DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS IS... HELP PLEASE!!

We have a 8 mo. kitten, and he's been having mouth issues. His lips have been swollen and red, and now his lower lip has something that resembles almost like a piece of cornflake stuck to his lip. Its flaky, and almost like a flap of skin.. it moved from one side to the other... he had a mouth infection in the inside and was on medicine.. and now they put him on a different type of medicine, but the flaky flap is still there and its not going away. It originally started out almost like a pimple and then turned into this... i have pictures if this helps.. any ideas, please help!!! thank you!

That looks very odd, certainly not normal. I think I'd have to ask my vet, because I've never seen anything like that. Hopefully someone here will have seen this or heard of it and be able to advise you, though I do think this is an issue for a vet to resolve.

Wow that is unique. Is that growing out of the lip, or is it on the surface of the skin? Has the vet seen this yet?

It seems to start out like a sore then turns into whats in the pic. We had brought him to the vet and at the time it wasnt inflamed like that. He told us that it could have been a small cut that got infected or possibly a reaction to metal bowls. He said that his glands were swollen at the time of the visit and put him on Cephalexin and it seems to be doing nothing. The sore actually started on the right side of the lip, went away for a few days (thats was the vet visit) and then started to show up on the left side. We have a follow up apt. this week so hopefully they will know better on what it might be. We have pics this time so we ill see! Thank you!
