Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips side


1832002 tn?1325546965 have severe cracking at the side of my lips - in fact I woke up this morning with dried blood all over the side of my mouth. I was at a bar earlier ordering a drink and felt something wet hit the side of my mouth from the bar man's hand as he handed back my change. It made contact with exactly where all the dried blood was this morning. The bar was in a pretty rough part of town and the bar man looked pretty rough.
Avatar m tn A few weeks ago i had quite badly cracked lips on one side of my mouth. I figured it was due to the cold weather as i had the same problem last year in the same place but never elsewhere on my lips. I have been applying Cymex to the area for about three weeks now but the area is still very dry and sore when i wake up. I feel like i have to pick at it when i wake up because its quite painful when i try to open my mouth.

Avatar n tn Currently, I have one pimple-like bump on one side of my lip (as seen on the left side of picture), and on the other side are small dry spots on my lip. I cannot tell WHAT in the world they are because they are rather small and not very noticeable. I have to look especially close to be able to see these dry spots on the left of my upper lip. Now I'm kind of a hypochondriac. Once I started researching all of this information on Herpes, I started flipping out, thinking that I have HSV 1.

Avatar n tn I'm 22 years old and for the past 6 or so years, I have had dry ITCHY as all get out, flaky skin on my outer labia moreso on the left side than the right. I came across this website because of a thread ( but, unfortunately, the thread was closed for commenting. So, I have made this new one to hopefully get some answers.
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 The down side is that they hurt. The tissue around the lips is cracked, and the corners are the worst. In the mornings, my lips (and surrounding damaged tissue) are covered with green stuff, and when I try to wipe it off, it feels like I'm peeling off live skin. It's difficult to eat, brush my teeth, and even talk.
Avatar n tn Not real attractive though. Also, old lipstick can cause this type rash but not the problem unless lips are cracked. Gd-luck.
Avatar n tn I've been using Abreva and lip balm together, to keep my lips moist. Possible cold sores? Just dry lips? Would Abreva help to heal sore lips in general, or just cold sores? What else could these sores and circular dry patches be, besides cold sores? V. confused. Will be quite sad if they are cold sores. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Last year around this same time, I went to my family doctor and he said I had Emphitigo (i dont think i spelled it right) and at that time, my lips werent red on the surrounding areas, they were cracked and turning orange, along with a dark brown crust forming on the right side. He prescribe amoxicillian and some ointment, after about 2 weeks my lips looked completely normal, I didnt use any chapstick at this time. After I went through the cycle he said I would no longer need it. He was wrong.
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 f tn One night I bit into a piece of an apple right on the side of my bad tooth, and somthing didnt feel right. My whole lower jaw swelled and my mouth was in so much pain. Needless to say I noticed my lower left side of my lip and jaw/cheek became numb, and has been numb since. The swelling finally went down, but I can still feel like a hard bump in my lower jaw bone. I am starting to get worried, that my lip and cheek is still numb...Is this normal?? Will the feeling ever come back?
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 f tn I've heard low levels of B12 can cause dry, cracked lips. Could this also be the cause of my increase in frequency? I know I'm grasping at straws, but I'm getting desperate. :( Thank you so much for any thoughts you might share.
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 now have scars, where I would never develop them before and a rash that seems to look like eczema all over my arms and stomach. I have experienced dry lips and other side effects but I still have just as much acne as before. I know someone who went on this drug with really bad nodular acne and they cleared up in a month. Why is it that it is not working for me, I am really discouraged.
Avatar n tn Hi, I took acutane about 6 years ago. I did get very dry cracked lips so drink lots of water. The only other side effect was I had Knee pain in the was crazy bad but I got through it....acutane for me was life changing. Good luck.
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.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be a part of Cheilitis, which is a medical condition involving inflammation of the lip. 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.
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 thought maybe these symptoms were side affects but these symptoms happened well after his surgery. Anyone have any ideas on what to do next? He is so sick and tired of the feelingin his mouth and he will not kiss me in case it is something wierd! I would appreciate any info or ideas on who to seek help from.
Avatar m tn he said it looked like I had small ulcers on my lips that looked like tiny canker sores on the actual lips and they were extremely chapped. he gave me a prescription IN CASE it turned into a cold sore... the next day (sunday), I had a small bump on my lipline, I get tiny bumps on my lipline from time to time that are NOT cold sores (I assume it's due to my addiction to lip balm) and they just go away and don't turn into blisters or anything, they're just a tiny red dot on the lipline.
Avatar n tn you do have glands on each side of the vagina, and they are under the skin. They can swell up if infection is present. all it takes is one nic from a dirty razor........just keep waiting it out, and go to the doc if it doesnt seem to go down.
