Cracked lips side mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips side mouth


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.

1273473 tn?1270779440 Im on treatment for hep c and have had a lot of side effects come and go, lately Ive been experiencing cracked corners of my mouth and its very painful not to mention embarassing and ugly, did anyone else experience this while on treatment and if so what can I do to make it go away or somewhat better?
Avatar n tn If it is not a cold sore then it could just be a pimple like you said or a heat bump. Dry and cracked lips plus sores on mouth may also indicate a vitamin deficiency and along with other symptoms could indicate stomatitis. They say when you have problems with your stomach you will have problems with your mouth as well.
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 Not real attractive though. Also, old lipstick can cause this type rash but not the problem unless lips are cracked. Gd-luck.
Avatar m tn He told me that it was Angular Stomatitus and that I should always keep something on my lips and the corner’s of my mouth. He also told me that there was yeast in my mouth and he gave me a prescription for some kind of yeast infection medicine. I went and got my prescription and they told me to just get the real yeast infection medicine… well I felt kind of strange putting it on my lips but I did. So the next day, I woke up and saw that my lips had broken out into a kind of red rash.
Avatar f tn 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? Should I be worried??
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 I have the same symptoms, it started on one side of the inside of my lip and now I have it on both sides, a small patch, but my mouth is very dry. I will throw away all of my chap sticks, but it’s getting cold in NY. Wouldn't antibiotic cream work faster? Thanks again!
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 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...
Avatar n tn Cracked corners of the lips has plagued me for the past year. The only thing I found that keeps it under control is a prescription ointment called ertaczo. The cracks used to extend from the mouth about an inch diagonally to my chin. They hurt like heck when I smile, eat, even speak unless I'm using the ertaczo. I haven't had inner mouth problems (yet) but Ia lot of people here seem to swear by "Magic Mouth Wash.
Avatar n tn Why do you weigh under 100 pounds? Is it that your mouth sores prevent you from eating? Is it that you are on too much Synthroid? What dosage are you taking? What are your current TSH, FT3, FT4 levels? Find out what's making you hypo. Is it Hashimoto's? TGab and TPOab blood tests plus thyroid ultrasound will determine Hashi. Find a good endo, one who specializes in thyroid, not diabetes. Here's a link I used to find my new endocrinologist: http://www.thyroid-info.
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 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 m tn I play an instrument and sometimes the corner of my mouth gets kind of cracked and irritated because of the moisture. I obsessively put on chapstick to keep my lips moisturized. This little crack or whatever in the corner of my lips remained for three days, only slightly stinging when I opened my mouth too wide, but seemed a tad tingly....but I have a phobia of cold sores since I have somehow managed to escape getting them from my mum all these years.
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.
163305 tn?1333672171 I've been getting sores right in the corner of my mouth, where my lips meet. Though the cream I use for canker sores was getting rid of them, this week, it's not working. The sore is related to tx, not a big deal, but annoying. Any suggestions ?
Avatar m tn The problem is that I have cramps in the stomach and my mouth is dry. and My lips are dry and looks cracked. I told you about the white lines inside of the cheek gums. It's now faded away but I see the impressions (it isn't white but regular color like my gums). I also feel a little dazed from time to time for a short time. What can I take over the counter to relieve some of these symptoms from Walgreen or CVS?
Avatar n tn Is it like saying just taking longer birth control pills? What are the side effects? What are the benefits? Has FDA approved? Where i can search more about Yaz? Will it affect my future plan of having a healthy pregnancy? Also, i was told if i do want to get pregnant, i should wait 6 months after taking the birth control pills. is that true?
Avatar m tn I don't know where to go, so I am coming here. About 4 months ago, I started to experience a severely salty taste in my mouth and my lips became severely chapped and then "cracked". I initially thought this had something to do with a medication I was on, because it continued on for a month and when I got a new bottle the next month, it went away pretty fast.
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 n tn HI All I know this sounds like a silly question but it seems since I started with the Ribavirun - I'm on 1600 mg a day my nose is dripping, raw inside, blowing it a lot - I don't know if I have a cold, an allergy or a sx. My lips are also cracked on the side - so drinking tons of fluids but looking for a concensus if I have a cold or sx. Sounds strange but Not really sure.
