Cracked lips that won't heal

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips that won't heal


Avatar f tn I forgot the name but it's shape isn't like the normal bottle nipple. The nipple will look more like breast.
Avatar n tn She did say that it is thought that it can sometimes be brought on by too much lip balm. I will say my lips are _better_ without putting anything on them, but they don't seem to be improving much, and we've had 60-100% humidity here in Boston lately. I'm interested to read the above posts saying that stress can be a cause as well.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem! Dry, cracked skin that I have to peel off of my upper eyelids. It comes in waves. It might be bad for a week and go away for a month, or vice versa. It seems to be worse when the weather is hot or dry, but sometimes that makes no difference. And sometimes it cracks so badly it bleeds, like chapped lips. I went to my doctor and he said that I had a "skin condition." I'd never wanted to beat someone so badly.
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 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 My mother-in-law uses them for cold sores, she says the L-lysine helps dry them out faster), idk if that helped my lips heal faster, or whatever it was just out ran its course though.
Avatar n tn I have had swollen tongue, swollen lips and fingers, welts all over the body. One thing that I am sure about is that the lips and hands could be related to taking aspirin. I used to take an adult dosage and had severe reactions. Then I was determined to be able to take one baby aspirin. But if I have to get off the aspirin for surgery, then it comes back when I resume. Currently I am off the stuff, however I am having other issues after bone transplant dental surgery.
Avatar n tn I noticed when in the shower the other night a redish bump on the outisde of one of the vagina lips. Its quite tender to touch but just sort of feels like a spot, that same kind of lumpyness lol. Ive never had sex or been involved with anyone who has any kind of std or genital warts, so i dont think its any of them. I shaved about 2 weeks ago.

Avatar n tn These dreams/visions always happen just as I'm falling asleep (ya know when your mind starts to wonder right before you doze off, eyes are closed and everythign but you are still conscious).... that stage is when I realize that I'm about to have one of these scary dreams. so I'll either opt to stay awake or turn the lights on for a minute then try to sleep again. The most recent one I had, I was asleep in my bed with my boyfriend...
Avatar f tn Hi, I have two questions. First, my lips have cracked/ or lip fissures on the corners of my mouth. How can I get rid of them?? I have used 1%hydrocortisone cream, zinc cream, washing my face w/water and soap and then applying vasoline, Aquaphor and it won't go away. What can I use to help it???
173975 tn?1216261375 In the first mo. or so...I got that around my mouth...Itchy lips and itchy around the mouth. I felt like Ronald McDonald. I started to moisturize with a lip balm..not just on lips but around mouth. I was thinking..candidis. Next day went and got plain organic yogurt w/acidopholis and added some fruit, a lil honey and have been eating that since. I believe the the many cultures in the yogurt cleared it up for me. Hope this helps you, Wyn. Almost nightly I put lip balm around mouth.
Avatar n tn With all of those products I have experienced the red swollen, peeling lips. Please keep posting anything that you've tried that helps!
Avatar m tn But recently, I developed what seemed to be a yeast infection, I was prescribed Diflucan and most symptoms to seem to subside (i originally had some cracked skin in between the lips like slightly above the clitoris). However, the day after I looked at my butt and the cracked skin/rawness came back. I'm just wondering if this could be related to herpes. There has never been anything remotely close to a lesion, bump, or blister.
Avatar n tn I was tryng to avoid licking my lips to pass on any germs,at the same time this could of made my mouth dry,later that night my bottom lip was so dry I think it caused a cracked in the middle and it started bleeding.So thats two spots on the lip..should I be worried?Today the two marks look like little cuts, but combined with my partners story im a little worried.
132578 tn?1189759437 Evey week it is a new wound that won't heal. I still have bruises from January and last August that haven't healed yet. Does it seem like whatever you have gets worse? I have what I guess is varicose veins around my ankles and they were particularly wild and bugged out looking today. They have so many switchbacks I bet the veins in an inch long stretch of skin would pull out to be about 6" long. Not that it is tx related but tx seems to be making it worse.
Avatar n tn Now I guess I am addicted to the elidel because i won't leave home without it. I only use it twice a day after washing my face. It's so frustrating that something so minor could be so difficult to treat and so painful.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, I have similar problems that started 2 months ago with cracked lips on the corners, then the skin around eyes started to get redness on the corners... and now it's progressed to puffy red bags under my eyes with dry skin. I look OLD now with the deep creases. And the patches of redness by my mouth. I have had psoriasis, it runs in the family, and eczema, but I've never had it on my eyes or near my lips ever.
Avatar f tn they dry santa ana conditions here in san diego have certainly given me dry lips and cracked sores in the corners. i use aquaphor. it really helps my lips. i also have a bump on my tongue. i thought i bit it but after 2 weeks i still have it. it's gone down but it's still there. i'm having it checked out. good luck with everything. i'm sure it'll all work out. keep me posted. have a safe new year's.
Avatar n tn Try using a really good lip balm, i used blistex, but have heard that carmex is good too. Don't go for the cheap chapstick kinds. In my experience my lips appear healthier, pinkier and fuller. Don't go overboard on price, ones that you can in a drugstore should do. (I've also tried expensive brands like clinique, they were useless) Vaseline (petroleum jelly) didnt help much, it was really the blistex relief cream that helped the most (although it left white residue on lips after, not nice!
Avatar f tn She randomly got a swollen throat. She also spent the prior weekend with irritated skin, lips cracked and cracks in the corners that would not heal up. She has heterozygous SLC19A1 and FOlR2, MTHFD1, Mthfrc677T gene and is on a methlyfolate supplement homozygous for TCN2 - takes methyl B12 but she got a high B12 result once after taking the methyl B12 ?? but we are trying to rule out if she was getting B12 from a multi at the same time.
Avatar n tn 1) How do you the oil glands slowly grow back to the normal levels before accutane, did somebody inform you of this? just curious 2) Do you think its possible that they won't come back? I am very upset about this because i feel like i need some sebum on the surface of my skin to feel comfortable.
Avatar n tn It can help on your eyelids, corner of mouth, lips, tongue, or any other dry/cracking places. It helps soothe and heal small chafed areas. It's available in health food stores in a 1 oz bottle; it's pricey, but it lasts forever. You can pop a Vitamin E gelcap to try this out before you make the investment. For nosebleed, in particular, letting your bedroom have a bit more humidity can make a difference; this can help your eyes, too.
177465 tn?1288242063 My little guy has broken out with a few patches of baby acne (after giving that darn formula..grrr). He's gorgeous, nonetheless, but is there anything that I should use on this?
Avatar n tn it looks/feels/stretches just like the lips downs there. it's about 1.5 inches long and a little less that and inch wide. I rubbed it again and another piece came off... it was a little bit smaller but still the same thing....idk why it happened or what it means....i didn't feel it and it doesn't hurt, but i'm just kinda freaked out by this....
660300 tn?1224793961 I knew since I could still feel things like hot/cold when I touched it that the nerve hadn't been completely severed and that there was a high likelihood that it would heal eventually. I decided not to worry about it because it can take up to 6 months to fully heal, so there's not really anything I could do. On day 7, I woke up and had a pretty substanstial change in what I could feel - it still felt Novacained, but I could distinguish between changes in pressure when I touched it.
Avatar n tn He has been fully tested, I could not be the day he was because of the antibiotics I was on, but his results came back a resounding negative, so, the question is, since he tested negative, won't I also test negative? How do I heal the tiny tear that seems to cause me so much grief? Much more so mental than physical, but I am now afraid to have sex with him again. We have not been with any other partners.
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.
