one on 7/18/13 found it on line, no blisters just itching and burning stops for a while after applying calming cream

Thank you for the information,
The itching & burning can be due to an allergy.
The cause of allergy is often not apparent.
Food, drug are often factors
But it can occur from environmental allergens too.
Sometimes, infection, neuropathy, deficiency state, dermatitis etc can cause it.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor when the symptoms are continuing for 2 weeks.
You can apply moisturizer on the lips.
Zyrtec will be helpful for allergy.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
Please feel free for any follow up query.
Best wishes.
