Cracked lips in babies

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips in babies


Avatar f tn that was my first time boobiefeeding so I thought ogre had to only be on the nipple, but I later found out with my 4th son, that the nipple is supposed to be all the way in your baby's mouth...your babies lips are supposed to be on the areola (so). I couldn't even pump because that hunted too so I gave up. Since ur baby is on the bottle for now, make sure you give your baby the bottle s that resemble your nipples. I forgot the name but it's shape isn't like the normal bottle nipple.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem! Dry, cracked skin that I have to peel off of my upper eyelids. It comes in waves. It might be bad for a week and go away for a month, or vice versa. It seems to be worse when the weather is hot or dry, but sometimes that makes no difference. And sometimes it cracks so badly it bleeds, like chapped lips. I went to my doctor and he said that I had a "skin condition." I'd never wanted to beat someone so badly.
Avatar n tn I have only been using the mycolog and my lips are not red or rashy at all. However, They split/cracked pretty badly in 2 areas from either the allergic reaction or not moisturizing them enough since I didn't put anything on them, and those cracks/splits have been there for about 2 months, healing off and on and then splitting again. I really need to use something that is safe on my lips, especially because I cannot use the mycolog forever! (i'm sure that's unsafe).
Avatar n tn I don't really want to go to the doctor because I just don't have the money right now, and I feel like it would be a waste if it's something that I can take care of on my own. Anyone else ever experienced this before? What can I do to ease the pain? All I've done today is lay in bed because it hurts too much to do anything else.
Avatar n tn I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so. These pains are in 1 area in the back of my head in about a 1 square inch area.. Any ideas???
Avatar n tn i iced it and massaged it, which caused it to be enlarged to the point of it hanging (grossily might i add) approximately one inch past my outter lips. in addition to to the pain arising from initial injury, i also experience the discomfort/embarassment that stemmed from this in my everyday life, from wearing fitting clothes right down to the emotional trauma resulting from this condition.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
2085031 tn?1347158034 Hey mommies! My son is four months old and we've been successfully and exclusively breastfeeding the entire time. I've noticed the past week or so that one of my areolas is discolored, dry & itchy. Its paler or lighter in color. My nipple is not cracked but this itching is becoming unbearable. Its not interfering with breastfeeding, but its bugging me to death. Does anyone know what could have caused this and what I can do to solve this problem? Thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn Never had it but when you breastfeed the babies tongues will be white both my babies were. Your boobs hurting after you feed is likely from more milk coming in during the feeding. Mine do this quite a bit especially if I pump then feed. If you're worried call the doc!
Avatar n tn Then, I take a clean q-tip and put a tiny amount of diaper cream on it. I swab that in my ear on the cracked, sore tender areas (trying to avoid getting it into my ear – I still want to hear) and it seems to stop the itching for a few hours. I keep my ears from water too. When I shower, I put a small piece of a cotton ball in my ear and put Vaseline OVER it so water doesn’t leak in.
Avatar f tn We love primitive camping, the beaches, and any outdoor activities that we could include our babies in. We are having the hardest time letting go, but I pray that we will know when to stop. She is drinking water, eating some of the chicken; so as long as she is willing, wagging her tail, able to go outside and enjoy, we will continue the fight. My family and friends are supportive, but now they want us to let go. How can I make that decision as long as she is fighting?
330481 tn?1309491843 Symptoms for all who wanna know - boobies are killing me (not normal), cramps down low in the middle of my uterus, haven't had an appetite in over 24 hours, and haven't slept well in the last 3-4 nights. Please keep your fingers crossed for me and pray for my baby. We have been through the ringer and want this more than anything. Hugs and SSBD to all! Jen (AKA a nervous wreck!!
Avatar f tn Instead, the corners of my mouth cracked, then I got small bumps all over my lips which caused my lips to swell immensely and become very lumpy, red, and sore to the touch... and they were extremely chapped/cracked. Now, it's funny you say you don't think my incident is herpes related. What do you think it could be? I understand you may not have an answer for me on this, but do you recommend I post about this on a skin forum? Should I see a dermatologist?
Avatar n tn When nothing seemed to be working, I stopped using it altogether. In time, my lips healed, and I switched to Softlips lipbalm in both vanilla and peppermint flavors. I showed no reaction from their usage for about a month. Then, I started getting the same reaction that I got from the Burt's Bees Lip Balm. That was when I figured I was developing an allergy to lip balm. Over time, I also realized I was getting the same reaction even faster from lipstick and lipgloss.
Avatar m tn my lips are cracked as well, which i am very scared about. Once I realized the trouble I had gotten myself in to, I quickly requested the girl to take an HIV test (CIMA/ VDRL - TPPA) which she took and they both came out negative. But I am still concerned that she could have been in the window period. To further make myself comfortable, I went in for a PCR test at 28 days along with a HIV DUO Combi (i think P 24 Ag is also involved here) and they both thanks to God came back negative.
208164 tn?1189759432 It's dissapearing and I figure it was just cracked lips since my lips have been pretty chapped lately and from looking at cold sore pics, and talking to a nurse when I thought my daughter had a cold sore, it would have to be crusty with some pus and my lesion was far from that description. As for the tiny bumps on my lips, I read a post in the dermatology forum that it wasn't serious, according to the doctor there. I posted a question to Dr.
175662 tn?1282217256 Anyhow after looking up some breasfeeding information, I found that babies aren't supposed to curl their lips under while nursing... and I noticed that she does that often. Could this is the source of our problems? Anyone else experience this?
Avatar m tn One more thing Terry, The rash in the corners of my lips appears a little greyish in colour and it tingles - I am SCARED out of my mind and HATE MYSELF!! God, why did I do this to myself and my family!! I am going insane!! Please help!!
Avatar f tn My nurse left a not for my dr to write a script for a electric pump, the lactation consulatant said i should get something in the mail in a few days if im approved. Im just wondering if she is use to the colustrum and dont like the milk. bcuz i was told its easy for them to learn how to suck a bottle but hard to BF.

Avatar f tn Check ur hospital to see if there is a lactation consultant and a le leche league in ur area they can help alot with questions and support and ur hospital may have a place u can bring baby in to weigh when u want w/o appointment to make sure they're gaining well. LATCH IS KEY babys lips should be flared and as much of ur nipple and areola in mouth as possible if it doesn't feel right pop baby off by putting ur finger in their mouth and breaking suction pulling ur nipple out.
760862 tn?1243100904 I had an unusual symptom, i broke out in hive and went into anaphaltic (sp?) shock. My face swelled as did my tongue and lips then my throat closed up on me. They told me it was a good thing i got to the ER when i did. I almost died. But l stress that this is a rare thing it most likely won't happen to your friend. I do find that weather affects my flare ups also stress and if i over do anything like let say house cleaning.
1985863 tn?1327764816 Everything looked Good uterus is measuring at 3.3 cm thin dr said that was normal and good No cysts and saw 6 follis in right ovary and 5 in the left. alos said that was normal. Blood work also done, was called later by Dr told toreducce lupron to 5 units fri night and add 200 dial up of Folistim and 10 units of solution x ( of which dr said he cant tell me what it is or he would have to kill me) lol ( I told him you already tried in June...
Avatar n tn During the lap dance she would squeeze her breast down toward me so thats making me concerned she was squeezing something on to my face (eye, lips, mouth). With my lips being dry and cracked, throat being dry, and having bloody nose everynight i assume the risk is there. She told me she was clean but she owned an escort service. And according to her, most of her workers did not use protection when on the job. Made me more worried since she would allow that as their boss.
Avatar n tn Turned out to be thrush, when your mouth gets so dry it can cause yeast infections, the same thing babies get, told dr. she gave me some Nystatin, gone in 2 days. Feels so much better. No pain, Biotene mouthwash and toothpaste also help.
Avatar n tn not to scare you or discourage you but my doctor was afraid i was passing the billirubin through my breast milk never heard of that before and did not do much looking in to but anyway he said they put the babies under the lights at anything above 14. Good luck and congratulations.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar n tn he had a cut on his lip and swore all it was was chapped lips that cracked in the cold weather. believable. and weve been dating for 8 months so i had never experienced any discomfort in the past with him so i didnt think anything of it...sure enough it was type 1. i would just like to say that herpes is a very common virus and its more of a mental disorder than anything else. people 'scheve' this virus b/c it pertains to kissing & sexually relations.
Avatar n tn I can't say that it was not hard, the treatment was brutal. My lips cracked and bled everyday. I had scbs in my nose that lasted until the end of May and my skin was so dry that it would bleed. I also felt depressed. Now, after all of that i still feel that I would do it again. I have to say that now my pores are getting somewhat more oily again but it seems more excessive to me than to anyone else. You have never suffered from dry skin like this before!
