Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips on side of mouth

lip

have severe cracking at the side of my lips - in fact I woke up this morning with dried blood all over the side of my mouth. I was at a bar earlier ordering a drink and felt something wet hit the side of my mouth from the bar man's hand as he handed back my change. It made contact with exactly where all the dried blood was this morning. The bar was in a pretty rough part of town and the bar man looked pretty rough.
Stomatitis is an inflammation of the mucous lining of any of the structures in the mouth and Irritation and fissuring in the corners of the lips is termed angular stomatitis. Most common causes are iron deficiency anemia, or vitamin B deficiencies.They can also be caused by allergies and infections.Try taking some iron supplements and multivitamins for some days and see if the sumptoms persist.If they persist,then celiac disease or other causes of malnutrition have to be ruled out.
A few weeks ago i had quite badly cracked lips on one side of my mouth. I figured it was due to the cold weather as i had the same problem last year in the same place but never elsewhere on my lips. I have been applying Cymex to the area for about three weeks now but the area is still very dry and sore when i wake up. I feel like i have to pick at it when i wake up because its quite painful when i try to open my mouth.
I've been on TX for 34 weeks and one of the most irritating of the many SX are the cracked corners of the lips. Sometimes it's painful and even brushing my teeth makes it flare up. it hurts when i smile, when i talk, when i eat . . . I use chapstick several times an hour and drink as much water as i can but I still have the same problem. A lot of people seem to have the same thing but most say it goes away after TX.
Im on treatment for hep c and have had a lot of side effects come and go, lately Ive been experiencing cracked corners of my mouth and its very painful not to mention embarassing and ugly, did anyone else experience this while on treatment and if so what can I do to make it go away or somewhat better?
The corners of my mouth just suddenly began to crack open and are very painful. They are form flaky scabs over night but when I open my mouth in the morning, they break open again. Does anyone know what might cause this or what I can do to treat it?
I had/have what feels like really chapped lips but just in the corners. My mouth droops (like a frown) now, with the side effects of the meds, and I catch myself every now and then almost drooling from the corners. That's probably where my chapness comes from. I just carry around lip balm all the time now.
I've had these little white bumps under my tongue, on the roof of my mouth towards the back and on the inside of my lower lip for about a year and a half. They do not hurt. They are uncomfortable as my mouth feels rough using my tongue. They just appeared one day. I have been going to many specialist in Vancouver over the past year and a half and have stumped them all so far.
I recently have experienced the same symptoms of the weeping, yellow crust on lips. It started with cracked, chapped lips, and applied Blistex to help heal my lips. Only my lips did not heal. They started appearing swollen, with reddness on inner lips, yellow crust on tops of lips, no pain but about as uncomfortable as a badly chapped lip. On the 4th day I went to go see a doctor; he diagnosed me with a condtion called Impetigo which is a bacterial infection that is very contagious.
I have the same symptoms, it started on one side of the inside of my lip and now I have it on both sides, a small patch, but my mouth is very dry. I will throw away all of my chap sticks, but it’s getting cold in NY. Wouldn't antibiotic cream work faster? Thanks again!
Currently, I have one pimple-like bump on one side of my lip (as seen on the left side of picture), and on the other side are small dry spots on my lip. I cannot tell WHAT in the world they are because they are rather small and not very noticeable. I have to look especially close to be able to see these dry spots on the left of my upper lip. Now I'm kind of a hypochondriac. Once I started researching all of this information on Herpes, I started flipping out, thinking that I have HSV 1.
Sonya, I had serious cracking at the corner of lips when I did round 1 of treatment. I'm getting ready to start round 2 on Sunday and dread getting those cracks back. A fella on another board recommended Biotene Oral Balance Dry Mouth Moisturizing Gel. He said it runs about $8.00 a tube and that the packaging specifically says that it's good for people on chemo and radiation. Heck, I'm gonna give it shot, during round 2.
He told me that it was Angular Stomatitus and that I should always keep something on my lips and the corner’s of my mouth. He also told me that there was yeast in my mouth and he gave me a prescription for some kind of yeast infection medicine. I went and got my prescription and they told me to just get the real yeast infection medicine… well I felt kind of strange putting it on my lips but I did. So the next day, I woke up and saw that my lips had broken out into a kind of red rash.
on my vaginal more on the pubic hair i dont wear panties that often but now i see them simular symtoms on other parts of my body-------1 on my upper thigh like a boil, another was in the middle of my back and upper arm i even notice i had one come 1time on the side of my face, eyebrow and now i have a sore in the inside of ear like a blackhead/scab.
The only side effect that was a problem was the constant dry lips , as I remember. The effect on my skin was unbeliveable!!! And it has remained perfect until 2 years ago, when I began to break out in tiny little bumps on my forehead and around my mouth.( mind you I am now 45,too old for this!!!) Back I went to Dr.6, and he put me on tetracycline for months, which kept it at bay, but not gone.
One night I bit into a piece of an apple right on the side of my bad tooth, and somthing didnt feel right. My whole lower jaw swelled and my mouth was in so much pain. Needless to say I noticed my lower left side of my lip and jaw/cheek became numb, and has been numb since. The swelling finally went down, but I can still feel like a hard bump in my lower jaw bone. I am starting to get worried, that my lip and cheek is still numb...Is this normal?? Will the feeling ever come back?
I have suffered from mouth ulcers on occasion ever since I was little. Although i would usually only get an outbreak of them a couple of times a year, they have gotten significantly worse over the past year. I am now going on 4 1/2 months straight of nonstop mouth ulcers...sometimes 10-12 at a time and are extremely painful. I have been tested for celiac disease (which was negative) as well as herpes (also negative).
I have it on one side of my mouth.
you can still see the scared area on either side of my mouth...but its kind of not very noticeable ...thats the only place on my face that sh** happened..also inside my mouth was really sore...good luck..
I play an instrument and sometimes the corner of my mouth gets kind of cracked and irritated because of the moisture. I obsessively put on chapstick to keep my lips moisturized. This little crack or whatever in the corner of my lips remained for three days, only slightly stinging when I opened my mouth too wide, but seemed a tad tingly....but I have a phobia of cold sores since I have somehow managed to escape getting them from my mum all these years.
The problem is that I have cramps in the stomach and my mouth is dry. and My lips are dry and looks cracked. I told you about the white lines inside of the cheek gums. It's now faded away but I see the impressions (it isn't white but regular color like my gums). I also feel a little dazed from time to time for a short time. What can I take over the counter to relieve some of these symptoms from Walgreen or CVS?
and while his sore was active we went swwimming at a lake with family and about 2 days later i now have a sore on the corner of my mouth aswell as a couple small bumps on the tip and side of mt tongue at first i had one on the side of my tongue then the corner of my mouth and the the tip of my tongue. the sore on the side on my tongue feel is is insignificant due to the fact it may have just bee a swollen taste bud it was small clear and stuck out about a half millimeter.
It is usually inside the lower lip, under the tongue or the inside of mouth and caused mainly by biting the lips or trauma during eating of food. Usually it goes away on its own. But if it does not, then corticosteroid injections and surgical removal by scalpel or laser are done by a dermatologist. It then has to be differentiated from other mucocutaneous lesions also. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Dry and cracked lips is a symptom of a vitamin B deficiency. I had a severe B12 deficiency and had cracks on either side of my mouth. I believe this may have been be due to riboflavin (vitamin B2) deficiency however. All the B vitamins work together so if one B vitamin is deficient, other B vitamins will follow.
but what about dry red eyes and crusty sometimes. for 2--does anybody have gotten cracks on side of mouth from the tx? and what was good for that?
I usually get these weird dings in my lips but thats because my lips would rest on my braces. I also get small pimples on the side of my mouth, but they are usually caused my toothpaste. I want to know what is wrong with my lip as its driving me nuts.
Hello, From the symptoms, it can be due to side effect of the drug or due to angular cheilitis of the lips. It is an inflammatory lesion at the corner of the mouth and manifests as deep cracks or splits. More commonly it is caused by a fungal infection. Dry out the lesions completely by patting and air drying after washing with a mild soap and use petroleum jelly to lock out moisture. It is vital that the affected areas be clean and completely dry before application of the jelly.
Indeed, instead of 5 days, I have only 2 days of headache now, which has been a plus. On the other hand, there are a couple of things bothering me... I've always had problems with weight and I gain weight very easily. However, in the past few months, my eating habits are much healthier and I feel as if I'm eating less. Even so, I gained about 8 pounds in 3 months (since I started taking it). So I was wondering if it could be it?
They are usually close to joints, this one right now right behind the second joint of my index on the side towards my thumb. It only hurts when there's pressure on it and it never itches, and never comes in groups, just one at a time. I've had this one for about two weeks so far, but don't want to pay to go see a dermatologyst. If it helps, It's cold and dry weather right now. I shower daily. No tree oils or anything weird like that.
not only that but i developed cracked corners around my lips about a month ago (long gone now) and they were chapped. i also started having bumps around my pubic area that formed to scabs. on a side note my skin is really really itchy and my dermatologist saw nothing wrong (although i feel like he did just a quick look see). i also developed a blister in the pubic area as well as anal area a while back.
