Avatar f tn There are several reasons that cheilitis may develop in an individual. One of the most common has to do with poor nutrition. A lack of a proper amount of iron in the bloodstream, or a deficiency of Vitamin B12 can set the stage for the development of cheilitis. When there is evidence that the root cause of the chapped lips comes from improper diet habits, adding vitamin supplements may help.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning and she said swelling like this (tongue, lips) is called angiodema. She said if I continue to expose myself to this allergen (whatever it may be) the next stage could be anaphylaxis. I'm really scared. I have 2 little kids and I'm terrified of something happening. I can't avoid the allergen if I don't know what it is.:( Please help.

Sometimes if the bottom or top lips seems to be curled in, even just a tiny bit, it can make things worse. Other than that, I wish you the best and hope the pain eases up sooner for you than it did for me.
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.
Avatar f tn I found that i have rings under my eyes, and i have trouble focusing, as well as dry, cracked lips. I have started to take iron tablets to help, but it is seeming like there is no cure. Ive been to doctors and had tests done and there doesnt seem to be a physical problem. Is there any way to help this issue? I know there are no easy cures, but besides going to a psychologist, I dont know what to do.
Avatar n tn My lips itch and burn and are also sometimes swollen. They also peel, look dry and cracked, and since this started, make me look much older I have gotten a salve from my dermotologist, which helps somewhat. (She said I am allergic to most toothpaste and I now use Toms which is a natural toothpaste - it has helped to some degree) I am constantly applying lip balm or chap stick, but nothing seems to help the problem entirely. My eyelids itch, are red and also get dry and flakey.
Avatar m tn Going forward a month, I started to develop even more odd symptoms like burning pain other vague sensations all over, sore throat/barbed wire feeling in throat, red eyes, hair loss/brittle hair, fungus infection toe nails, yellow crusted and peeling lips, stiff limbs, rigid muscles, cracked and white tongue, dry and flaky skin, brittle nails, cracking joints with every move and insomnia.
Avatar n tn I am breastfeeding and my baby likes to touch my lips while nursing. Sometimes baby has a rough or jagged fingernail; I think baby may have irritated my skin and maybe introduced an infection. My sleeping is irregular but I usually get at least 6 hours per night. It's difficult not to touch the sore area, for instance with my tongue if I lick my lips, as it's directly on my lip, near the inner edge close to my teeth.
Avatar f tn Check out the skin on your fingertips and lips -- is it smooth or wrinkly? Prune-like means you're dehydrated... Even before starting tx, I would tend to be dehydrated a lot... Don't care much for plain water, so a trick I like is to mix 1/3 Poweraid with 2/3 water in a glass... Makes the water go down much easier... I think there are some energy benefits to adding the Poweraid too... Don't quit your coffee habit -- it is giving you pleasure! Maybe cut down a little and add more water...
Avatar n tn I have a white coated tongue and it burns and feels almost like sandpaper. My lips too are dry and cracked constantly. My mouth is very dry. I have good and bad news. The good is that it could be only a yeast infection in your mouth called thrush. The bad news is that ive been treated for thrush 3 or 4 times in my 4 year quest to get rid of this. Your symptoms sound like thrush as does mine. My symptoms have alleviated in the past year or two but it is still slightly there.
Avatar f tn The hot flashes gave me the tip off mostly and the numbness in my lips and hands that I never experienced. I only had my thumb feel weird before tx when exposed to cold. But I got sick of telling medical people - who really listens anyhow?. I am a person that knows their body inside and out. I know when something is not right. Too many medical people and even sometimes loved ones feel its the stress of the disease and worry and damsel in distress and all that.
Avatar n tn Then the area would get really dry and cracked and stay like that for about 2 weeks. Then it would seem to clear up but start all over agin with the little fluid filled bumps. I haven't seen a doctor about this yet. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
Avatar n tn It starts about 30 minutes to an hour after eating and usually lasts for 3 painful hours where I feel like I want to vomit or go to the bathroom but I can't do either and my back feels hollow like it wants to be cracked but that would make me throw up! The only thing that helps me is heating pads on my stomach and or back, hot baths, and lying on my side.
Avatar f tn I wouldn't worry about adding the pumpkin as this lady does because you are doing this for only short term nutrition and not long term like the cat in the video needs....just keep the food simple..like a baby food meat..or some canned cat food that you add some water too...good luck. let us know how she makes out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Avatar n tn Try to stay positive and remember not to go to the worst case scenario, as it is easy to do on the internet, as everything is a symptom of everything it feels like at times. Our modern life styles are very taxing, so I think rest, positivity and nutrition will be our best tools to heal ourselves. Remember, this is what the body does best, it just needs the right tools, and often it takes time. My biggest test to learn patience and positivity... hopefully we all can.
Avatar n tn so I'm going back to the nutrition center were I found out about Urea and see what else they have available with all these ingredients. Could you name the Urea based cream you are using? I've found that an aloe vera extract with colloidal silver helps in healing the deep lesions and cuts and if bad enough anti-biotic oinment and bandaid to help with the really deep, bleeding, painful cuts.
Avatar n tn (Ulcerative Colitis, Chrons Disease, Atopic dermatitis, Psoriasis, etc) What about Herpes? (have ever had it on your lips) Did you have flu like symptoms, with the occurrence of your problem? Do you have a pet? And so on… The Idea is to know if it is infectious, autoimmune even malignancy If it is infectious there is always a treatment, if it is autoimmune probably there isn’t but at least you’ll know what it is, and maybe you can get something for the symptoms.
Avatar f tn chest pain numbness, tingling, pain in arms and legs stomach pain after eating either no appetite or ravenous weight loss diarrhea or constipation start periods 3-5 days earlier than normal and are heavy with cramps headache chills feel like I can't regulate body temp (either too hot or too cold) nausea at times fatigue depressed exhausted crying and irritable anxiety dry lips and skin brittle hair eyes hurt forgetfulness exhausted by any activity I think that my body is dumping the thyroid h
Avatar n tn For some reason I keep getting them frequently in the last few months. They are always on my labia ... either on the lips themselves or at the base where the labia meet right below my urethra. I suppose I could have them and not realize it depending on the location. Mostly I notice them when going to the bathroom (stings when peeing) or by moving a certain way in a chair and I can feel it. I have been through so many tests over the last few months its not funny.
Avatar n tn I suspect 5-7 more days (since my skin has broke and the circle that reveals the cracked skin is white...maybe because I have been using salt treatment) BY THE WAY I DO NOT recommend that if you are pain intolerant!!! I hurts like the ;'.[],;l';',.!@#$#$@$ Catch my drift? Still, I heard that salt heals everything!!! In the past, it healed quicker, but now it is taking longer. I guess the the I have gotten immune, but seriously, in the past it worked and would be gone in 2-3 days.
Avatar n tn I am like you. I am also 29 and I noticed a bald spot on my scalp in the front in February. I went to a determologist and have been having injections in my scalp to help the hair grow back. The hair has not grown back fully (but has grown some), and now when I run my finger over it, it feels indented in the exact spot the hair is gone. I only have a indented line on my forehead going down to my eyebrows. This has been getting bigger over the last week.
Avatar n tn The skin just inside the labia was irritated and cracked (almost like really chapped lips) and inside the cracks were bright red. It was so itchy and painful. I used these vaginal capsules (can't remember the name) and it eventually cleared right up. But it is of great importance that you see a doctor. If you buy and use over-the-counter yeast infection medicine and it's not a yeast infection, you could makes things a lot worse.
Avatar n tn Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area. This tearing is not related to intercourse since my husband and I are unable to do that due to the pain it causes me. There is no real pain otherwise. I am getting some minor bleeding when I poop due to the tears in the anal area.
Avatar n tn intense itchiness; sore, cracked, bloody, tender, red skin; massive dead skin flakes; hearing loss due to swollen, infected ears being plugged up with gook; and apparently (my five-year-old told me today) an unpleasant stench. My history is recurrent swimmer’s ear when young. The doctor would prescribe drops and/or irrigate the ear with warm water. Not sure if it’s related, but in college, I had a massive episode of vertigo and they could find no cause (even after a CT-SCAN).
Avatar n tn Hospice suggested withholding anything given orally, meds, food, and water because it might trigger another episode of vomiting (red blood is worse). Thinking I had to give her something as her lips cracked from dryness I gave her an ice chip and started the vomiting one more time. She finally fell into a restless sleep her hands fidgeting constantly even in sleep. After praying and knowing she was in pain I gave her .5 ml of Oxycodone and a sip of water that she was able to hold down.
