Avatar n tn I also have slight eczema on my face that i treat using a sulphur soap suggested by my dermotalogist to reduce inflammation. Could i have eczema on my lip that may cause this irritation?
Avatar n tn the masseuse was fully dressed but she kissed me thrice (which I didn't expect btw) and it did involve exchange of saliva but they were brief ~5 second kisses. it is important to note that I had lip crack which was just fresh. I asked the community of the possibility of contracting STDs, specifically HIV and more specifically gonorrhea.
Avatar n tn My bottom lip has gone discolored it is a bit black and blue much like a bruise would be, only it's not a bruise it does not hurt, it is not tender, and there was no blunt trauma (to my concious knowledge) to the lip.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be a part of Cheilitis, which is a medical condition involving inflammation of the lip. 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.
Avatar f tn I went to a GP and she gave me Elidel cream and Vaseline petroleum jelly - she said that it was an inflammation. Now, in terms of dryness, they're not so dry anymore but I still need to apply lip balm otherwise they will feel so dry (but not chapped). My lips don't feel itchy anymore but now the skin under my lips area feel a bit itchy sometimes. However, there is still discolouration on my lips.
Avatar m tn on my top lip almost daily. Not the border but the actual lip part. They look like tiny white-head zits that barely raise the skin when they are at their worst. They do not come out of the skin like a blister. They stay under the skin but cause it to rise as they get bigger. There are about seven locations where they occur, and they only occur in these exact locations. All locations are spread across my top lip, and not in the corners.
Avatar n tn Hello, I’m looking for some help with a problem I have been dealing with for over 5 years now. I have had numerous tests and they all come back negative with the exception of inflammation. It is possible that my doctor maybe testing me for the wrong thing and I’m hoping you may suggest another test or tests that may be able to diagnose my problem.
Avatar n tn Should go away in a couple of days--no treatment needed. Cheilitis can cause pigmentation from inflammation. It lasts a bit longer, say a month or two. The less you do for it, the faster it goes away. The same is true for your pigmentation around the eyes--people call it "scarring," but it isn't permanent. Try a little 1% hydrocortisone once or twice a day for a day or two. Take care. Dr.
Avatar f tn In the past few weeks I have had 2-3 cases of an outbreak rash-like irritation that surfaces on my lips, I'm scarred it might be an STD but i haven't been intimate with anyone (including kissing) for almost one year. I have however pierced my lip, i personally made sure all the equipment was sterilized but still fear contraction is possible. My lip was pierced about 2-3 months ago and there were no complications at all in that time period.
Avatar m tn I HAD A ZIT ON MY CHIN CLOSE TO MY LIP.I IRRITATED IT A LITTLE BIT NOW MY BOTTOM RIGHT LIP SAME SIDE AS MY ZIT IS SWOLLEN AND ALSO HURTS WHEN I SMOKE.I DOT WHETER TO APPLY A COLD PACK OR HEAT AND ALSO HOW LONG SHOULD I EXPECT THE SWOLLEN TO BE?
Avatar f tn It got rid of it, but I would use the ointment every day because it would be a tiny bit irritated pink. Now, it has come back ( winter) and I think it changes based on weather ( I live in MidWest) and hydrocortisone isn't working. Help! P. s. it started two summers ago. It was really humid and above my lip was sort of itchy so I rubbed really hard and it turned red. Then it never went away. One time when it go really bad, it broke open and started bleeding a little but scabbed over.

Avatar f tn I had a lip biopsy done on 18 days ago in order to help diagnosis for Sjogrens. My lip is even more swollen than before and the so called disolving stitiches didnt disolve so I had this out last night. The pain is still there and there is a raised area about half an inch in diameter that is white with redness and bruising that covers a further area of around an inch or so.

Avatar m tn I may have ruled this out, but I would appreciate a professional opinion. Just above my lip is a small red area, a little bit rough but the texture really is no different from the rest of my facial skin. I thought it might be shaving irritation, but the blade does not hit that area when shaving. There is small amount of redness, and maybe one or two tiny tiny red spots, but I would not say they are bumps or blisters.
11105290 tn?1437846133 There is actually another vet there who does acupuncture, and while I tend to go the western medicine route for serious issues, the vet suggested it may be a way to get Sami off the predisone or on reduced prednisone if the accupunture helps reduce inflammation. We'll see if she'll tolerate such a thing. The skin issue isn't going away and I am still worried. I emailed the vet a picture and asked if he had further advice. I looked up Dermatosis and it sounds like a possibility.
Avatar m tn question: when one has a CSF inflammation such as o-bands, lets say for the sake of this question, o-bands greater than 5. (this gets us past the oh, everyone has them statemetns by DUMB neuros). and the person in question has neuro symptoms. what kind of symptoms could a person have with a CSF inflammtaion regarding o-bands? as Quix mentioned, this is brain chemistry.
Avatar n tn I've been using it for a year and my skin has never looked better. It occurred to me the other day to try a little bit on the dry patch on my lip twice a day. In just a few days, there has been a HUGE improvement. The dry patch is almost gone! Dermal-K is kinda pricey (about $40 for a 4oz jar) so I'm not sure it makes sense to get it just for the occasional dry patch, but I told you I would come back and let you know if I found something that works.

Avatar n tn At the time, I had been using just plain Burt's Bees Lip Balm for many weeks. When I got the symptoms, I used a bit more of the balm than I usually did, thinking it would help the dryness. When nothing seemed to be working, I stopped using it altogether. In time, my lips healed, and I switched to Softlips lipbalm in both vanilla and peppermint flavors. I showed no reaction from their usage for about a month. Then, I started getting the same reaction that I got from the Burt's Bees Lip Balm.
Avatar n tn Phenytoin is also known to cause some skin related side effects. Some other causes could be lip biting, lip licking, Vit.B deficiency, smoking, overexposure to sun and ill fitting dentures. In extreme cases, this could be due to bacterial or fungal skin infection. You need to drink plenty of water daily – around 1.5 – 3 litres per day. Do not keep your lips dry; apply lip balm which contains sunscreen – preferably a medicated one.
Avatar n tn I have a red rash-looking thing on my upper lip. It covers my entire upper lip and looks almost like a red mustache. It doesn't hurt or itch or anything and is not warm to the touch. It has been there for a couple of months. I have tried Hydrocortisone cream 1% and 2%, but that has done nothing. I have noticed it getting a little bit darker. I am female and so I am quite embarrassed by it. My makeup does not cover it up that well.
Avatar f tn Two weeks ago, things got a bit worse when I noticed painful tenderness in corners of the upper lip. I had one doctor tell me I could have cheilitis, but the mild steroid that was prescribed did nothing. I tried the at-home cure, washing the lips with antibacterial soap and the slathering vaseline, but it just seems to make it dry without healing. I take tons of vitamins— iron, b complex, extra b12, lysine, A, D, E, flaxseed oil...but nothing has seemed to make a difference.

Avatar m tn I read a ton of blogs - the tea tree oil helped a bit as did eucerin lip chap. But what SOLVED it for me was a lip chap I found at my bookstore. It’s a Canadian made lip chap called Epic Blend - Vegan Pineapple Mint. It was approx. 2.50 CAD. I’d had the dry patch on my lip for 3 months and after using this epic blend it was gone in under a week. I wanted to share because I know how frustrating it was for me.
Avatar f tn The numbness is going away considerably except for the slight tingle feeling when I put my finger to my lower lip. The two teeth feel a bit strange but I do notice improvement. It was very difficult to talk and eat but I got used to it because that's all we can do right? I would again just encourage everyone to keep a positive outlook!
Avatar m tn Actually my lips were extremely dry and while laughing my lip got a cut due to dryness and then i used to lick them.the next morning i got a bit of a black mark on my upper lip and then lower lip was still dry and then due of the cut on lower lip while laughing the dryness exceeds and increased 4 mm below my lower lip and then in 2 3 days it turned into a black mark. i consulted dermatologist but he prescribed me "elocon". its been 3 months but nothing happening... please help me....
Avatar n tn when i came back (as mentioned earlier on the previous threads) my vagina started to itch and the doc said i had a yeast infection. well, my lip started to itch too. my upper lip started to itch a week or so after this sexual encounter. it itched for a few minutes and then it went away. it came back again 5 -7 days later - it left then it came back again. i have this feeling that maybe its hsv2 but then... there are no lesions or blisters or inflammation.
