Avatar m tn I have had a crack in the right corner of my lips since October and I have no idea why. All I know it very painful, especially if I open my mouth wider to bite into something and when I am eating, which just seems to open the crack even more. I have been to see my go who thought that I might have an iron deficiency. However, my blood results came back normal. About a month ago, he prescribed me hydrocortisone cream to apply to it once daily.
Avatar n tn For 2 months I have suffered with dry cracked lips, redness in corners of mouth. Moisture tends to collect in corners of mouth. I feel like if I smile my mouth is stretching. I am constantally wiping the moisture out of the corners of my mouth. My lips have a burning sensation inside and out. Mouthwash sets me on fire, but just the anterior portion of my mouth. I have tried many kinds of chapstick. The redness in the corners of my mouth is spreading. It is very embarassing.
Avatar n tn I dont have cracked lips, no dentures, drink a fair amount of water, and no cracks in the corner of my mouth. Perhaps it is from breathing through my mouth too much? Thanks. Rob.
Avatar n tn What is a 58 year old, professional/married woman, (otherwise healthy) doing up at 4:00 am searching the internet for a solution to a medical problem that she has been to a doctor three time over the past month? Desperate...I woke up with my lips burning. On April 24th, I volunteered at a local art event which was held in a factory. My station was close to furnaces and it was hot and the next day my lips were chapped.

163305 tn?1333672171 I've been getting sores right in the corner of my mouth, where my lips meet. Though the cream I use for canker sores was getting rid of them, this week, it's not working. The sore is related to tx, not a big deal, but annoying. Any suggestions ?
Avatar n tn and while his sore was active we went swwimming at a lake with family and about 2 days later i now have a sore on the corner of my mouth aswell as a couple small bumps on the tip and side of mt tongue at first i had one on the side of my tongue then the corner of my mouth and the the tip of my tongue. the sore on the side on my tongue feel is is insignificant due to the fact it may have just bee a swollen taste bud it was small clear and stuck out about a half millimeter.
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. 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 If you have cracks at the corner of your mouth it indicates B2 deficiency in this case you need to take B2 supplements. If the symptoms still persist, consult your skin specialist or dermatologist. Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts. Regards.
Avatar n tn Moved to new place Sept. 4th, started getting a sore in corner of left side of lip, then burning mouth, white patchy tongue and palate, it cleared up a little once; but is back and now the right corner of my lip is sore and peeling.....I did figure out that our chlorine level was high here 1.87 ppm one day, and then 1.80 ppm the following day. Burning eyes, red eyes, my throat closes off sometimes also. I have been to urgent care twice, the ER once, Family Physician once.
Avatar n tn Although they have the apperance of being very sore. When I had eczema of the lips before, it effected the whole layer of both lips and was incredibly itchy. So does anyone have any ideas as to what this condition could be? Has anyone had patch testing for their condition and did it give any helpful results? Any help is much appreciated as you can probably imagine. Robhh - As for the stess part, I am convinced that it plays a key role in triggering the condition.
Avatar m tn Environmental conditions like wind, dry air and too much sun exposure can cause chapped lips, which leave redness in the corners of your mouth. A deficiency in iron or riboflavin can cause lips to chap and corner of mouth to redden. Angular cheilitis is an inflammatory condition that affects the corners of your mouth, leaving them red, cracked, blistered, bleeding or painful. Keep your lips and corners of mouth covered in lip balm containing petrolatum.
Avatar f tn My lips started to tingle, burn, and then presented little white bumps in the corner of my mouth and also little bumps on my top lip that can only be seen when the lip is stretched. It's been like that for 3 months now and I think I'm going to go get it looked at. They don't always burn or tingle and when they do it is only for a few minutes. My only concern is that it doesn't go away on it's own....... Sound like Chelitis?
Avatar m tn He told me that it was Angular Stomatitus and that I should always keep something on my lips and the corner’s of my mouth. He also told me that there was yeast in my mouth and he gave me a prescription for some kind of yeast infection medicine. 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.
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.
Avatar f tn So he is treating my angular cheilitis, cracked lips at the corner of mouth, for this. However all it is are cracked lips. No sores or scabs. I understand that the herpes simplex virus presents in this way. Could this be a different condition? What else could be causing this?
Avatar n tn Last week I had cracks in the corner of my lips from dry lips which are currently healed, and now there are several little bumps across the surface of my lips that are not visible unless you look real hard for them. When I rub my lips together they feel like sand paper. What is wrong with me?
Avatar m tn Swollen Lips Red Patches on Lips, Extending to Exterior Area Severely Itchy Cracks at Corners of Mouth Discoloration of Lips in which they become Lighter in Color around the Red Patches No Sores in Mouth No Sore Throat Consistently Dry Feeling - as though nothing (literally) can be absorbed by my lips Red Ring Surrounding Edges of Lips I don't know what to do. This happened very suddenly, without any changes in lifestyle.
Avatar n tn Maybe it's food from the corner of your mouth or a build up of old chapstick.
Avatar n tn I think it might have something to do with eczema (which my dad has), or an infection that gets into the cracked skin on the lips. I'm in the middle of it right now. Two days ago I had some really greasy pizza. It seemed to occur almost instantly after that. It calmed down a bit throughout the night until I had more of the pizza. It got a lot worse after that. I'm not positive it had anything to do with the grease, but it seemed to correspond.
Avatar m tn keep the saliva off the corner of your lips please, i believe thats the main cause, jst suck it in and if you cant then wipe it off with a tissue ps: be careful with what products go on your lips, and if you use face washes make sure they dont go on your lips, some times they can be harsh for your lips. plus drink lots of water and have lots of fruits and veges!
173975 tn?1216261375 and the corner of my mouth is cracked, dry sore...won't go away...put carmex on all the time but doesnt seem to be healing far as the breakouts...i feel like a leper...they are in places i have never broken out and they don't heal with zit cream, antibiotic ointment..etc...look like boils..some of them....and they hurt so bad....even have some on my scalp...have some hair loss now...if i run my hands through my hair i get a nice handful...
Avatar n tn Lip colored little bumps On the corners of my lips that have seemed to spread but come and go in various spots over the course of one or 2 days. The first thing I thought of was my lip problem ressembled the poison ivy rash I had just gotten over. I did some reasearching of poison ivy on lips, and came up with allergic reaction to mango, AND I had just eaten a few mangos 2 days earlier. Apparently poison ivys and mangos are in the same family producing the same allergen. Who wouldve thunk it.
Avatar n tn Fo about 2-3 months now ive noticed black spots on my lips,the are also cracks on the sides of my lips sometimes but of recent ive noticed that the spots are takn a straight line on my upper lips,while, the down lips jst have thes spots seperated.please what can i do to stop these.
Avatar n tn It started at the end of June. I don't smoke and I'm in my early 40s. I hadn't changed anything in my diet or cosmetics or anything in my daily routine when this began. The only the dermatologist will allow me to use on my mouth is vaseline petroleum jelly, which I apply every few minutes. If I try anything else, my skin stings like a nettle rash. My next follow-up with the dermatologist is next week.
Avatar m tn I play an instrument and sometimes the corner of my mouth gets kind of cracked and irritated because of the moisture. I obsessively put on chapstick to keep my lips moisturized. This little crack or whatever in the corner of my lips remained for three days, only slightly stinging when I opened my mouth too wide, but seemed a tad tingly....but I have a phobia of cold sores since I have somehow managed to escape getting them from my mum all these years.
Avatar n tn Roughly about 1 month ago I noticed the left corner of my mouth was dry,itchy and chapped. Thought nothing of it. It went away a few days later. And has re-occurred a few times since then. The area is small enought that if my mouth is closed you cannot notice it and has never festered or gotten larger. I have not had any 'bumps', blisters, bubbling or puss pockets like I've read is common for herpes. It is only ever cracked and dry.
