Cracked lips on babies

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips on babies


Avatar n tn I have had dry, swollen, cracked, peeling skin on my eyelids which has become progressively worse over 7 years. Have been prescribed cortisone but only is an overnight cure. Is this exceme? or psoriasis? or allergies? How can I get over this??? HELP!!!
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 A while back I developed a rash on my lips after using chapstick. About a month ago I developed a very similar rash on my lips after using walmart brand petroleum jelly. I didn't realize that the petroleum jelly contained other additaves, such as fragrance and aloe and vitamin E. My rash consisted of tiny red pimple-like bumps on my lips that never itched or oozed any form of liquid. I noticed that the chapstick also contained a "fragrance," so I am thinking this could be my culprit.
Avatar f tn He has good days where not sure he is taking anything as he will never admit to it. Then days on end where he is high and abusive to me. Then the days on end when he sleeps for 4 or 5 days straight, detoxing I guess. I have talked to drug counsellors to understand these drugs better. I have done everything I can to help him but he wont even admit to his habit let alone help himself. I find pills everywhere and worry about my granddaughter finding them.
2085031 tn?1347158034 Thrush is a yeast infection that babies can get in their mouths and if you are breast feeding can be passed on to your nipples. What thrush looks like in a babies mouth is white stuff stuck on the cheeks, lips, tounge. If it is thrush you both will need to be treated with an anti fungal.
Avatar f tn I am trying to figure out if baby and I have thrush!? Baby had white on his lips and tongue tho it looks better today. My nipples were killing me(not cracked) and I had a white spot on them (that went away) I get dull pains in my breast well after a feeding also..... ugh not sure what to do!
Avatar m tn The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane. It's terrible at night not being able to sleep because of that feeling, and not being able to sleep with my girlfriend because I keep her awake with my constant moving around and itching...
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 and for me at least, I can use Vaseline anywhere else, except on my lips. On wiki there is a list of other things you can use, like coconut oil/butter to soothe chapped lips, or even honey. I would also try and cut back on the usage of chapstick just because, just from my own personal experience, when I use my chapstick too often i end up with more of a chapped lip if i forget my chapstick at home or i just don't have it with me.
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?
208164 tn?1189759432 I have some tiny white bumps on the corners of my lips and on my upper lips but from doing research I read that they maynot be anything serious. I had a minor irritation on the left side of my lower lip but one could only see it if I had them look very closely, I have to point to it.
Avatar f tn I literally develop callouses around my nipple and all my babies developed nursing blisters on their lips. Maybe had I used that darn stuff more I wouldn't have had to deal with those. I am always around if you need support.

Avatar f tn Is it Okay to try it out first just to see if my baby latches on because I heard most babies dont latch on to your breast?? I also heard it hurts when breastfeeding which makes me scared to try it lol but everyone says its healthy for the baby and also helps with weight loss. For all the mom's who has breastfed or plans to breastfeed any suggestions for me being a new mother I really appreciate it...
Avatar m tn Finally, is it possible to that the tingly, stingy feeling in the corners of my lip is simply cracked lips as a result of constantly licking the corners of my lips - can saliva do that?? Nurse Warren, I am sorry for sounding so irrational. I am an educated, hardworking guy who loves his family but now feels seriously estranged from them all - I HATE MYSELF!!
Avatar f tn It took him an hour to actually get one nursing session in because he would latch, get off, then I would struggle to get him back on and then he wouldn't be on long again, oh it was frustrating to say the least. BFing is not easy, but definitely very beneficial. With Jesse, it seemed like he knew more than me! lol. He has no problems, thankfully. The first week is the hardest to get through. Make sure her lips look like duck lips around your nipple when she is sucking.
760862 tn?1243100904 We both have questions about it, so here goes - She had been having problems with swollen hands to the point where her finger tips cracked open. We always thought that it was dry skin, maybe allergy to cleaning supply or something like that, that caused the swelling / cracked fingers. And than her legs started swelling, they did not crack like finger tips but started swelling an were just hard and really hurt her.
Avatar n tn Yes I have been getting those little cracks on my lips. I usually end up putting neosporin on them - seems to work better than chapstick, but I use a lot of that too. I wonder if that is a dehydration problem. Inside the mouth I have read that the rx cause the saliva to dry up. Not only does that create a problem with dry mouth, but saliva is antibacterial so the lack of saliva can cause mouth problems including cavities and infections that cause gums to recede and lead to bone loss.
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 My nipples hurt so bad I do not want to nurse right now but I know that is the only way I can get my supply which I do not think has come in yet. I do not know if he latches on correctly either. He will cry or yawn and I stick the nipple in and he just moves his head around until he finds a comfortable spot he likes and then sucks for a couple seconds and then just holds it in his mouth and then after a while sucks again and it is painful still.
1985863 tn?1327764816 OUCHHHHHHHH so my Dr said I could save a stab by mixing the sol x and the lupron in 1 needle, unfortunatly by the time i primed the bottles and drew the amounts the needle was DULL I couldnt get it in 4x stabd I finally gave up and primed again with 1 needle and drew with a new one for both and then I finally was able to get a stab on the 5th try with a new needle. Then on to the follistim pen at 200units. This thing *****....... it went in fine but to get it to dispense was another story.
Avatar n tn The only side effect that was a problem was the constant dry lips , as I remember. The effect on my skin was unbeliveable!!! And it has remained perfect until 2 years ago, when I began to break out in tiny little bumps on my forehead and around my mouth.( mind you I am now 45,too old for this!!!) Back I went to Dr.6, and he put me on tetracycline for months, which kept it at bay, but not gone.
177465 tn?1288242063 my lactation consultant said they were chapped, and just like licking your lips when they're chapped, putting milk on them and air drying them can make our nipples more chapped. since he's latching well, perhaps this is the problem? when they were really bad she recommended i give them a little saline soak a few times a day. it helped. you have to be careful cause if they don't heal you can get an infection. i think the saline helps prevent infection.
Avatar f tn The night before I knew, I noticed he was sharing food from my bowl (an oversight on both our parts- didn't think much of it, bc he wasn't sick, but I do NOT usually allow that when I am pregnant), and herpes can be spread through saliva. In addition, he used my laptop, and I used it immediately after him (I am a nail biter- I do it without even noticing.
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.
193609 tn?1292183893 I helped her pull him out in that stroller, his knitted hat had icicles on it - and she ran off with him, icy hat on head and all. Common sense doesn`t always come naturally.
Avatar m tn 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. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
330481 tn?1309491843 you might have to call 911, I've laughed so hard, I done cracked my 4-head on the top of this laptop...almost had a brain concussion over here.
