rash/sores on and around lips

Posted in the Dermatology Forum

Hello, I was wondering if anyone might have some ideas about these symptoms:
-Open sores on the corner of lips. Not fluid filled blisters, more like circular cuts.
-Very dry patches on lips
-Red circular bumps all around the lips, down to chin...not painful at all, just bumps
-Some crusting of sores and bumps

The bumps are spreading so I'm going to the doctor on Monday, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas in the meantime. I've been slathering on Anbesol because it numbs the pain of the open sores, but I'm wondering if that might be making the bumps worse.

Thanks in advance.
