But i'm not sure if it all will heal since i'v been using PROTOPIC for almost 2 weeks now and theres still kinda brown/darker are around my lips where the eczema was. Well, i'll hope for the best...

230202 tn?1370797179 Hi everyone. At 21 weeks into treatment, my lips have cracked and on one ocassion they bled. I have a good quality lip balm and that helps at times but I was wondering what others might have used or done to combat this problem. It sort of comes and goes like the severity of the cracking. thank you all......

Avatar n tn , but to no avail. Currently, I am taking many vitamins with hope that it will help me heal in the long run. Looking back, when I took a wisdom tooth out, my dentist put vaseline on my lips because it was dried. I think from that point on my lips began to get worse and worse. Any comments would be appreciated and maybe it will help me find my way to good health again.
Avatar n tn For my eyelid redness, I have been applying it for a couple days and I noticed that the skin that was not damaged is now looking perfect, the areas that where only slightly irritated got better, but the areas badly irritated are not recovering as fast, and might get more irritated. So I will definitively use this organic coconut as maintenance for natural humidification of skin.
Avatar f tn If the incidence of chapped lips appears to be taking place for any reason other than frequent exposure to wind, and does not seem to heal with the use of over the counter lip balms, do not hesitate to seek medical attention immediately.
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 f tn For the past three weeks or so, I've had a crack in the middle of my upper lip that will not heal. Just about the time it starts to feel closed, I smile, and - bam - it opens up. Two or three years ago, I started developing sores that somewhat appear to be cold sores, but don't really run the course of what I know of cold sores. I never had cold sores before in my life, but, one of my sons suffers horribly with them, so, I was familiar with the what they're like.
Avatar n tn I do not smoke, I exercise frequently, I eat a diet rich in vegetables, lean proteins, and unrefined foods. I do not lick my lips, I do not have any allergies, and I drink at least 10 glasses of water a day. I eventually had to abandon most commercial lip balms and moisturizers, eat only bland foods in small bites so they wouldn't come into contact with my lips, and drink everything but water with a straw. It was horrible. Several different doctors could not figure out my problem.
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 ) and the dentist said this may be why my lips peel sometimes. This may help, but if not, just know that your not the only one experiencing this phenomena. Also have you checked to see if your lacking any vitamins or nutrients or whatever? My mom said that may be a cause of it too. Thanks!
Avatar m tn Also to add on, my lips is look exactly like OP.
Avatar n tn Hi amesw, Did you ever figure out what the tiny bumps on your lips were? My symptoms sound exactly like what you have. I also have thought that it could possibly be Fordyce, but the small patch of bumps on my lip are sooo tiny and are the same color as my lip that it doesn't seem to match the Fordyce symptoms. Like you, my lips are dry (they normally are not) and the small patch of very tiny bumps feels scaly when i run my tongue over it.
Avatar n tn I'm weighing whether or not to go the epipen route and will decide later today depending on how much worse it gets. My angioedema doesn't seem to have a specific cause although I suspect stress has something to do with it. I've had food allergies in the past but after keeping track of my diet and activities there doesn't seem to be a link. The best my allergist can come up with is to treat the symptoms as they occur.
408312 tn?1202062473 Originally I was misdiagnosed as having cold sores, which meant about three weeks of having top and bottom lips covered in super dry, blister crusted lips and me not putting any chapstick on my poor lips and taking antivirals. Finally I went to a dermatologist who told me I definitely did not have cold sores. Got diagnosed as having perioral dermatitis because by this point I had a full on rash/pimples around my mouth and chin area as well as my lips.
1353650 tn?1429466974 Nyastatin will not kill all of the overgrowth of candida by itself. This is why I added the symbion probiotic. I also take a probiotic 50 billion 1 time a day. It is made by RAW in a green box and is kept in the refrigerated section. This probiotic is used to replace what you have lost. You can find it at Vitamin Shoppe. I am not sure if it is even necessary to used probiotics. The goal here is to rid the small bowel of bacteria because it is not suppose to have any.
Avatar n tn The sooner you can drain it, the sooner it will heal. It's important to know Behcet's Disease is not contagious, it just happens because there is something wrong with the persons immune system. I just wanted to get the word out about it because it's really bad and you don't want it to happen to you and wait 15 years like I did to know what was wrong. I was told over and over that I had herpes even though all my cultures were negative.
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 f tn I pray that you recover well very soon. All will not be lost just as afrochique123 said, there's always treasure at the end of the rainbow. Stay positive for you and your hubby. Take good care. Oh I believe taking raspberry leaf will help with the recovery of the uterus/womb. With all my blessings and prayers for you.
Avatar n tn Heavily apply the cream, or even lip balm will heal it. Nothing to be worried about.
1641803 tn?1300761891 I don't know what the blister is from but you need to start drinking a lot more water. dry cracked lips need lots of water to heal. The blister may be a cold soar and go to any drugstore for a medicated lip balm.
Avatar n tn it will scab over, and i will be able to leave it alone for a max of 3 weeks while treating it with neosporin but the black scab never goes away and i pick it off and i can see the new skin underneath but it just keeps scabbing. is my lip never going to heal completely? will the black scab eventually fall off and expose the skin again?
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.

Cheilitis is associated with many conditions from Vitamin B12 deficiency, iron deficiency anemia, be a symptom of allergies.can also be caused by taking the (retinoid) drug Isotretinoin (brand name Roaccutane).
Avatar f tn He has been so conditioned now, that it is very unlikly that his tongue is outside of his mouth. The Carmex will heal the lips if applied often, even when they are not cracked.
