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.

168732 tn?1311715679 I had/have what feels like really chapped lips but just in the corners. My mouth droops (like a frown) now, with the side effects of the meds, and I catch myself every now and then almost drooling from the corners. That's probably where my chapness comes from. I just carry around lip balm all the time now.
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 n tn Stomatitis is an inflammation of the mucous lining of any of the structures in the mouth and Irritation and fissuring in the corners of the lips is termed angular stomatitis. Most common causes are iron deficiency anemia, or vitamin B deficiencies.They can also be caused by allergies and infections.Try taking some iron supplements and multivitamins for some days and see if the sumptoms persist.If they persist,then celiac disease or other causes of malnutrition have to be ruled out.
Avatar m tn lotion then i normally would use - but found i still had dry cracked skin in corners of my mouth. then i remembered somthing i used to use for my kids (recommended by our beach lifeguards) when they got really dry, crakced lips from the ocean. it's called "aquaphor", and you can get it at any drug store, supermarket. it kinda feels like vaseline, but it works much better, and really fast. i just put it on my lips when i go to bed, and i'm usually fine the next day.
Avatar n tn Cracked corners of the lips has plagued me for the past year. The only thing I found that keeps it under control is a prescription ointment called ertaczo. The cracks used to extend from the mouth about an inch diagonally to my chin. They hurt like heck when I smile, eat, even speak unless I'm using the ertaczo. I haven't had inner mouth problems (yet) but Ia lot of people here seem to swear by "Magic Mouth Wash.
230202 tn?1370797179 The corners of my mouth were splitting, lips also dry. Dentist recommened Vitamin E capsules twice a say. Cleared it right up! As others have said, increase the water. Try a nice ointment, someone mentioned Vaseline. Also had problems with my heels. Just another sx. of tx.

Avatar f tn licking your lips, which is common when they are dry and irritated, but that tends to irritate the lips even more. When the corners of the lips are cracked, bacteria and yeast that are normally present in the mouth can get into those cracks when there is some dripping of saliva at nighttime and cause more inflammation.
Avatar f tn If the cracking is on the outside at the corners of the lips, one of the gals here mentioned using Vagisil successfully.
Avatar n tn Alright, well, first off, since I was a child, I've been getting cracked lips on the corners of my mouth on rare occasions. I'm now 17 years old, and I still get them every once in awhile during the cold weather, or if I don't get enough hydration, but since I've been drinking lots of water, these cracked lips haven't appeared in a long time. Well, at least until recently.
Avatar m tn Environmental conditions like wind, dry air and too much sun exposure can cause chapped lips, which leave redness in the corners of your mouth. 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.
Avatar m tn I had extremely dry, cracked skin on the corners of my mouth which caused me to not be able to open it very far, as well as the small painful blisters on the top of my mouth. This finally went away, but I now have this small patch of what looks to be clear blisters forming on the center of my upper lip. I've tried chap sticks and carmex, but neither have seemed to work; they only irritate it more.
Avatar f tn If there is any fissuring of the corners of the mouth then angular cheilitis should be ruled out. When the corners of the lips are cracked, bacteria and yeast that are normally present in the mouth can get into those cracks when there is some dripping of saliva at nighttime and cause more inflammation.
Avatar m tn Your body is a good investment. Right now the corners of my mouth are doing a lot better. My lips are getting better and better and I’m so thankful to GOD that HE showed me that Splenda and Sucralose is trsh! if you have any questions or comments please e-mail me at ***@****. have a great, blessed day!
Avatar f tn I get cracked lips on the corners of my mouth about once a month. My doctor tested me for the herpes simplex virus and I tested positive. 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 However let me clarify, is the peeling only associated with the lips and does not involve the corners of the mouth? Or did it start from the corners of the mouth and eventually involved the lips? A differential will be cheilosis. An allergic reaction to certain external factors like cosmetics, facial cleaners, smoke,dust and other unknown triggers may also be considered.
Avatar n tn Irritation and fissuring in the corners of the lips is termed angular stomatitis. It can also extend to lips and area around it. In all probability you could also have very dry lips. A lip balm preferably petroleum jelly, Vit B supplements, iron, and honey should help. If it does not please consult a skin specialist. There is one very simple thing that I would like to tell you. Lip area when it heals, forms a scab like dry layer.
Avatar f tn Everything they make has made my lips worse and caused cracked corners in my lips. I like Blistex, Burt's Bees, and for daytime when I want a little color, Maybelline Baby Lips. I really like Blistex Deep Renewal for whenever. I wear it alone and under lipstick. When I have really bad cracked lips in the corners, I use Eucerin cream and glob it on the corners (you're doing it right when you look ready for a night out ;) ) of my lips until they clear up.
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. This happened very suddenly, without any changes in lifestyle.
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 f tn Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) deficiency presents with angular cheilitis (cracked corners of the mouth), atrophic glossitis (inflamed tongue) and a rash on the face that resembles seborrhoeic dermatitis. Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (vitamin B3) and presents with the three ‘d’s: diarrhoea; dementia and dermatitis on sun-exposed areas. Cheilitis and glossitis are also a feature.
173975 tn?1216261375 The sore red bump on the bridge of the nose near my left eye is, the NP says, either a pimple or an embedded follicle or something. Cracks on the corners of the lips are mouth thrush. If this keeps up I definitely WON'T need a Halloween costume. :( Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
Avatar n tn I'm not sure if you found a solution or diagnosis yet, but if someone has matching symptoms then they should look up "milia on the lips". In some cases it looks white and in others it stays pretty similarly coloured to the lips.
Avatar n tn Hello, Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough,but it sounds like oil glands or Fordyce spots.They are small yellowish-white granules on the inner surface and border of the lips. Treatment of Fordyce spots includes CO2 laser or electro desiccation, TCA chemical peels(temporary treatment),diathermy or laser vaporization. For your dry lips, avoid licking the lips as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before.
Avatar m tn Went well all winter then last week I woke up and my lips we're so chapped, I yawned and the corners of my mouth cracked. 3 cuts on both sides for a total of 6 cracks.. ouch! Also the areas around the corner are numb. There is a burning pain all day and the edges of my mouth are itchy. This has been going for 4 days now. I've used vaseline and changed to medicated blistex but no relief. Any help would be great.
