Hi, It could be just chronic dry skin present around your mouth, some people are pre-disposed genetically to have dry areas on the face. It could also be allergies to cosmetics you use, in this case specifically lipsticks.Or it could also be due to deficiency of vitamins in your diet. Apply calamine lotion when it itches and always moisturize yous skin well especially around the mouth. If itching is severe you could take an anti-histamine for about a week.
There is some dry cracked skin all around the "lips" of my vagina and its super dry and cracked to the point of bleeding around my clitoris. I haven't had sex in about 5 days and I have had dry skin before but after I showered it was usually fine. I don't know if it's from working out more and it has something to do with sweating or if there are other reasons. I do use lotion so I'm confused as to why this is happening.
anyway theres usually dead white or sometimes yellow-ish skin around it so i decide to rub it off and my skin becomes really red.after i rubbed it off i put on some neosporin,few of the redness went away but next day i realized my skin began to break and dry again a bit in the same place so i decide to do the same with the neosporin. 2 days later no progression of getting rid of it so today i tried some mosturiezer so far the results are the same.My question is how do i get rid of this?

Dear doctor, i was having dry and chapped lips for the past 1 year, it is getting worse after i use vaseline. now the skin around the lips become dry, red and tense. is there any way to improve? thanks.
The skin on my lips doesn't seem to be growing properly and every couple of days my lips get mushy and the skin peels of in sections. The result is that my lips look very stripey with patches of dry skin and yellowed, decaying sections that are impossible to clear up. Eventually most of the skin will peel off and the cycle repeats itself again as early as the next day. Normal creams and vaseline etc does nothing for this and the problem seems to lie much deeper. Any ideas?
It started in the early morning of a cold day two years ago. I saw my lips were dry and I rubbed until the dry skin come off. After 30 minutes I felt like my lower lip pop out since then I have this swollen and irregular lips. because of this I can't talk properly. I tried all the chap sticks and lip balms but nothing helped. I also tried topical steroids(Elidel, Desonide, etc.) but no improvement. I saw many doctors: dermatologists and a oral specialist.

Or a bad case of Chapped lips , a condition whereby the lips become dry and possibly cracked. It may be caused by the evaporation of moisture. Lip balm can often provide temporary relief, though it should not be used extensively. One should avoid licking their lips as saliva contains the enzyme amylase, which can damage the already compromised lip tissue. Honey can be used on the lips as a natural remedy.
i live in the caribbean, and i have dark lips, the ring around my lips are even darker, can anyone tell me how to get rid of it....
For about 3 months my lips have been flakey around the outer edges into the corners. It's only my upper lip that seems to have the problem. It is sometimes numb, especially in the mornings. It is very dry, like no moisture is getting to it. I keep it caked with moisturizer, like carmex, but it only helps temporarily. The upper lip is also swollen at times. My husband can see that there's a problem, but only when I get right in his face. HELP!!
Dip a black tea bag in warm water and press it on lips for three to four minutes. This increases moisture level on skin of lips. Remove your lipstick before going to bed using a herbal cleanser and apply a thin layer of ghee on and do not lick lips repeatedly. Collagen is a protein that prevents wrinkle development around the lips. Apply lip balm or lip moisturizer before you go to bed as well as during the day - having the central heating on while you sleep can really dry your lips out.
So I've been having this problem for quite some time and every time it's something different that I think it is. Around my bikini line I have extremely itchy, dry, and irritated skin. Sometimes it becomes unbearable. Then some days it'll itch on the lips. I've had this problem for actually a few years, but it seems to go away just before I'm about to talk to my mom about it. Then shortly after it'll come back. Some days there's also a white discharge, but not all the time.
When I get out of the shower, my skin on my face and around my lips feels very tight and dry, especially if I don not moisturize. The thing that really bothers me is that every time after I eat a meal the inflamed border of my lips gets much redder and much more inflamed. This has happened for about 7-8 years now. I have gone to several dermatologists and have been diagnosed with eczema by some and given elidel and protopic, which did not work to improve the symptoms around my mouth.
i also have been checking my lips everyday to make sure no lesions have begun to appear but the skin around my lips and even part of my lips have been dry lately more specifically on the corners of my mouth. i dont know if im freaking myself out or what but ever since i have begun to worry about this i have noticed some signs that i might have contracted herpes. i had a tiny pimple it looks like but i popped it which was below my mouth slightly. when should i get a blood test for herpes?
its rough and dry and it chafes and peels but it kind of pusses like a dry sticky liquid with an unpleasant smell its like a ring around my lips and sometimes bleeds i have been using Vaseline,neosporin,cortisone,and multiple different types of chap-sticks its very painful and I just want it to go away so if theres anything you ca do to help me i would really appreciate it -thanks,amanda
Hi my ten year old son has a very dry looking rash around his mouth. I think its because its cold but have caught hime constantly licking the area as well. I've put pawpaw ointment on it to help with the moisture is this the best thing to use?
That might've been it, I've applied hydrocortisone cream which I had for my eczema to my lips. My lips were just dry but after applying every hour it's done wonders. I think it's the cure for dry lips. Hopefully it lasts till the morning.
i have had dry, red skin above and below my lips for around 10 years now. i have been to the doctors around 6 times and everytime they prescribe me with cream, it works for around a week and then doesnt anymore. my parents now refuse to take me to any more doctors or to pay to see a dermatologist because they think there is nothing that they can do to help. The skin in often flaky and dry, but sometimes is red and itchy.
It kind looks like I have dry skin around that area. I used to use neutrogena acne soap excessively all over my face which i think is the reason why that part of my skin is kinda burned. is there any kind of cream i can use so that my skin can go back to normal; to the normal skin color that the rest of my face has. all your advice is very much appreciated.

For couple of days it started hurting and like i felt a cut there when i stretched my lips it would hurt, the pain went after daays but left dry skin there that would peel and turn white at times. and yesterday i went to see him again and i had oral sex and i went to see my friend she told me i got genital herpes.

You need to drink plenty of water daily – around 1.5 – 3 litres per day and eat a balanced diet. Do not keep your lips dry; apply lip balm which contains sunscreen – preferably a medicated one. If you have cracks at the corner of your mouth it indicates B2 deficiency in this case you need to take B2 supplements. If the symptoms still persist, consult your skin specialist or dermatologist. Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Regards.
Hello, In chronic dry lips, it can be due to atopic dermatitis or eczema("Atopic" refers to a group of diseases where there is often an inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever). Cheilitis(Inflammation of the skin on and around the lips)is often seen in atopic dermatitis. Diagnosed by blood test like RAST. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Hi For around the past year i have had very VERY dry lips. I have tried every lipsalve carmex vaseline ect on the market and nothing helps. In addition on the bottom right hand corner it is very red around the corner of the lip and looks like my lip is extended in a weird shape. I went to the doctors and he prescribed daktacort which worked for a while but then around a week later it became more red and sore.
