pop because I wanted to try something new. But then my upper lip started to tingle but I didn't think on it much. A few days later, the side of my lip started to itch and small bumps and I started freaking out so i but peroxide over it but after to clear up a dark spot was there instead which is bothering me. And now today including the dark spot, my upper lip started tingling so i scratched it and now red bumps are on my lip and my upper lip is also swelling. I thought it was herpes but I've never had sex with anyone nor have kissed anyone im only 16 what should i do?

Thank you for your question.

You are most likely having allergic contact dermatitis from what you are describing.

You will likely require a prescription of a steroid cream to help cure this problem.

If there is a secondary bacterial infection, which is something that can happen commonly, then you will also need a topical or an oral antibiotic as well along with the topical steroid.

Let me know if you have more questions.
