Does anyone know what the hell is going on with my chin/lips?

Had a couple of chin spots that seem to have escalated and is now very sore/peeling. Some spots have now popped up on my lips and I have a massive blister on the inside of my lip?!

No different products used, nothing has changed etc.

Is it an infection?

I think maybe impetigo too. If it is, it’s catching so careful not to share towels etc but will respond well to antibiotics. You need to pop along to the doctor.

Does look like impetigo to me too.
Can feel burny on your skin, itchy and you might have a slightly raised temperature or just feel under the weather!

It's also very contagious so good luck, get some cream (think it's fucidin that gets prescribed!) and hopefully it doesn't spread any further

Currently have some sudocrem slathered on it! Bit my lip yesterday and it completely swelled up on one side and this morning it is blistered on the inside so must of been how I caught it!

You don't catch impetigo by biting your lip. You need antibiotics since you shouldn't be in contact with other people at the moment.
