1711722 tn?1356491154 I am on VIC. Even with my water intake, I noticed earlier this week (Week 10) that my lips were chapped, my skin is dry and my hair is parched. Time for some changes again. Any recommendations?? Thanks for your thoughts. Oh, since beginning VIC, I also have this weird side effect of milky white stuff in the corner of my eyes. Doesn't hurt or itch, but I wondered if anyone else had this side. Thanks.
1712670 tn?1308445570 My lips have started to feel raw, like they are cracked or something. They don't hurt or bleed. They are like that for a couple of days and then they get hard and rough feeling and itchy. I keep them slathered with Carmex and after three or four days, they are very soft. Then a week or so later it starts all over again. What could be the problem?
Avatar m tn (or maybe I was just to out of it to notice) I've kept up my water intake as I did with tx and lately I'm drinking even more. Never had cracked lips or dry mouth the entire tx but now it has really set in. Why now? Very strange drugs.
Avatar n tn Dehydration is the commonest cause of dry cracked lips. Drink plenty of water and see. The other possibility is iron and Vit B deficiency. A lip balm preferably petroleum jelly, Vit B supplements, iron, and honey should help. They can also be caused by allergies and infections. You could either be suffering from contact dermatitis or from allergy to some food. You should get an allergy test done, either a skin test or RAST, to know what you are allergic to.
Avatar n tn There could be some sort of infection in your lips. Is there any pain along with the feverish lips? I would call your dr and see if they can check you out just to make sure nothing is wrong! Good luck!
Avatar f tn I was thinking about splurging a little on a lip scrub from sephora because it really bothers me to have cracked, peeling lips
230202 tn?1370797179 Hi everyone. At 21 weeks into treatment, my lips have cracked and on one ocassion they bled. I have a good quality lip balm and that helps at times but I was wondering what others might have used or done to combat this problem. It sort of comes and goes like the severity of the cracking. thank you all......
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.

Avatar m tn my lips were cracked while on tx. my study nurse told me to use tinactin. she said it was an infection like fungus. it really worked for me. i know it sounds weird but it's great. good luck.
Avatar f 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 but you appear to be taking enough fluids. 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 Chronic chapped lips can result from nutritional deficiencies(vitamin B)and dehydration, or over exposure to sun or cold and windy conditions. Avoid licking the lips as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before. Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips.

Avatar m tn another thing though, say I get done eating, If i take a napkin or anything to wipe my face, even extremely gently, the sides of my lips get red, and stay like that the whole day. I know it's not dehydration, I ONLY drink water, and I drink alot, it's not a vitamin deficiency I take my multi vitamins What's going on with my lips, it's terrible, I don't want to leave my house looking like a clown each day.
Avatar m tn About 12 hours after this experience my lips were extremely dry and cracked and now they feel tingly. I don't know if this is just the effects of dehydration after a night out or something more sinister. Can stuff flare up that quick? I've put vaseline on and my lips are more moisturised but this a little tingly!

Avatar n tn Dry lips in a small child are usually a sign of dehydration and deficiencies. Dehydration is the commonest cause of dry cracked lips. The other possibility is iron and Vit B deficiency. Your child may need iron and vitamin B preparations. Also you may need to increase his fluid intake. While your child is having dry lips apply lip balm (preferably petroleum jelly) and see. Applying honey also help as it has wound healing properties.

Avatar n tn They LOOK red and cracked, but don't feel sore or dry. Somebody recommended vitamin E for this so I recently started taking supplements to make up for the lack of it in my diet and have noticed an improvement there, but not with my knuckles! Also, the problem looks worse when I have put some kind of strain on my fingers (or the skin), e.g when I have been writing, or carrying heavy bags!
Avatar f tn But in the last 3 years or so I have been having issues around my lips on my face. Mainly on the right side. They itch so much while I sleep that I scratch them in my sleep not even knowing that I am doing it. I wake myself up sometimes from scratching them. It's always my lower lip line that I am scratching and right corner area. I wake up and the skin is cracked, red, dry, itching, burning and sometimes oozing a clear watery liquid from where the skin is broken.
Avatar n tn It started as a bad head cold on Tues and Wed with diarhea the progressed to a bad cough. On Friday and Saturday I woke up with lips so cracked and dry they were bleeding...Finally, Sat I went to the ER afraid of dehydration. THey sent me home saying I was not dehydrated (they did not do any bloodworkk or an u/s as I had no pain)....although my blood pressure was elavated 132 over 80 and I am a rock steady 110 over 70...anyway, last night I was up most off the night with the cough, chills, etc.
547181 tn?1255150106 We have multiple side effects from folks that include cracked lips, sores on the tongue, dry itchy skin and so on... Including dry eyes and more. SO - my suggestion would be to drink as much water as possible - without drowning yourself --- and as practical. Don't go too overboard and get waterlogged --- LOL! - But yanno - keep yourself well hydrated. Consider yourself on a marathon to save your life. Your body is going to be fighting harder than it ever has before.
Avatar n tn I'm so glad that there are people who understand the extent of this problem. I am 14 years old and have had dry, cracked, peeling lips that are raised in the corners and also split. I enter into a 3-4 day cycle of them being really sore and splitting and then peeling extensively and bleeding. This has been occuring for about a year now. I am sick of people offering me lip balm as I know it dosn't work.

Avatar f tn Do you have a persistent rash? Do you have the dry skin we usually have? Are you getting cracked lips, which is a sure sign of dehydration? Pay close attention to your digestive organs, back pain, sternum pain, diarriah and or constipation consistency....
Avatar n tn Upon checking it out and speaking to my mother (an RN) she said this could be easily attributed to the doctor doing work in my mouth, the penicillin, dehydration, or could just be chapped lips. The burning has since subsided, but it is still uncomfortable and dry, but not chapped!
Avatar f tn I have been experiencing cracked, peeling lips and a very salty taste in my mouth for approx 2 yrs. I have been to GP, ENT (who has put me on a round of steroids and want an MRI to brain, Dentist (worried about gold crown) Gastro, you name it and am so frustrated. Have Post Nasal Drip but ENT blew that off, looking for a taste disorder. Calling Dentist today to see if Gold Crown touches old filling and if that could cause this. Starts as soon as I brush my teeth.
Avatar m tn Is dry mouth a seasonal thing? Also, my lips are cracked too. and it's weird cause I'm inside mostly.. And no I don't think I'm dehyrdated... my urine is pretty light yellow cause I've been drinking lots of water.
Avatar n tn Signs of dehydration: Not urinating every 8 hours, dry/cracked lips and dry mouth, press on her nail beds, and they should turn white with pressure but should immediately "pink up" when you release the pressure. The main thing is the urinating. If she hasn't urinated w/in 8 hours, she is dehydrated. They need to check for things like appendicitis, however, it is a great sign that the other kids have been throwing up. That's a good indication that its a virus.
