Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips in children


Avatar n tn I also now have issues with candida or yeast and when it hit my eyelids, I looked like a Racoon, I used to think it was an allergy to polyester, but the more and more I learn I am finding that the POLIO Vaccine and others in the Military were failing tests and they tried to get rid of it by selling it to third world countries, when they were refused they had so much invested in the study that they had to send the vaccine through, now its causing all sorts of skin issues with soldiers and their
Avatar n tn My history is just one partner in 9 years, hence the reason for my concern/ worry. I think that the blood in my mouth was mine as I had cracked and sore lips (I noticed when I got home later that as I sucked my lips, blood entered my mouth, so maybe this had happened when she kissed me?), but I cannot say for certain. Am I at risk here, or are the volumes of blood involved too small to pose a significant HIV risk?
Avatar m tn Some days it's more prominent than others and my lips tend to dry out now and then, but I'm trying to avoid putting any sort of ointment/chapstick on them in the event that something coming in contact with the lips is irritating them further. I've included a recent photo (not the best quality) that shows my bottom lip and my lip line is no longer definitive.
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 At the same time he kept having huge swellings in different places. The most conspicuous were his lips. It did not occur in the same place every time. I witnessed these a couple of times and they were truly alarming swellings. He was sent to all types of specialists all of whom confirmed his diagnosis of acute giant urticaria with angioedema.
Avatar n tn I started with Strawberry tongue after dental work .
Avatar n tn I had the same thing - skin peeling off my gums and inner lips in sheets - the day after the first time using Cresh Pro Health! I emailed Crest right away and this was their response: Hi Jessica, Thanks for contacting Crest. I'm sorry about your experience with Crest toothpaste. The film you noticed in your mouth is safe and is a result of the natural process to remove dead cells from the skin surfaces in your mouth.
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.
1678656 tn?1369237418 They say headache isn't a side effect but upon research I found that it is. I would never let my children have any thought that what's in those bottles is candy. I would never even utter the word "candy" when talking about this medicine to them. They are well aware that it is not even to be touched. (Which they shouldn't be able to get to it anyhow). The side effects for that pain med is outrageous and not worth even taking especially since it does nothing for me.
Avatar n tn Also, many prescription drugs cause dry mouth which can cause cracks in the teeth and even gums. My lips have been bleeding lately. So, I'm also wondering if the blood taste is from my cracked lips. I realize this wouldn't apply to those of you who spit out large amounts of blood. Also, I have TMJ and grind at night. Along with that, I chew on the sides of my gums - (it may be a nervous habit). All of these things can cause small amounts of blood in the mouth.
Avatar n tn Cracked lips, Muscle pain, brittle fingernails, etc)(read links below). So I've concluded that she is Iron-Deficient. Now, I’ll have to somehow convince or force her to eat good food (rich in iron foods) along with her iron-drops. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that I've nailed the problem. This is only day 2 for my daughter. I hope this is the culprit of the pain and an end for many little sufferers.
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.
149675 tn?1416676733 He had fallen off a ladder and cracked his skull. He got this from a transfusion at the hospital when they put the plate in his head. I mean how freaking tragic but yet I still thought about hepatitis C when I saw him or talked to him. I did not even really know what it was!!! I was ignorant about it as most people are. Annyway I would like to hear what other think and how they handled it.
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 As far as the memory issues, well. . .I am a mother of 6 and grandmother of 5 so far, and I AM in my mid-40's. I believe that children steal brain cells anyway! For Wuu108, I am all for any further enlightenment or spiritual awareness or whatever you want to call it. Over that past 2 years, I would say that I have much more heightened spiritual awareness, but I'm not sure it has anything to do with the dent in my skull. But I think I will contemplate what you posted.
Avatar m tn I smoked a shisha yesterday & i think that the waiter didn't changed the nozzle of it , so i think i used someone's nozzle , that's why before smoke it i soaked it in a hot cup of tea for 15 seconds & today when i sprayed an eau de toilette on my face i felt a burning sensation on my lips & when i focused in the miror i found that i have cracked lips . Can hepatitis C or Hiv transmettre by this way . i was on the beach in Egypt & it was 28 Degree Celsius .
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
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 n tn We also may choose, in our sleep ofcourse, to visit past loved ones or even drop in on others! They can not see us though as we are there in spirit. The alarming paralyzing fear happens when we our physical body starts to awaken before our spirit is back in form inside. We are awake but cant move, we hear or feel buzzing, we feel as if we are being held down by an evil force who wants to eat our unborn children.....No. Does this not all pass?
Avatar n tn Stay away from open sores, cracked lips, bleeding in or around the mouth area. Other than that, kiss away to your heart's content!
Avatar n tn In mild cases in teenagers and young children (only having chapped lips), encouraging them not to lick their lips and applying protective paraffin-based ointment (such as Vaseline) or lip balms to the lips is normally very effective. For more severe angular cheilitis, depending on the cause, antifungal and antibiotic medication (e.g. topical miconazole oral gel that has dual activity), vitamins supplements, and dentures for a person without teeth can abate the symptoms.
Avatar n tn She has scratched me and also once her mouth was cut where I believe she touched my mouth which might have been cracked so bleeding. I've heard that even if the mother does have HIV, there's only a 30% chance of it getting passed on and if there was blood contact between me and my niece, it was very little at best.
Avatar n tn Hi, I took acutane about 6 years ago. I did get very dry cracked lips so drink lots of water. The only other side effect was I had Knee pain in the was crazy bad but I got through it....acutane for me was life changing. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I recently had dry, cracked chapped lips and continuously put on lip balm to try and heal it. Instead I developed what looked like a rash on the center of my top and bottom lip. No pain. Minor itching. Red with eventually a yellow scab. I went to a dermatologist who took a culture (haven't received the results yet) and also ordered blood work to see if it was a cold sore. These were my results: HSV I/II IgG Rflx I-II Type Sp HSV, IgM I/II Combination <0.91 HSV I/II IgG 9.
Avatar n tn Kawasaki disease often begins with a high and persistent fever greater than 102°F, often as high as 104°F. A persistent fever lasting at least 5 days is considered a classic sign. The fever may last for up to 2 weeks and does not usually go away with normal doses of acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen.
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 He currently had a scabbed over cold sore, and my lips were chapped and cracked. I immediately freaked out and attempted to disinfect my mouth area with rubbing alcohol, but I know that my odds aren't good here. How concerned should I be? I assume I am basically screwed, but is there anything I can do at this point for prevention? If I don't end up getting any blisters, when could I consider myself in the clear?
Avatar f tn so do u guys think that just kissing him alone will be risky,like if i had dry n cracked lips.
Avatar f tn Cracked corners of the mouth are very common in the winter months. I get them as well. Living in Chicago my lips are always dry, chapped and cracking in the winter. Like is said, don't worry so much. Live your life and enjoy it and the people you meet.
