Avatar n tn i have been suffering for about 2 months with cracked lips at the corners of my mouth please can you help ive tried vasaline which helps it from hurting but its not clearing up
Avatar n tn For 2 months I have suffered with dry cracked lips, redness in corners of mouth. Moisture tends to collect in corners of mouth. I feel like if I smile my mouth is stretching. I am constantally wiping the moisture out of the corners of my mouth. My lips have a burning sensation inside and out. Mouthwash sets me on fire, but just the anterior portion of my mouth. I have tried many kinds of chapstick. The redness in the corners of my mouth is spreading. It is very embarassing.
Avatar n tn What is a 58 year old, professional/married woman, (otherwise healthy) doing up at 4:00 am searching the internet for a solution to a medical problem that she has been to a doctor three time over the past month? Desperate...I woke up with my lips burning. On April 24th, I volunteered at a local art event which was held in a factory. My station was close to furnaces and it was hot and the next day my lips were chapped.
168732 tn?1311715679 It's OK to put Lotrimin on your mouth? Do they make a special one for lips? I've been having the same issues at the corners of my mouth. Never connected it with tx though, just thought it was me. Lip balm isn't helping.
Avatar n tn I dont have cracked lips, no dentures, drink a fair amount of water, and no cracks in the corner of my mouth. Perhaps it is from breathing through my mouth too much? Thanks. Rob.
163305 tn?1333672171 I've been getting sores right in the corner of my mouth, where my lips meet. Though the cream I use for canker sores was getting rid of them, this week, it's not working. The sore is related to tx, not a big deal, but annoying. Any suggestions ?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn Once i apply these things my lips seem fine but after maybe a couple hours they would start having some skin hanging off even with the chapstick on and it would get very ichy. Also rashes sometimes form at the corner of my mouths too.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Although they have the apperance of being very sore. When I had eczema of the lips before, it effected the whole layer of both lips and was incredibly itchy. So does anyone have any ideas as to what this condition could be? Has anyone had patch testing for their condition and did it give any helpful results? Any help is much appreciated as you can probably imagine. Robhh - As for the stess part, I am convinced that it plays a key role in triggering the condition.
Avatar f tn Angular cheilitis 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. You can also apply small amounts of athlete’s foot cream which is available over the counter.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn A deficiency in iron or riboflavin can cause lips to chap and corner of mouth to redden. Angular cheilitis is an inflammatory condition that affects the corners of your mouth, leaving them red, cracked, blistered, bleeding or painful. Keep your lips and corners of mouth covered in lip balm containing petrolatum. You can try a multivitamin and a b12 suplement.Since this problem is persisting since a long time it is best to seek the opinion of a dermatologist in a medical college.
Avatar f tn My lips started to tingle, burn, and then presented little white bumps in the corner of my mouth and also little bumps on my top lip that can only be seen when the lip is stretched. It's been like that for 3 months now and I think I'm going to go get it looked at. They don't always burn or tingle and when they do it is only for a few minutes. My only concern is that it doesn't go away on it's own....... Sound like Chelitis?
Avatar m tn I also would put a little bit of neosporin on the corner of my mouth, particularly at night. Mine did not go away until I was done with tx, but I was able to keep it from hurting too much by keeping those things on it! Good luck.
Avatar f tn So he is treating my angular cheilitis, cracked lips at the corner of mouth, for this. However all it is are cracked lips. No sores or scabs. I understand that the herpes simplex virus presents in this way. Could this be a different condition? What else could be causing this?
Avatar n tn Last week I had cracks in the corner of my lips from dry lips which are currently healed, and now there are several little bumps across the surface of my lips that are not visible unless you look real hard for them. When I rub my lips together they feel like sand paper. What is wrong with me?
Avatar m tn Swollen Lips Red Patches on Lips, Extending to Exterior Area Severely Itchy Cracks at Corners of Mouth Discoloration of Lips in which they become Lighter in Color around the Red Patches No Sores in Mouth No Sore Throat Consistently Dry Feeling - as though nothing (literally) can be absorbed by my lips Red Ring Surrounding Edges of Lips I don't know what to do.

Avatar n tn I used a q-tip to dab the honey into my lips and the corners of my mouth. It may sting a little at first. Wait for 10-15 mins and rinse away. Immediately after using, the pain disappeared and my lips became smooth and were not that swollen anymore. Then I applied my organic moisturizer and sunflower oil for vit E to the corners of my mouth and organic lip balm on my lips. My lips felt really great.
Avatar m tn I am 16 years old, asian girl have the exact same symtom. There is discoloration at the corner of my lips streaching dowm toward the bottom of my face. There is no pain or itch. It feels normal. The only sign that i have is the discoloration. I don't remember having it as a kid but the pigment is starting to get darker and more noticable as I age. I don't think it come from any makeup or any products that am using now because it it was there before.
173975 tn?1216261375 and the corner of my mouth is cracked, dry sore...won't go away...put carmex on all the time but doesnt seem to be healing it....as far as the breakouts...i feel like a leper...they are in places i have never broken out and they don't heal with zit cream, antibiotic ointment..etc...look like boils..some of them....and they hurt so bad....even have some on my scalp...have some hair loss now...if i run my hands through my hair i get a nice handful...
Avatar n tn the next day, it spread at the bottom of my lips. the third day, when i woke up it was crusty and itchy. my story kind of sounds similar to the ones above. when you guys mentioned about your chapstics, i recalled losing mine then finding it on the floor 5 minutes later. so i'm thinking it is bacterial infection rather than a cold sore. so anybody please help me and tell me if it is a bacterial infection and what i can do to make my lips back to normal. i highly appreciate it. thanks.

Avatar m tn Sometime after week 12, I was at the dentist and he noticed the cracked corners of my lips. That caused him to look inside my mouth where there were white patches of fungus. He called it Angular Cheilitis. He then spoke with my Hepatologist who approved an oral fungacide named Fluconsole. I took it for 30 days then stopped and it came right back, so I quess I will have to take it until EOT. See this link to see if it resembles your problem. Topical fungacides might work in your case.

Avatar m tn 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.
