Cracked lips remedies

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips remedies


Avatar n tn Alright, well, first off, since I was a child, I've been getting cracked lips on the corners of my mouth on rare occasions. I'm now 17 years old, and I still get them every once in awhile during the cold weather, or if I don't get enough hydration, but since I've been drinking lots of water, these cracked lips haven't appeared in a long time. Well, at least until recently.
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 n tn my lips are not cracked they are just dry. i ll try the home remedies and the over the cointer one.
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago, I went to visit my physician regarding a problem I had with a ring of redness around my lips - more prominent on my bottom lip - it was a lighter, tender pink shade and kind of looked like I had been drinking lots of red kool-aid. I also had constant dry, cracked and bleeding lips, and tried everything from drinking plenty of water and making sure I wasn't licking them.
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 Technically speaking, as long as your lips aren't cracked, you can used infected chapstick without breaking out in little bumps. But definitely not recommended because it's usually very hard to tell if you have lesions or not. Ok here's what I did to cure it: 1. Clean the lip of any chapstick. 2. Take a cue tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and rolled it over the infected area a couple times. (**see note below) 3. Let the alcohol dry off/evaporate. 4. Cover lips in antibacterial ointment.
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.
Avatar n tn I was looking for something else & found the above comments. About 2 yrs. ago, or when ever pro health crest came out, I was one of the first to try it. Until I read all comments, I never associated the skin inside the mouth. Thinking back, it was a little while after brushing & i had changed to P.H. Crest. I didn't care much for it & switched to something else & i haven't had it since.
Avatar n tn I've recently had two very uncomfortable bouts of rashes occurring on my lips and penis at the same time. The first came about eight weeks ago. It began with what looked like tiny, slightly burning, tingling blisters at the corners of my lips (both sides). Within a day, dozens of tiny bumps in clusters of lines began to form at the top edge of my top lip. These tiny bumps (size of head of pin) then spread to my lower lip (only the parts exposed to the air).
Avatar n tn i found these two really read painful bumps on my vagina it cant be from shaving because i dont shave the lips or just outside of them!!! im scared!! it hurts really really really really bad! but i havent been sexually active in three months! wouldnt it have shown up earlier if it were genital herpes or warts??? it isnt crusty or anything, and today is my first day noticing it! could it be from masturbating??? help!
Avatar f tn However, my lips have gotten very chapped and cracked throughout that time. Now I'm left with what I think are scars? My lips are now lined with wrinkles. They're not even fine lines, they're like valleys in my lips that are very noticeable when I smile. I don't know exactly what they are. Can I fix these? Is there anyway I can fix these with home remedies or anything without receiving treatment? If not, what treatments could I receive? Thank you !!

6807839 tn?1386440325 This is my first pregnancy and I have decided to do this as natural as possible meaning no pharmaceuticals at all. I have a stuffy head, dry cracked lips, sneezing like crazy.
Avatar f tn // Make an appointment to see your doctor again so that he can take a swab of the corners of your lips and from inside your mouth to find out if there is a fungal issue and also ask your doctor to run some blood tests with regard to ruling out any medical conditions.
Avatar m 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.
13083825 tn?1428486173 Perhaps you could get a small jar and see if it works for you. I put some on my grandson's cracked lips and it worked really well. Of course your problem is more than just cracked lips. But as you have tried other things, it is worth having a go.
Avatar m tn the outside on my lips and chin were healed with that.thank god but my borders of my lips were still itchy and corners still cracked. i went to see another doctor now because it was already more than 1 month i have been through and my lips were slightly swollen. now this doctor checked my mouth and saw white lesion and told me its actually oral candiasis also known as oral thrush. it was a yeast infection. he gave nystatin oral drops and piriton to prevent swollen lips.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a really dark area around the corner of my mouth - it's quite large on one side of my mouth. It's not on the lips or on the upper lip (moustache area). It's really noticeable. Is it because of the chapped lips I had? It isn't sore/painful. What can I/should I use? I have some Bio-Oil at home - would scar treatments help? Or is it some sort of pigmentation thing? I've read around a bit and many products contain Hydroquinone...
162279 tn?1270604959 I am breastfeeding a 2 week old .Does anyone have any advice or remedies for sore, cracked nipples? I have tried a cream called Lansinoh and it is doing nothing. Has anyone found anything that really works?
Avatar m tn around the same time my lips felt a little chapped, then I developed cracks at the corners of my mouth. My lips no longer feel chapped, but the cracks at the corners are still there. The seem to be a little itchy as well. Of course I would love to go see a doctor, but I'm nearly broke, unemployed, and uninsured. I just bought Monostat 3 and am giving that another go(just applied it about 3 hours ago).
Avatar m tn last winter, many here mentioned the varied skin problems that plagued them and the remedies that worked for their specific condition. I already know that U-lactin or any lotion with lactic acid and urea works best for moisturizing dry, scaly skin. I don't have any generalized rashes, only the spot in my back where the bra strap clasps, and use cortisone for that one, The one thing that might end this lengthy tx is the slits and splits in my hands and lips.
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.
652671 tn?1353715765 She prescribed Extine 20mg this after noon and before taking one i did a little of my own research online and found out its not all its cracked up to be. I later looked into some natural remedies like Valerian and so far people seem to be all good about it, exept a few! As they do. Either way i was just curious if anyone has actually gradually gotten over anxiety with these remedies or does it only help while ur taking it?
Avatar n tn Typically the skin on the hands is too thick for the virus to easily penetrate to infect but if you have open cuts, chewed finger nails, dry cracked skin etc, it can get in there. Plus most adults already have hsv1 orally so they are protected quite a bit from getting it on their hands.
Avatar f tn I already gained 35lbs. I hate it. My skin looks terrible. My lips are so cracked they bleed. Self-esteem has dropped tremendously.

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 n tn My mouth has been cracked on the sides of the lips for about a month, bleeding cracked ... now I am virus-free or better said undedectable on the test taken, since no test measures to zero. Is that a possible mode of transmission of my wife has sores in her mouth (if I was viremic)? If she bled while brushing? I would say yes -- no doubt about it. Is that alarming to the general public? I don't know.
Avatar n tn I used to get it on my lips as well and it would turn into the worst dry cracked lips ever. I finally figured out it is a yeast allergy. I was making bread with my mom and I put my hands in the dough. They immediately began to itch and broke out in the bumps all over. After lengthy elimination diets I have discovered I am allergic to yeast and some wheat. When I cut them both out of my diet a laundry list of other problems went away as well.
