I woke up one morning with swollen lips, itchy lips. I thought it was a new face cream I was trying. Now I'm quite sure it was caused by a new tortilla wrap I've been eating, Xtreme Wellness by Ole Mexican foods, the spinach and herbs flavor. It has taken a few days to figure this out but now it makes the most sense. I look like I have duck lips and they are swollen, itchy around the outer edge and they burn. I'm trying to find a natural source of relief. I often have a reaction to the stuff prescribed for relief. Anyone else who has contact dermatitis, stay away from these tortillas. They are delicious but nothing is worth what I'm going through now..
