By week 2, severe canker sores in mouth and upper lip blown up. Two weeks off did nothing to ease the red spot on top of my lips. Upper lip area appears to be eroding all skin layers.

This is day 13. I am using Zyclara all over my face. I look like I have been battered and burned. My mouth is completely blown up with fever blisters, and my lower jaw aches. The mouth pain is debilitating. I don't know if I can do one more day of treatment. I have used Carac in the past with good results, and no fever blisters. Zyclara is very easy to use, and it is obviously very very e ... Show Full Comment
