Avatar m tn I have had a crack in the right corner of my lips since October and I have no idea why. All I know it very painful, especially if I open my mouth wider to bite into something and when I am eating, which just seems to open the crack even more. I have been to see my go who thought that I might have an iron deficiency. However, my blood results came back normal. About a month ago, he prescribed me hydrocortisone cream to apply to it once daily.
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 f tn I have cracked corner lips what should I use ? Should I use cortisone 10 ? With aloe or miconazole cream that is for yeast infections which I know is proven to help.
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 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.
Avatar m tn If you peel this dry skin, the healing process starts all over again with dry skin on your lip. Dehydration is the commonest cause of dry cracked lips. Drink plenty of water and see. The other possibility is iron and Vit B deficiency. Along with multivitamin B (not a multivitamin which also has other vitamins) take an iron preparation and see. They can also be caused by allergies and infections. You could either be suffering from contact dermatitis or from allergy to some food.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I have had a problem with my lips for about the last 18 months. The lower lip is swollen and parts of the skin go through a cycle of being red and sore, drying, and eventually falling off. The upper lip is also effected around the bottom, in the middle, but only slightly. Whenever I eat the lips tend to swell slightly and the skin around the lower lip goes red. After researching this site, I believe it is cheilitis. I think I have had angular cheilitis when I was 18.
Avatar n tn I have had dry, swollen, cracked, peeling skin on my eyelids which has become progressively worse over 7 years. Have been prescribed cortisone but only is an overnight cure. Is this exceme? or psoriasis? or allergies? How can I get over this??? HELP!!!
Avatar f tn Recently I had cracked the corner of my lips very badly. It started to get red and crusty. My mom thought it was a cold sore, so we put that stuff on it for a day. I then read up on Angular Cheilitis, thought it was that, and started putting anti-fungal creme on it. Now, it is no better and red bumps are appearing around the corner of my mouth.. What are these, and what should I do?
Avatar f tn However, after stopping using the cream, my lips were cracked and dry and tingling. I tried different lip balms, such as Carmex and Burt's Bee, to heal them, but then the burning and itchiness came back! I then start taking lypsine and applying the zovirax cream. They seemed to be working and now I don't feel the burning and itchy sense,just occasional tingle, but my lips are very very dry and cracked. Should I use the lip balms again?
Avatar f tn the coners of my mouth are cracked and now all around the mouth/lips area is extremely red and is burning/itchy. I always use the same type of chapstick, and i havent used any new lipgloss or make up so im trying to figure out what it could be. today i woke up and now noticed there are very very tiny bump like things that when touched/popped have a clear fluid come out of them. I have tried vasoline and neosporine and nothing is helping!!!
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 For the last 4+ weeks I've had a crack/cut in the corner of my lips/mouth. The worst spot since its constantly stretching. The cut goes from the corner of the lip into the skin. It keeps trying to heal, but because I cant keep my mouth closed (lol), it keeps reopening. I thought I cut myself shaving but realize now it must be related to tx. Also, I'm noticing other marks, blotchy almost cold sore looking on my lower lips...
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 i live in the same house as my sister and her boyfreind who i recently found out have oral herpes. about a week ago my sisters boyfreind had a herpes sore on the corner of his mouth. 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.
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago, I went to visit my physician regarding a problem I had with a ring of redness around my lips - more prominent on my bottom lip - it was a lighter, tender pink shade and kind of looked like I had been drinking lots of red kool-aid. I also had constant dry, cracked and bleeding lips, and tried everything from drinking plenty of water and making sure I wasn't licking them.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Technically speaking, as long as your lips aren't cracked, you can used infected chapstick without breaking out in little bumps. But definitely not recommended because it's usually very hard to tell if you have lesions or not. Ok here's what I did to cure it: 1. Clean the lip of any chapstick. 2. Take a cue tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and rolled it over the infected area a couple times. (**see note below) 3. Let the alcohol dry off/evaporate. 4. Cover lips in antibacterial ointment.

Avatar n tn I got antihistamine and they retreated a little but have not fully gone. The corner of my lips have cracked and broken open. The first moment I noticed them was on a very hot night. I was not exposed to sunlight, but I was to heat for about 2 days. I am writing this a week after the occurance. The itch has spread to my genitals. I have not been exposed to poison ivy or the like. I discontinued use of lip balm as of today. My lips are getting better as my genitals seem to itch more.

Avatar n tn For over two months I had severe dry, cracked, burning, and itching sensations on and around my lips. Sometimes they hurt so much I couldn't touch them because they felt like a layer of skin burned off. My dermatologist said I had some form of dermatitis. She said something about an allergic reaction to the sun probably because I ingested or used something which then caused that reaction (but said I'm not actually allergic to the sun ).
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 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.
Avatar n tn 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 Doc says not herpes, but also thinks Riba sx. But has spread an inch or so from each corner of mouth and is irritating. Have tried Neosporin, balms and a steroid cream, but not much help. Could it be fungal or yeast??? What products would anyone suggest? Thanks, G.
