Cracked lips cure

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips cure

lip

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 f tn The infection (or whatever it was) spread a little farther than the edges of my lips. I went to the doctor who was able to cure the thrush but could do nothing about my lips. He gave me different topical creams, none of which seemed to work. I started using hydrocortisone cream, but that didn't seem to help at all either. My lips would start to clear and when I'd think they were healed, it would come back.

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 m tn It seems that not only my lips but the area surrounding my lips are also peeling. I just want to know if there's a good cure out there, I've tried all the usual stuff and I've stumbled on a the Angular Cheilitis Foundation that guarantees some sort of miracle home remedy but charges an incredibly 67$ for it, which is pretty insanely high for a "foundation". I just want to know if there's any other way out of this horrible condition.
Avatar n tn I HAVE LIVED WITH PROBLEM CRACKED RED DRY LIPS SINCE CHILDHOOD HOWEVER BECAUSE OF POOR MEDICAL SERVICES IN MY COUNTRY, I HAVE NEVER SOUGHT TREATMENT UNTILL NOW. WHEN I WAS STILL YOUNG AT ABOUT 18 YEARS OF AGE, MY LIPS WOULD CRACK AND EVEN BLEED WITH ALOT OF PAIN IN THE CRACKS. AS I GREW UP, THIS HARD CRACKING REDUCED BECAUSE I COULD CHEW THEM ALMOST ALL THE TIME. AT THE MOMMENT MY LIPS ARE RED WITH SCAR LIKE SPOTS ON THE LOWER LIP THAT MAKES ME VERY UNCONRFOTABLE TO EVEN SPEAK TO PEOPLE.

Avatar n tn Although the doctors say that these two are not related, something makes me feel that the problem with my lips could have been triggered by Herpes Zoaster(because when I search the internet for diseases related to lips, in some links I find a mention of Herpes). I just hope that someone finds a cure for this.
405614 tn?1329147714 Yes peeling can go along with cracked lips. You won't like this part of the answer but being outside at all those soccer games probably has a lot to do with the lack of moisture in your lips. Try not to lick you lips - that only makes it worse. the other option could be your are dry from an allergic reaction to something, but if that's the case I would still say its in tandem with those soccer games!
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 Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning and she said swelling like this (tongue, lips) is called angiodema. She said if I continue to expose myself to this allergen (whatever it may be) the next stage could be anaphylaxis. I'm really scared. I have 2 little kids and I'm terrified of something happening. I can't avoid the allergen if I don't know what it is.:( Please help.
Avatar n tn Hi , I have a habit to chew my lips so that my lips first layer corrupted now the layers coming and automatically falling down.Now i am using lot many creams but no result.how can i cure my lips its very irritating.

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 ).

Avatar n tn I was looking for something else & found the above comments. About 2 yrs. ago, or when ever pro health crest came out, I was one of the first to try it. Until I read all comments, I never associated the skin inside the mouth. Thinking back, it was a little while after brushing & i had changed to P.H. Crest. I didn't care much for it & switched to something else & i haven't had it since.
Avatar n tn The skin just inside the labia was irritated and cracked (almost like really chapped lips) and inside the cracks were bright red. It was so itchy and painful. I used these vaginal capsules (can't remember the name) and it eventually cleared right up. But it is of great importance that you see a doctor. If you buy and use over-the-counter yeast infection medicine and it's not a yeast infection, you could makes things a lot worse.
Avatar f tn Thousands of people are suffering with Brachioradial Pruritus, including myself, in my tenth year. It is the most maddening disease and I have learned of no cure. Ice is the ONLY thing to provide relief, and acupuncture has not been effective for me. I have tried all the expensive prescription and steroid creams to no avail. I am losing sleep, and my sanity, b/c it keeps me up all night. I am staying out of the sun, but every year, this persists until December or January.

Avatar m tn I have no open sores or cuts in my mouth but because of my medicines, my lips are always dry and have cuts on them. Even before the medicines my lips were always cracked. I tried everything about them, I use lip care balms but they don't cure it just hides them. And my partners generaly don't use condom in oral sex. What should I do? Even with the situation of my lips, is the risk still low?
Avatar n tn At first I thought it was just chapped lips, and I have this habit of licking my lips which might have made it worse. I think I also drool at my sleep when I lay to the side, and the side with the Angular Cheilis is also consistent with which side I usually lay on (side I usually drool at) Since at first I thought it was just chapped lips, I bought a Neutrogena Skinaid (Glycerin and Pramoxine Hydrochloride) which the box says should relieve minor cuts, chapping, cracking, etc..

Avatar n tn 16 days ago, I noticed my lips felt a bit cracked, as if they were sunburned (I was outdoors at the time). 3 days later they were worse, in spite of frequent application of plain vaseline (the usual cure) and began to feel as if I had come into contact with capsaicin (as luck would have it, when preparing dinner, I had a minor brush with a hot pepper, and had to apply ice for over an hour).
Avatar m tn This condition has remained constant for the last 30 days. The lips remain dry and cracked, but there have been no blisters or sores--just dry, cracked lips which remain sticky when pressed together. Apparently that kid had some sort of lip infection and passed it on to me. Do the symptoms sound familiar, and is there a cure? I haven't been able to get to a dermatologist since I am in a medically underserved area of Indiana.
Avatar f tn Doctor said us probably something viral and prescribed medicene to help symptoms. I have NEVER had chapped peeling lips ever. The medicene seemed to help, but now that I have finished it, the area is becoming red and sore again. If I put anything to soften the area, it becomes red and so on entire upper lip and above it. If I put nothing on it, it become dry, peeling and cracked. Either way I have no idea what is causing it or why. Can anyone please help me?? I have no answers.
