not burning but at times very painful like a constant toothache and they never swell
this soreness of the lips is a type of burning mouth syndrome
burning mouth syndrome is when a person has a burning sensation in the mouth without any visible effects in the mouth itself
sometimes a variant can cause this soreness of the lips only without any symptoms in the mouth
exact cause is not known
however this can be treated
the treatment is
tricyclic antidepressants like amytriptilline
nerve drugs like gabapentin
Capsicain mouth wash: Take hot pepper and mix it in water to the extent that you can tolerate it. Rinse your lips with this two or three times a day. This will desensitize the burning sensation.
you now need to see your doctor for this
discuss with him about burning mouth syndrome and whether this is a variation of this syndrome
also discuss about using amytriptilline and gabapentin
continue the capsicain mouth wash
you can also take vitamin B multivitamins
