Common Questions and Answers about Bit lip won't heal


Avatar f tn In January I had a really bad cold sore blister on my bottom lip..I accidentally bit it and it just would not heal..In early march my primary care doc sent me to a dermatologist and he did a biopsy since it just would not heal..The biopsy came back negative for cancer but was identified as lichen simplex chronicus, the doc said it should heal within a few weeks with vaseline. Well it is now May and my lip is just not right..
Avatar n tn I accidently bit my inside lower lip several weeks ago and the wound is slow to heal. The wound it self seems to have a purple and white color to it. The area around it is also swollen and I've applied ice to it but this doesn't seem to bring the swelling down. It really isn't painful but it looks like I have a huge growth on my inside lip and it looks weird. Any thoughts on how I can get rid of this.
Avatar n tn To help balance my lip paralysis in my left lower lip my PS gave me tiny bit of Btox on the right side to at least balance it till it came back. Well it came back in about 2 months but where the botox was injected still hasn't! It was a teeny tiny spot on my chin where he placed it and so now it is slightly imbalancd from the botox! Its been over a year but apparantly botox in the chin can last a long long time because the muscles there are used often.
Avatar n tn Hi can anyone help me with a problem concerning my discolored bottom lip? My lip has a light pink and dark colour, I think it might be because of pigmintation. what can I do to even out the discoloration ?
Avatar f tn Soak your nipples in warm salt water and use lanolin and breastmilk. It won't completely take the soreness out, but it will help them heal and not crack. It takes a bit for your nipples to toughen up. I agree to make sure there's enough areola in baby's mouth. My son was a preemie and he still sleeps a ton and he's two months old. And falling asleep is normal. Try not to stress and rub baby's back or shoulders while feeding to try to wake him up.
Avatar n tn When i was like, 4-5 a dog bit me on the lip and kinda ripped it a little and left a scar. It looks like a bump on my lip and then theres a little line right above my lip from it. i really want it to go away! Im 14 now and it still hasnt gone away. Everytime i meet somebody new, they ask about it and its really embarassing. PLEASEE HELP!
Avatar f tn This all started about 1.5 months ago. I noticed tiny bumps along my upper lip. It started a day or two after I kissed this one guy. I thought it was his scruffy face that caused an irritation at first. at the same time I bought a new lip balm. My lips got worse. It became very bumpy. It didn't get better until I stopped using anything on my lips but pure vitamin E. It got better and when I would try any type of lip balm, it would get worse again.
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 f tn Remember though that you've had minor surgery on a part of your body where nerves have been upset, and like every surgery, you have to let the body heal itself. All of a sudden you will wake up and realize that you have a tiny little bit more sensation than you did the day before, and then the next week it will feel like a tiny bit more has come back, and so on and so on. It takes time but the body is a very complex machine. Remember.....the itchy crawly feeling is a good sign!
243443 tn?1189759429 Hello, It has been 9 months and only recently that I realize how much time has passed, since I accidentally bit off the bumpy center part of my upper lip. All this time has passed,and in vain it has not healed itself. I saw a dermatologist,but she was more into natural remedies...She told me to get almond oil,I did,and it didn't change a thing. I was told to apply polysporin this week,it hasn't changed a thing.
Avatar n tn So frustrating because no amount or type of lip balm seemed to help (vaseline lip therapy, body shop lip salve, etc etc). Additionally, the skin above my upper lip became dry, red and irritated. About 2-3 weeks after that, I started experiencing swollen eyelids as well as dry, wrinkled, red, itchy patches above and below my eyes. I could not apply the most mild lotion to those areas because it would burn, but it was so dry I wanted to do something.
563659 tn?1310521517 Feeling a bit better still down a lot though and I still have random thoughts of suicide from time to time. I don’t know why but I find my anger flaring up a lil more. Just random things **** me off a lot, from the way mom talks to me like a child too people who are just too nosy. On a good note someone said hi on plentyoffish seems like a really nice gal, I’m kinda scared of the idea of another relationship still.
Avatar n tn basically, I have 3 scabs on my right shoulder area that won't heal, and in fact continue to expand in area. What concerned me is that two also appeared on my face, one on my right temple and one below the lip (the soul-patch area). They occasionally ooze a bit, (normally at the instant I pick them off). Then of course there is the "standard set:" scabs flaking off revealing open wound, mild oozing, and cycling over. Could someone possibly clarify what's happening?
Avatar m tn Recently I also have a brown spot on my lip, no texture. And I have a lump on my arm that won't go away, it sort of looks like a bite, but wont heal. Just wondering if these things could be related or if any are likely concern for melanoma. Thank you!
Avatar m tn Greetings, It has been 2~weeks since my minor surgery to extract the mucocele from the lower left lip., the stitches are gone now but my lip still seems a bit swollen still. It is noticeable because my friend pointed it out to me. I am wondering will this go away? will my lip be aligned normally again. Thank you for your time Dr. Bhupinder.
Avatar m tn This past Summer I moved to Atlanta for an internship from North Carolina. My face has been breaking out, I've had these red bumps above my lip for over a month, and the dermatologist creams haven't done a bit of good. They tested one of the bumps above my lip to see if it was a cold sore and it came back negative, I've been washing my face with Cerave face wash for oily skin because my face sweats a lot in this climate, but it hasn't done anything for the red bumps I have above my lip.
Avatar n tn how to continue breastfeeding where it doesn't hurt so bad without taking a 24 hour break to let my nipples heal
Avatar m tn Over the past 5 they have become more infrequent, perhaps once a year. The location historically has always been the same - top lip close to the right corner and as the years have gone by they seem to be less intense and more on the inside of my lip, not right on the edge or outside. I have always been able to feel and anticipate the tingles and warn my partners not to kiss me and that were not having oral sex. My question is about an incident this last friday night.
Avatar n tn I also had a canker sore on my lip from when I bit it. I saw my dentist about the swelling on my palate. He did a percussion test on my tooth and there was some sensitivity. My x-ray did not show an absess either. The provider cleaned the tooth that the swelling was underneath and opened up the swollen area in case of pus. Well after that I developed a very painful wound where the swollen gum tissue was.
Avatar n tn I also noticed a similiar white mark on the edge of her bottom lip (similiar to one of the white marks on my bottom lip). This past weekend I am sunburnt from an all day outdoors rock concert, and that could attribute to the damage of my lips. -Here are pictures to try and show you the problem in better detail. lips1- lips2- lips3-
Avatar n tn The original thread about it spreading to the chin and different parts of the face, and also the chest is very scary to me because I'm having my first outbreak on my lip. I have a little bit of acne on my jaw area and so I'm worried that in those areas where the skin is a little bit broken it might get infected by the outbreak on my lip. And the eyes. Can that happen, comments? Also, is Zovirax an effective medication for this?
Avatar n tn This area did NOT have a blister on it or anything like that but since splitting, has begun to heal (much like a canker sore). I didn't notice until lat night (I've noticed this thing for the last 3 days or so) that I have one (maybe two) tiny tiny white blisters right by where my lip split. I went to a dermatologist yesterday who said that because of where the cut is (and I also pointed out where I saw the blisters) that this would be more likely than not a canker sore.
148691 tn?1260198503 I was gonna put some orajel to numb it but then I thought I should just let it dry and heal by itself... it's just a scrape after all....??? ARGH!!! I'm freaking out for a scrape in my baby's chin.....

Avatar f tn If the irritation on his lip is from my yeast infection, how can we cure it? Just let it heal on it's own? We won't be having sex for awhile, since I had my surgery I can't for 3 weeks so I thought this would be the best time to figure out what it going on. Once again we have been with each other for 4 years off & on and I know for a fact we have been with only each other for at least a year & a half and nothing like this has ever happened before.
Avatar f tn Docs, I recently recieved oral sex. Now I'm a bit concerned. I noticed a "sore" (not cluster) near the head of my penis. It's still there 2 wks later, no crusting over, no burning but it's still there! I did not notice a cold sore on the females lip at the time of oral sex. I am a nurse which makes me worry more. It had like a small "cut like" place in the center of the "sore" my main question: how common is oral to genital herpes?
358455 tn?1277437219 My family was camping last night and my 2 yr old daughter fell and busted her lip on a log! poor thing bled so much the front of her shirt was soaked. we had her cleaned up with our first aid kit and there are clearly two cuts, one inside and one out. I have never dealt with this type of injury, my oldest has never so much as fell hard! DH says shes fine and the swelling is already going down, she is able to eat and drink but if something rubs it wrong or something she cries.
