Cracked lips fungus

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips fungus


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 My son has a blister like fungus that keeps re-occurring on his fingers. It usually begins like a blood blister, on the palm side and between the joints of his fingers. Within a few days, it will be increasingly more blistered like, begin to swell and look like a fever blister that would appear on a person's lip. He does get the herpes type fever blisters on his lips occassionally, but can be treated with Abreva.
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 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 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 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 I went and got my prescription and they told me to just get the real yeast infection medicine… well I felt kind of strange putting it on my lips but I did. So the next day, I woke up and saw that my lips had broken out into a kind of red rash. (actually it was the yeast trying to escape my mouth…aka causing the rash.) So later I went to another doctor and he wasn’t really sure about it so he prescribed me an antibiotic called Sumycin. With insurance it was still $28.
Avatar n tn Our saliva contains enzymes which are protein substances that may irritate the lining of the lips. The lips unlike the skin has a thinner outer layer and may easily be irritated. In your case, refrain from the habit of frequently licking the lips. A consult with a dermatologist may be able to help. A fungal infection may also be an underlying cause. However let me clarify, is the peeling only associated with the lips and does not involve the corners of the mouth?
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 f tn I moisturize and keep my feet clean and dry, and understand I can probably never rid the foot of the fungus. Is there anything I can do or take in terms of supplements or external application to at least minimize the problem. I take yoga and pilates and sometimes refrain from doing so when I am embarrassed about this problem. I am a 67 year old female but age is not really a factor since this has been a recurring situation since my 30's. Thanks for any advice you might have.
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 m tn Not sure if this is a fungus, a case of herpes (HSV), or what ?? Severely chapped lips, darkened, shaded on the edges, cracked, dry lip tissue. What's going on ? Of course, I'd be able to research elsewhere online (other forums) or even get a pro diagnosis, from an online medical professional. Site/Resource Recommendations ?
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.
168732 tn?1311715679 Pharmacist said to start with Clotrimazole - Lotramin - anti-fungus, same as used for athletes's foot, etc. I guess I have "athletes mouth"! (Better than jock mouth....
Avatar n tn I've recently had two very uncomfortable bouts of rashes occurring on my lips and penis at the same time. The first came about eight weeks ago. It began with what looked like tiny, slightly burning, tingling blisters at the corners of my lips (both sides). Within a day, dozens of tiny bumps in clusters of lines began to form at the top edge of my top lip. These tiny bumps (size of head of pin) then spread to my lower lip (only the parts exposed to the air).
Avatar n tn Hello! I have a rash/cracked lips on the bottom lip , and its been going on for two months , I have tried everything. I have tried about 4 or 5 creams , and nothing! What is this and what can I do for it do go away???
Avatar f tn The last few times my symptoms have gotten worse after each prescription. My lips are dry and cracking, my tougn is whit and cracked. Even my eyes are getting blurry. I've been to an infectious disease doctor and he said that having a the fungus in my blood was very rare however he did no testing. What should I do? I'm miserable.
Avatar n tn He thinks it may be a yeast infection or fungus. also the corners of my lips only are cracked and ulcerated, not the inside of my mouth whatsover, also I no burning or pain urinating or discharge. Any ideas what this could be?
Avatar f tn I was working in the service industry then, but not now. I dont know if I am having this as a result of an allergic reaction, or is it a fungus or a staph infection or some kind of bacterial infection or yeast infection or something else? This is 15 years later and now its back, I have chapped skin under my nose and all around my mouth and lips and also under my eye, it almost looks like I have a black eye because of the redness and swelling. It is now on my hands and fingers.
Avatar f tn They seem to come back especially after masturbation but there is no pain while doing this. Also my penis becomes very dry with a few cracked lines on the tip. There are also one or two red spots under neath the penis tip but none on the shaft. I also have a cut inside my top lip but they are not painful but I have always had problems with my lips as they become very dry in the winter. I'm just so wondering what this could be.

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 n tn I thought it was just a case of severe chapped lips but it won''t go away.The corners of my mouth feel to be cracked and leaking.I don't see any blisters or lesions anywhere.Have used several types of lip balm and nothing seems to help...actualy makes them burn more.Could this be a fungal or yeast infection.Could this be a fungas or yeast infection?I am male by the way.
13083825 tn?1428486173 Perhaps you could get a small jar and see if it works for you. I put some on my grandson's cracked lips and it worked really well. Of course your problem is more than just cracked lips. But as you have tried other things, it is worth having a go.
Avatar m tn the outside on my lips and chin were healed with that.thank god but my borders of my lips were still itchy and corners still cracked. i went to see another doctor now because it was already more than 1 month i have been through and my lips were slightly swollen. now this doctor checked my mouth and saw white lesion and told me its actually oral candiasis also known as oral thrush. it was a yeast infection. he gave nystatin oral drops and piriton to prevent swollen lips.
Avatar n tn I have tried the olive oil and sugar mix for two days with no relief at all. My lips are burning and cracked along the edges.
1224706 tn?1267223743 For me, blisters (developed from hives), burning mouth, itching skin, swollen lips, cracked lips, were signs of food allergies. When I had the excessive blisters, I also had (undiagnosed) kidney stones. I have had traditional and non traditional allergy tests over the years. I have also learned to listen to my body. For example, I made a new recipe for pizza crust. When I eat it, my mouth becomes excessively dry and the insides of my cheeks swell up.
Avatar n tn I advise you to call the allergist and ask whether this is what she thinks you have. I would call the dermatologist to ask whether the foot rash is indeed fungus, because it doesn't sound like it. I would also share your anxieties about STD's and AIDS--your symptoms don't even remind me of those, so perhaps the dermatologist can say the same thing, or else order tests if needed.
Avatar n tn My penis recently broke out with skin ripping off (exposing a bright pink underneath skin) which has burned very bad, the rim around the penis on the right side is swollen and is producing a white goo (could be fungus), it has an odd odor and the cracked skin spread throughout the head of my penis and now it burns every time I have to go use the bathroom, and my boxers constantly stick to the penis where the cracks are trying to heal only re-ripping the skin.
Avatar n tn (Regarding cold sores on the lips - I rarely get blisters, but rather tingling tight cracking lips which I treat with zovirax immediately. I can also distinguish between a cold sore and just cracked lips from being exposed to elements.) 1.As i've had a regular blood test done with nothing abnormal showing, been prescribed antibiotics which haven't really done anything for me and had limited success with an anti-fungal cream, am I justified in still suspecting herpes is at play? 2.
