Cracked lips in the corner of the mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips in the corner of the mouth


Avatar n tn I've been on TX for 34 weeks and one of the most irritating of the many SX are the cracked corners of the lips. Sometimes it's painful and even brushing my teeth makes it flare up. it hurts when i smile, when i talk, when i eat . . . I use chapstick several times an hour and drink as much water as i can but I still have the same problem. A lot of people seem to have the same thing but most say it goes away after TX.
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 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. I thought maybe it was a yeast infection,but i used nystation oral suspension and took 2 diflucan, one week apart without relief. PLEASE HELP.
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 Cracked corners of the lips has plagued me for the past year. The only thing I found that keeps it under control is a prescription ointment called ertaczo. The cracks used to extend from the mouth about an inch diagonally to my chin. They hurt like heck when I smile, eat, even speak unless I'm using the ertaczo. I haven't had inner mouth problems (yet) but Ia lot of people here seem to swear by "Magic Mouth Wash.
Avatar m tn I had some dry skin near the right corner of my mouth which went red and cracked and is a bit sore and then got the same on the other corner of my mouth a couple of days later. I don't think it is a cold sore - it looks like i've been eating an ice pop and cut the corners of my mouth on the plastic wrapper!! Moisturiser and lip balm doesn't really do that much!! Any ideas??
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.
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.
168732 tn?1311715679 I had/have what feels like really chapped lips but just in the corners. My mouth droops (like a frown) now, with the side effects of the meds, and I catch myself every now and then almost drooling from the corners. That's probably where my chapness comes from. I just carry around lip balm all the time now.
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 Hey i had the same problem the only balm that worked was maybelline baby soft lips stick,it has a neutral scent and is unisex,do you have a blocked nose?
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 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 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 For the last 4+ weeks I've had a crack/cut in the corner of my lips/mouth. The worst spot since its constantly stretching. The cut goes from the corner of the lip into the skin. It keeps trying to heal, but because I cant keep my mouth closed (lol), it keeps reopening. I thought I cut myself shaving but realize now it must be related to tx. Also, I'm noticing other marks, blotchy almost cold sore looking on my lower lips...
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 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 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 m tn What was the result of your "patch test" ? In 4/2014 I had red swollen lips & a bit of red around the mouth. Tried all the ointments, creams, antibiotics, prednisone, cortisone, viral, etc. Nothing helped; it just finally faded away. 1/2015, the same red lips reoccurred with a larger red surrounding the mouth, which began extending up to the nose & down to the chin. Then, a 1-1/2" red stripe appeared on the front of my neck and blotchy chest.
Avatar n tn Maybe it's food from the corner of your mouth or a build up of old chapstick.
Avatar n tn I don't know if the bacteria in the mouth is linked to the cause of this? But once I cleared out all of the cavities in my teeth, my lips have gotten way better. Also I have five siblings, and we are very close, and eat from the same spoon, or drink from the same cup, but only 2 out 5 of us have this problem. My other 3 siblings do not get cracked weeping lips. Also since my lips have cleared up my dating life has drastically improved, and am able to kiss or make out with my bf.
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 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!
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 There is some blood flow in the sinuses, but for many people it’s not sufficient to deliver enough of the drug to kill the large number of bacteria in the infected sinuses. You may also have learned that saline irrigation works a little bit to relieve your sinusitis, but not enough. The reason is even simpler: gravity. Gravity will pull the salt water out of your nose before it can wash out the infected mucus in the upper part of your sinuses.
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.
228686 tn?1211558307 When she awoke, he laved up water and dribbled it into her mouth. They rested for two days in the shade of the overhanging wall. On the morning of the second day, he heard the sound of horses approaching in the distant. He shook the child roughly, then snarling, lifted her onto his shoulders, abandoning their belongings. He hurried out into the growing heat. Around the corner a group of black robed riders came into view. They saw him and stopped. He watched them warily as he walked south.
