Cracked lips won't go away

Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips won't go away


Avatar n tn it took a month for it to go away and it made me think everyone was always looking at my lips. well, last week i went to the pool for only an hour, with spf 15 on my lips, and they still got burned! i had always thought this was cold sores, but i guess not? i've been using anbesol and carmex... seems to help, but won't make it go away. where can i get these products you guys are using? do i have to have them perscribed?
Avatar n tn I do have Burt’s Bees hand slave so I'm going to try that right now and I'm going to go buy the Mario Badescu Control Cream that someone recommended. I want this to go away so I can put my make-up on each day. This is ridiculous. It's been almost 2 weeks with this situation and I went to the dr. they told me to take Benadryl and wanted to prescribe a steroid but I'm 8 mo pregnant. That could be the reason I have this ... who knows.
Avatar n tn doc said I needed Vit B to make it go away - he was right. I live in NZ and here we have a spread called vegemite which is high in Vitamin B and thats what everyone eats to get rid of this problem. It works. So find a good source of it, or take B complex capsules. In the mean time, you need to regularly put on some kind of cream to keep it moist - I use vasaline - patrolium jelly.
405614 tn?1329147714 Yes peeling can go along with cracked lips. You won't like this part of the answer but being outside at all those soccer games probably has a lot to do with the lack of moisture in your lips. Try not to lick you lips - that only makes it worse. the other option could be your are dry from an allergic reaction to something, but if that's the case I would still say its in tandem with those soccer games!
Avatar n tn For about 5 days now I've been using blixtex medicated ointment (new tube) to keep my lips moisturized because they seem to dry out SO fast. By the way, I'm from Pa. I hope it will go away soon, because my lips feel so dry & textured from the bumps, I try to refrain from using them and my husband hates it b/c it feels wierd even to kiss him.
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 For about 10 to 11 years I have this problem of bumps showing up on my skin. They are warm to the touch, and are raised. They usually go away over night. Once in awhile half of my lip will swell 3 to 4 times norm size. My knees swell. I have even had these knots on the bottom of my foot. One of the strange ones is that my finger tip will swell. About one month ago I had surgery, and it made my body go into over drive. One day I had about 100 bumps. Went to the doc.
Avatar n tn This type of peeling occurs from a mild chemical irritation and will go away after a few days of stopping the cause. It is like an unintended chemical peel. Most Crest Brand tooth paste has Tarter Protection. Most of this is caused by tooth pastes with the tarter protection or complete formulas. Examples of causes are: water softeners, chlorine, mouthwashes, toothpastes with special detergents (such as tartar control or complete formulas), overuse of lozenges, mints, and chewable vitamins.
Avatar n tn it will either go away on its own and if it hurts that bad go in they may need to drain it...
Avatar n tn Thank you for giving me the courage to confront my own demons. Love and peace, Lisabet.
Avatar n tn Hospice suggested withholding anything given orally, meds, food, and water because it might trigger another episode of vomiting (red blood is worse). Thinking I had to give her something as her lips cracked from dryness I gave her an ice chip and started the vomiting one more time. She finally fell into a restless sleep her hands fidgeting constantly even in sleep. After praying and knowing she was in pain I gave her .5 ml of Oxycodone and a sip of water that she was able to hold down.
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 I wash my face everyday w/ water and a washcloth but it still just won't go away. It's embarassing b/c even when I wear makeup you can still see where it's flaky and dry. Some days it's worse than others and some days it itches and some days it doesn't.
Avatar f tn 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??? Also, I have a rash now by my lips from I think using too much product on my face and washing my lips with dish soap that was too concentrated, it first made my face peel and very dry, so I put lotion on it, and now there's little red bumps-a rash by my lips. What can help to get rid of this rash??
Avatar n tn My tongue concerns me most, its like white/brown furry tongue (brown from coffee) that won't go away. I've been using a tongue scraper now but without using it, the fungus looking stuff will get really thick around my large Papillea/taste buds towards the back of my tongue. All symptoms have come and gone now except for the following...
522336 tn?1215884409 I left it alone after putting a cotton ball soaked with alcohol on it in the hopes that would dry it out and go away. Well, the place got a little scab on it that I would scratch the top off of only for it to grow back overnight. Anyway, at some point the scabbing stopped, I forgot all about little bump and paid no attention to it anymore.
173975 tn?1216261375 and the corner of my mouth is cracked, dry sore...won't go away...put carmex on all the time but doesnt seem to be healing far as the breakouts...i feel like a leper...they are in places i have never broken out and they don't heal with zit cream, antibiotic ointment..etc...look like boils..some of them....and they hurt so bad....even have some on my scalp...have some hair loss now...if i run my hands through my hair i get a nice handful...
435139 tn?1255463991 But my midwife said it can be normal for some to have more pain than others. Just always be sure that everytime he nurses, his lips are like duck lips. Sometimes if the bottom or top lips seems to be curled in, even just a tiny bit, it can make things worse. Other than that, I wish you the best and hope the pain eases up sooner for you than it did for me.
Avatar n tn However, I recently started to try to use eye cream directly on my lips before I go to bed and so far it is working wonders for me. My lips have never been so soft and moist :) So I think trying the eye cream is worth a try. I am currently using an eye cream from Clinique.
1807991 tn?1438783370 I am going crazy, and I thought I already was! LOL !!!!! I believe I should go into more detail just to make this clear for all of you: You all don't know me that well, so just generally speaking I am VERY laid back, over friendly, extravert that loves to dance, sing and play hard!
630458 tn?1223263163 Pimples did not go away....always flare ups.... I Have had acne before in my teenage years (around 14-15 years old ) on the chin. Then no pimples for a while. Then acne appeared around 19-20 years old but it was a different type of acne...small little white heads, looked like a rash almost. I have tried proactiv and it worked! I was pimple free until 2 years ago! What happened?
208164 tn?1189759432 It's dissapearing and I figure it was just cracked lips since my lips have been pretty chapped lately and from looking at cold sore pics, and talking to a nurse when I thought my daughter had a cold sore, it would have to be crusty with some pus and my lesion was far from that description. As for the tiny bumps on my lips, I read a post in the dermatology forum that it wasn't serious, according to the doctor there. I posted a question to Dr.
Avatar n tn I have been treated with Mupirocin, Atopiclair, Aclovate, Zovirax, oral antibiotics and VAltrex. It does not go away. I have been told it is herpes, impetigo and bacterial all at different times. The part on the outside of my nose is red and looks like my pores are very large. At times it will flake or get white heads. The inside part of the rash looks red and like my nostrils are cracked. At times it is painful and other times just itchy.
Avatar n tn While in labor I was only allowed ice chips. My mouth was so dry my lips cracked and hurt. Also, I had terrible back labor. I did not have an epidural because that scares me. My mother brought a microwaveable heating pad. That was a huge relief. While that was warming up in the microwave my husband and mother massaged my lower back to ease the pain. I recommend massage oil or lotion. I didn't have any and had a raw spot on my back from the constant rubbing.
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.
377521 tn?1203476772 My main sides have been fever, out of breath easily, have yummy sores on my face, sides of lips cracked, sores in my mouth come and go, can't eat spicy foods any more, blah blah blah. For the end result, it's worth every bit of it. Prior to tx, I worked over 50 hours a week, dropped to 30 hrs and now down to 15 - 20 hrs. Work at least takes my mind of my sides, but some days I can barely make it to the mail box.
418182 tn?1204508006 I did get checked for that to cause a symptom of that are having blist, and infec that don't go away, and the very dry cracked feet. Mine turned out neg. to. Have agreat day and I hope you all are doing ok!!!
Avatar n tn But i can feel it im going to do the salt thing now it is just like that fly at a dinner that just wont go away cause it will go away then its back in a few days is it the change in weather. i dont know and when it heals up it kind of looks like if you pop gum on your lips and a little is still there but no hurting no buring just a little spot. I hate it.
Avatar n tn Just for the record - I ask my partner's their status and don't pick up dates at bars (don't even go to them) or shady locations. Dating situations. Also, just for the record - I always wear condoms for anal sex with all my partners (even in past monogamous relationships - you never know who may cheat. My concerns center around Oral sex. While sometime ago I have read that Dr. Bob say's the risk is minimal - I don't understand why it is.
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?
