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 have been suffering for about 2 months with cracked lips at the corners of my mouth please can you help ive tried vasaline which helps it from hurting but its not clearing up
Avatar n tn At the same time on one of my feet, like three toes, the left corner of my foot itches extremely bad, and on my lips, they are dry on the left side, on the top left side of my lip it is all dried up and cracking... what could this be?
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 Right now it is awful (looks like a cigarette burn on my eyelid). I have this mostly on the middle of my right eye and the side corner of my left eye. I have read so much about this and am so frustrated. I picked at the dry skin a few days ago, and then it just hurt for days. Stinging, raw, itchy eyelids and irritating the inside of my eyes constantly. One comment from a reader above was to stop washing and going over eyes when washing your face. I think this has helped quite a bit.
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 Hey everybody, I got the same stuff on my lips as everyone of you mentioned above. Actually, it got even worse, it spread out on bottom of my nose, and lately I got blisters on top of my hand. I went to the doctor and she said: "POISON IVY". I told her that I wasn't doing anything outdoor before the bumps pop up. She said that could take 2-3 weeks to develop. I wasn't sure that she was right, but I remembered couple weeks ago I did remove some crawling plant off of my house.
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 I get this white gooey stuff on my lips...almost like it's chapped but I put on blistex every single day, and still when I get out of the water, or just throughout the day, I'll get it. do you know how to get rid of it?
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 I got antihistamine and they retreated a little but have not fully gone. The corner of my lips have cracked and broken open. The first moment I noticed them was on a very hot night. I was not exposed to sunlight, but I was to heat for about 2 days. I am writing this a week after the occurance. The itch has spread to my genitals. I have not been exposed to poison ivy or the like. I discontinued use of lip balm as of today. My lips are getting better as my genitals seem to itch more.
Avatar n tn Or a bad case of Chapped lips , a condition whereby the lips become dry and possibly cracked. It may be caused by the evaporation of moisture. Lip balm can often provide temporary relief, though it should not be used extensively. One should avoid licking their lips as saliva contains the enzyme amylase, which can damage the already compromised lip tissue. Honey can be used on the lips as a natural remedy.
Avatar n tn i hav black spots on the corner of my lips i dnt knw wht to do cn any1 here tell me any solution my age is 17 and sumtimes its itchy.....
Avatar n tn One of my dermatologists told me that I have eczema while the other said I have exfoliative cheilitis. It's on my whole lips. The epithlial layer of the skin keeps on growing and peeling for more than 2 years now. I noticed that my saliva is very sticky and that seems to make the healing more difficult. The mucous membrane also seems to be peeling and drying out slowly as it spreads into the mouth. I've been using many products, such as locoid, protopic, diprolene, aquafor etc.
Avatar f tn Recently I had cracked the corner of my lips very badly. It started to get red and crusty. My mom thought it was a cold sore, so we put that stuff on it for a day. I then read up on Angular Cheilitis, thought it was that, and started putting anti-fungal creme on it. Now, it is no better and red bumps are appearing around the corner of my mouth.. What are these, and what should I do?
Avatar f tn The blisters on my lips are almost invisible. They are very very tiny and grow in clusters all over my lips.
Avatar f tn the coners of my mouth are cracked and now all around the mouth/lips area is extremely red and is burning/itchy. I always use the same type of chapstick, and i havent used any new lipgloss or make up so im trying to figure out what it could be. today i woke up and now noticed there are very very tiny bump like things that when touched/popped have a clear fluid come out of them. I have tried vasoline and neosporine and nothing is helping!!!
Avatar n tn For over two months I had severe dry, cracked, burning, and itching sensations on and around my lips. Sometimes they hurt so much I couldn't touch them because they felt like a layer of skin burned off. My dermatologist said I had some form of dermatitis. She said something about an allergic reaction to the sun probably because I ingested or used something which then caused that reaction (but said I'm not actually allergic to the sun ).
Avatar m tn Wondering if anyone else is experiencing this and what you're doing for it? I'm going on week 40 of Peg/Copeg. 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.
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 I get cracked lips on the corners of my mouth about once a month. My doctor tested me for the herpes simplex virus and I tested positive. 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 My Dermatologist told me the same crap.......He said it's from licking ur lips too much. First off the creams don't work on the cuts on the corner of your mouth. They only work on your lips if there swollen or if u have tiny skin bumps around ur mouth. To get rid of the cuts I was putting A&D ointment on them which worked for a little while but the cuts never fully healed or closed. You have to use either Peroxide or alcohol on the cuts and let them just heal up and dry out.
Avatar n tn Sonya, I had serious cracking at the corner of lips when I did round 1 of treatment. I'm getting ready to start round 2 on Sunday and dread getting those cracks back. A fella on another board recommended Biotene Oral Balance Dry Mouth Moisturizing Gel. He said it runs about $8.00 a tube and that the packaging specifically says that it's good for people on chemo and radiation. Heck, I'm gonna give it shot, during round 2.
163305 tn?1333672171 I'd try the nystatin first. It worked great for mine - they were gone in less than 48 hours. Just apply a little with a cotton swab and wipe off any excess that goes too close to the inside edge of your lip. If the sores go really close there then you might need to just put it on lightly and avoid eating for half an hour or so. My doctor thought it was fine to use on lips. She freaked out at me putting triamcinolone anywhere on my face. I don't know about your third med. Good luck!
Avatar m tn Then three or four days after the corner of my lips started this irritation, I found a slightly redder patch near the corner of my lip, but more on the lip itself. The corner itself ceased to be irritated. on about day five, the red patch became a little rough, and there were a couple tiny red spots, I assumed this was just irritation of some today (day 6) there are two tiny bumps about a millimetre apart on my lip in the red area. they don't seem to be blisters...
168732 tn?1311715679 i have the smae problem with the lips too. if i keep vaseline on them it's better. my skin is dry and prone to rashes normally. but's it's worse on tx and even more in the winter. i have to keep lotion on and for the problem areas i use 1% hydrocortosone cream. that helps a lot.
Avatar n tn 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.
