1610851 tn?1298234476 In my 26 years of life, I have never had dry skin; never had so much as chapped lips. This winter, I noted a small patch on my knuckle that looked pink, almost like I had punched something or hit the back of my hand on something and scarred it. Then that patch started getting bigger and itching and it would crack open and bleed...probably from my scratching it. Then, I started noticing dry skin flaking off from under a couple of my finger nails, just at the tips of my fingers.
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 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 m tn ips scarred, cracked, dry, darkened I believe my lips came into contact with a contaminated lotion, and from then on, there was gradual break down in the outer tissue of the lower lip. It is no longer hydrating itself, and lip skin - dermis appears very unhealthy. I know there's a continuum of Lip Health and at this point, I don't look too much different than people with naturally unhealthy lips.
Avatar n tn I also have this problem with finger tips and cant find any information it comes and goes mostly on right hand but happens on the left hand as well. It started about 6 weeks ago. I will go to my Dr soon if I cant find information on my own.
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).
337332 tn?1305596671 Looked in the mirror today, And as it cracked for the three hundred and sixty fifth day in a row I saw broken dreams Cracked skin Bleeding lips A soul in chains A baby screaming A little girl shaking in the corner. I saw The sight of me, Pale and gaunt lost and scared. I fell to my knees and started shaking, gathering up slowly the shards of mirror that used to be a face, a person, a dream, a life I recognized.
Avatar m tn ) For me, it feels like my lips are a bit swollen, cracked(but not dry, more like theres tiny little cuts in them) burning and, really, really sticking together 24 hours per day. As for the sticking part, my whole mouth feels ...sticky? because of it. It also still feels like its spreading or something inside my lips on daily basis. Its not like i look like donald duck or something but you can definitely see that sticky effect when i speak and also the ..bubbles?
Avatar f tn I'm drinking close to 100 ounces of water or Gatorade a day but I still feel dehydrated. My lips, toes and finger tips are all dried and cracked. Before I was pregnant I didn't drink this much fluid and never had this issue. Is this normal?
Avatar n tn I have tried the olive oil and sugar mix for two days with no relief at all. My lips are burning and cracked along the edges.
Avatar m tn Sometime after week 12, I was at the dentist and he noticed the cracked corners of my lips. That caused him to look inside my mouth where there were white patches of fungus. He called it Angular Cheilitis. He then spoke with my Hepatologist who approved an oral fungacide named Fluconsole. I took it for 30 days then stopped and it came right back, so I quess I will have to take it until EOT. See this link to see if it resembles your problem. Topical fungacides might work in your case.
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...
760862 tn?1243100904 We both have questions about it, so here goes - She had been having problems with swollen hands to the point where her finger tips cracked open. We always thought that it was dry skin, maybe allergy to cleaning supply or something like that, that caused the swelling / cracked fingers. And than her legs started swelling, they did not crack like finger tips but started swelling an were just hard and really hurt her.
Avatar m tn At first i thought it was Oral Herpes but im pretty sure the symptoms i have are not leading me to that, because i experience very mild pain and it comes and goes about twice a week for a month. first off, my lips chap easily. I went on a road trip to cold weather and the corner of my mouth cracked, leading me to believe i had angular cheilitis. this lasted about 6 weeks, with no pain unless i was opening my mouth open wide, causing the sore to open up again.
406107 tn?1219016200 I've noticed on treatment that I have REALLY cracked my teeth against each other quite badly on many occeassions due to the drugs. Not sure why, but I am very lucky not to have chipped any of my teeth. If I have to go the full 48 weeks, I'm sure I'm going to break something LOL I do all of the above, but I just think all of the different meds I'm on, some of them necessitated by the treatment drugs, make it difficult to keep my mouth irrigated. I am a much higher dose of two antidepressents.
Avatar f tn Check ur hospital to see if there is a lactation consultant and a le leche league in ur area they can help alot with questions and support and ur hospital may have a place u can bring baby in to weigh when u want w/o appointment to make sure they're gaining well. LATCH IS KEY babys lips should be flared and as much of ur nipple and areola in mouth as possible if it doesn't feel right pop baby off by putting ur finger in their mouth and breaking suction pulling ur nipple out.
11260219 tn?1416655365 The only thing that ended up working for my son was Accutane but it can be pretty harsh. Dried out lips that cracked and bled. Dry eyes. AND you have to make sure you do not get pregnant while taking this medication. In the states you have to sign a form that says you will abide by the "rules" of taking this medication. It did work very well for him in the end though. Not sure if it is available where you are.
427265 tn?1444080036 I have been using a Gewhol foot salve for dry and cracked feet twice a day and lightly exfoliating my soles and heel edges after a shower, twice a week. It's helping to keep my feet comfortable. For the skin I've been using a urea based used in the treatment of ichthysosis and hyperkeratotic skin (read extreme dry and itchy skin!) and it really helps. I use a 10% one in a non lanolin base and it works great. You can get it in a 40% concentration for extreme cases. Check at a pahrmacy.
Avatar n tn This is the third time my 8 yr old daughter has had a post strep infection, strep throat, strawberry tongue, cracked lips,sunburn lke rash in genital area and peeling fingers and toes. Doctors first suggested kawasaki disease, but then said she was too old at eight and said she should have red eyes aswell. I am now worried that they may have misdiagnosed it as a post strep infection, they have put her on a three mth course of penicillian.
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.
Avatar n tn When both my nipples are erect the very tips look light colored or bloodless. I've never looked at my nipples in this kind of detail before, so I don't know if this is normal. I'm constantly inspecting my lips and neck area for anything abnormal. No blisters/itching there either. I'm constantly afraid that I might wake up tomorrow with something on my body! 1. What do you think Doctor? I promise I will trust your views and thoughts on this without doubt. Unlike the previous people I called.
Avatar n tn My dermatologist says that the skin on the finger is very thick and when there are no symptoms I should feel comftorble using my finger to do things (even masturbate) Anyone have any helpful tips for a recently diagnosed sufferer of whitlow? Thanks!
1437229 tn?1296073620 I was diagnosed in 1993 but my MS was pretty much quiet until 2007. I started having Trigeminal Neuralgia and things went down hill from there. I too have trouble in the evenings or when I am out and I am tired. I stutter and slur and have trouble with my balance so you can put those together and imagine what some people might think! he he I would agree with Kat about stopping what you are trying to say and then take a deep breath and start over...sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Avatar n tn I have had a persistent dry right palm for over 3 years now, and it has recently gotten painful and extra dry. I wulod describe it as dry, rough, thickened, cracked skin on my palm. I do not have health insurance so that is why I have not been able to go get it looked at yet. Looking closely it is dry, has cracks, itches. It makes it hard to do any type of physical work because if any dirt or debris gets in the cracks it irritates even more and hurts a bit more too.
1711722 tn?1356491154 I am on VIC. Even with my water intake, I noticed earlier this week (Week 10) that my lips were chapped, my skin is dry and my hair is parched. Time for some changes again. Any recommendations?? Thanks for your thoughts. Oh, since beginning VIC, I also have this weird side effect of milky white stuff in the corner of my eyes. Doesn't hurt or itch, but I wondered if anyone else had this side. Thanks.
Avatar f tn Well, at first I was kinda thinking Kawasaki disease....Although this occurs in younger children..It Can (upon my reading) occur sometimes in older children... PLEASE NOTE: I am in no way saying that is what it is but that is what came to mind about feet and hands peeling..
Avatar m tn I have the same problem. It started as chapped lips but not like normal chapped lips this december. Being from Toronto I assumed it was due to dry and cold weather. Someone told me to take my toothbrush and brush my lips to exfoliate them so I did and i got itchy red puffyness above my upper lip. and now it is chronic. It wont go away, maybe for a few days but it always comes back. My doc said it could be a vitimin B12 or Iron deficiency.
