It isn’t unusual for the bottom lip to shed skin or peel as though it’s chapped during a Candida infestation. There’s actually a name for this as it’s one of the many ways that the Candida makes itself apparent. It’s called Candida chelitis and always affects the lower lip, and believe it or not, sometimes this is the only symptom someone will experience. According to the reports, the lip can become terribly sore, red, and raw, with pain such as stinging or burning sensations, and even swollen at times when this is the course the Candida albicans take.
Since it’s really just another form of a Candida infestation, the only cure is the Candida treatment including the diet; of course, lip balms can bring temporary relief. If you recall some of our various posts, we’ve talked about how, during the treatment, Candida can present itself in various ways, and unfortunately this is just another one of those ways.
