Title: Cheilitis Glandularis
Post by: Wynter on April 09, 2009, 08:21:37 AM
Has anyone ever heard of this? It occurs in the labial saliva glands around the lips and can be inflammatory.

Hi Wynter  :)

It's not something I'd heard of before so I went a googling, as I assume you have done. If anyone else doesn't know what it is here's a link.

It doesn't seem to be SjS related but does sound nasty.

Take care - Scottie  :)

Thanks, I was wondering if it was.
