1475230 tn?1287084111 I usually wipe it off with the towel I just used to dry off with since it's damp. Then cover your lips with any chapstick brand. When it's cold out and my lips are cracked and dry from the weather, I put the sugar mess on my lips and I cover my lips with a warm wet rag. It helps the lips absorb the moisture while the sugar and oil can work to keep the moisture in. Also, the sugar is alpha-hydroxy rich so it helps your skin glow.
Avatar m tn If you peel this dry skin, the healing process starts all over again with dry skin on your lip. Dehydration is the commonest cause of dry cracked lips. Drink plenty of water and see. The other possibility is iron and Vit B deficiency. Along with multivitamin B (not a multivitamin which also has other vitamins) take an iron preparation and see. They can also be caused by allergies and infections. You could either be suffering from contact dermatitis or from allergy to some food.
Avatar f tn licking your lips, which is common when they are dry and irritated, but that tends to irritate the lips even more. When the corners of the lips are cracked, bacteria and yeast that are normally present in the mouth can get into those cracks when there is some dripping of saliva at nighttime and cause more inflammation.
Avatar n tn I have had a problem with my lips for about the last 18 months. The lower lip is swollen and parts of the skin go through a cycle of being red and sore, drying, and eventually falling off. The upper lip is also effected around the bottom, in the middle, but only slightly. Whenever I eat the lips tend to swell slightly and the skin around the lower lip goes red. After researching this site, I believe it is cheilitis. I think I have had angular cheilitis when I was 18.
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 f tn Herpes infection is another possibility if there is a history of kissing or sexual contact (can get aggravated in presence of vitamin deficiencies, dry cracked lips, infections etc). Also get your blood sugar checked both fasting and two hour after food to know what if you have diabetes. Hypothyroidism too can cause this. A lip balm preferably petroleum jelly, Vit B supplements, iron, and honey should help. If it does not help, please consult a skin specialist. Take care!

Avatar m tn I know it's not dehydration, I ONLY drink water, and I drink alot, it's not a vitamin deficiency I take my multi vitamins What's going on with my lips, it's terrible, I don't want to leave my house looking like a clown each day.
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 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 If you have been cured then please repond asap under Peeling Lips ect.. I have the same symptoms, red lips from peeling and imflamation, a little burning and itching from imflamation and constant peeling and maceration. I myself am baffled as to what could have caused this. Ive went over in my head a million time what I did different that month, week, day and year when I got this and have come up with nothing.
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 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 Everything they make has made my lips worse and caused cracked corners in my lips. I like Blistex, Burt's Bees, and for daytime when I want a little color, Maybelline Baby Lips. I really like Blistex Deep Renewal for whenever. I wear it alone and under lipstick. When I have really bad cracked lips in the corners, I use Eucerin cream and glob it on the corners (you're doing it right when you look ready for a night out ;) ) of my lips until they clear up.
Avatar m tn Not sure if this is a fungus, a case of herpes (HSV), or what ?? Severely chapped lips, darkened, shaded on the edges, cracked, dry lip tissue. What's going on ? Of course, I'd be able to research elsewhere online (other forums) or even get a pro diagnosis, from an online medical professional. Site/Resource Recommendations ?
Avatar f tn Lip Moisturizer (it's in the blue tube) almost constantly and drinking about 8 glasses of water a day. My lips were the opposite though. They split and cracked on the outside but itched and swelled on the inside. It may seem like a pain but the chapstick really help- and I do mean specifically that one. Mine got so bad that neosporin, abreva, blistex, carmax, even bagbalm did nothing for it. I tried everything and that's all that works if I let it get bad.
408312 tn?1202062473 I'm in my 40s and started having swollen lips around May 2012 followed by chapped and cracked lips. All I could do was apply petroleum jelly. When it got bad I used Hydrocortisone Butarate and that helped. This went on for 6 months with the only relief being the 3 weeks we were on vacation and camping most of the time (not a lot of fancy cooking). In Nov 2012, I developed small blisters around the perimeter of my mouth that popped then crusted.
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 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 Lack of this vitamin can cause cracked lips. I presume that you are using a lubricant to protect your lips. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn //www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Painful-Cracked-Lips 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 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.
Avatar n tn Keep getting staph infections from the issue, have taken antibiotics doxicyclin, bactrim ds, and famvir for viral, used cortisones creams, elidel creams, yeast/fungal cream, vaseline, taken vitamins, oral predisone. Nothing is wokring. My lips get sore, dry , start to get little bumps on them, gets a little crusty, gets inflamed and irritated. Tests have been done for autoimmune diseases, Thyroid, blood work, all seems to be negative.

Avatar m tn Also, lower half of my face is beet red with my lip line totally cracked and scaly, top and bottom. I have quarter-sized red scaly patches on both temples as well. When it happened, I could feel the change. It felt like my face was morphing and my lower face went from normal to beet red and my lower face got really tight. My lips and lip line started cracking and by bedtime, they were bleeding and peeling. No change in my forehead.
