I've had PA for a billion years or so. Mostly tolerable, (but getting to be no so lately!). About 2 months ago, I had 2 small spots appear on my upper lip exactly where a drinking glass would touch. Well after about a week it started spreading to the border that defines my lips from my face and my lips have become swollen. Not stupid swollen, but annoyingly swollen. Also they have become very sensitive to touch.
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this?
I saw my Rheumy and he referred me to a derm. Saw the drm and was given 2 shots of kenalog and betamethasone. But I think maybe I was underdosed. Had no change in my lips, but I also had no change in my other plaque type P on my legs, etc. The pain in my ankles eased up for about 2 days, about 3 days after the shot, but that was it. I expected more from the steroid shots. I have to go in for a lip biopsy this week...
Anyone ever try glycerine on their lips before?
I'm on Enbrel, BTW.
