Clove oil burns on mouth
I am using clove oil on gums, since 2-3 days ,as they seem to be receding. I am noticing my lips have become dark and the end of mouth on both sides,it seems to be more darker. I tried to rub the skin and the skin came off. It is similar to burn. Please suggest some immediate remedies. I have applied curd for cooling effect though .

This is limited details and more precise information is needed about your skin condition which can help in planning a treatment. A thorough history, clinical examination and appropriate laboratory tests will be needed to solve the mystery. A photograph would have been helpful. Consider seeing a Dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
Next Steps
Discontinue Clove oil , it is an irritant.

There isn't sufficient information to reach a specific diagnosis. I would advise you to visit a dentist so that you can be examined and undergo the necessary investigations to find the underlying cause of the problem and have it treated accordingly. You can apply ice indirectly to reduce the swelling and to reduce the pain for 10-15 mins 3-4 times a day. If the problem persists or worsens visit the ER at the earliest.
