Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

How long did this episode of kissing last? Was there any trauma associated with kissing? What is your worry regarding this?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
There was no trauma associated with kissing and the kissing lasted for about 5 minutes I’m not exactly sure. My worry is I’m concerned and have anxiety.

Just worried that’s all
Doctor: Dr. Ravoof, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

A long kiss will cause inflammation and swelling. So, your lip swelling is related to the kissing. Due to the swelling, the lip skin can be stretched and then start peeling. Therefore all your symptoms are normal and as a result of the kissing. They do not indicate an underlying disease. Also, these symptoms are transient and will resolve in a few days without causing any complications or permanent effects. So, you can relax and I see no reason why you should be worried.

Take care.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Please rate the answer with 5 stars.

Thank you!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
