Dry cracked lips during pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Dry cracked lips during pregnancy


Avatar n tn Treatment of Fordyce spots includes CO2 laser or electro desiccation, TCA chemical peels(temporary treatment),diathermy or laser vaporization. For your dry lips, avoid licking the lips as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before. Drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements(esp vit B) and do not apply lipstick or other cosmetic products for some days. Use a humidifier to moisturize the air in your home and apply shea butter or Vaseline on your lips.
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 n tn my doctor said sometimes his patients even use a hair dryer to dry off...after a bath... he also said, its normal for women to be in so much pain from it...feeling like vomiting...unable to sit down, or sometimes even walk properly... one doctor was amazed i was able to even sit down!! ..
6807839 tn?1386440325 This is my first pregnancy and I have decided to do this as natural as possible meaning no pharmaceuticals at all. I have a stuffy head, dry cracked lips, sneezing like crazy.
Avatar f tn On days 6-8 I had some mild cramping which my RE said could be from implantation. Then on the day before my Beta test I had some nausea during the afternoon. Beta was done 11 days past ET and I got a BFP!!! Try not to worry to much, alot of people say they feel no symptoms at all and still get a BFP. Best of luck to you.
Avatar n tn It started as a bad head cold on Tues and Wed with diarhea the progressed to a bad cough. On Friday and Saturday I woke up with lips so cracked and dry they were bleeding...Finally, Sat I went to the ER afraid of dehydration. THey sent me home saying I was not dehydrated (they did not do any bloodworkk or an u/s as I had no pain)....although my blood pressure was elavated 132 over 80 and I am a rock steady 110 over 70...anyway, last night I was up most off the night with the cough, chills, etc.
Avatar n tn I went to see a doctor about it and they didn't find anything but what she told me what that whatever it was, was making my lips dry (or at least I was getting the feeling that they were dry--they didn't actually look fry). And because of that I would lick my lips more often and that on top of the itchy feeling was bruising my lips. If you don't do anything and continue to itch then the lips would just get darker and the area affected seemed to spread to just above and below my lips.
Avatar n tn I recently had dry, cracked chapped lips and continuously put on lip balm to try and heal it. Instead I developed what looked like a rash on the center of my top and bottom lip. No pain. Minor itching. Red with eventually a yellow scab. I went to a dermatologist who took a culture (haven't received the results yet) and also ordered blood work to see if it was a cold sore. These were my results: HSV I/II IgG Rflx I-II Type Sp HSV, IgM I/II Combination <0.91 HSV I/II IgG 9.
Avatar n tn My experience with Accutane was not a pleasant one, there was severe drying of the mucous membranes and constant thirst and cracked bleeding lips, dry eyes, and depression. Accutane can be a very dangerous drug. It can cause birth defects and I was required (and believe that it is still required) to have a pregnancy test done every month to be eligible for the medication to be refilled. You should also have a liver panel run before and during treatment.
Avatar f tn Are you putting anything on your nipples to soothe them? I use Lansinoh and it helps tremendously!! It soothed the cracked, dry skin within 2 days and it's nice because you don't have to wipe it off before a feeding.Hang in there!! Maybe pumping once your milk comes in will work better for you if you are still really sore. It's not as painful, so it can give your nips a break!
Avatar n tn I don't think I've seen one individual indicating treatment longer than 5 months. For those women who are concerned about pregnancy AFTER Accutane (pregnancy is forbidden during treatment as it causes SEVERE birth defects): I completed my first treatment with Accutane when I was about 19. The results were nothing short of miraculous! The results lasted until after I had my first child at the age of 25.
Avatar n tn So if your having this problem after using a pad or panty liner it is most like just skin irritation. Just stop the use of the pad and put lotion on the dry cracked skin ( Only on the Outside!! And use a Non-scented lotion to keep from further irritation!!
Avatar f tn the inside of my nostrils was dry and cracked, my lips were dry and cracked, I had dry patches on my eyelids and under eye area. I did a course of prednizone and it helped, got rid of it while I was on the meds, but as soon as it ran out the itching started back up. Now I once again have itching/rash on my arms, shoulders, thighs, and breasts. The dryness isn't as bad, but my skin is drying out were I scratch/have a rash. GRRRR. Hoping for a referral to a dermatologist soon. This is crazy.
Avatar n tn I have suffered with this since the birth of my son and it appears to me that the fluid sores come 'out' following peeling potatoes indicating a possible starch allergy i hace never suffered with this before and if i dont peel potatoes it seems to simply be dry skin, however i did suffer cholestasis during pregnancy (a condition which causes the bodys billirubin levels to increase resulting in severe itching) i dont know if these increased levels are significant in any way but thaught it may ha
Avatar n tn My 5 yr old son wakes with red swollen eyes some mornings. The swelling subsides during the day, but turn into dry flaky red and itchy eyelids. Some days it is so bad that he can't open his eyes -on these days he ends up with what looks like bruising, or black eyes as the swelling subsides. The rash responds well to protopic, but I have no idea what he might be reacting to in the first place -I've tried eliminating milk, then eggs, wheat, nuts...
1985863 tn?1327764816 so I snapped and told him he has no idea what I am going through and he told me that I have no idea what he is going through with all off this and that it is emotional for him as well and that it bothers him that he with me cant just have a normal natural pregnancy. OMG. I dont even know what to say to him . . Feb 03, 2012 ..So.
Avatar n tn I had the same thing. For other symptoms and relatives having those other symptoms (they didn't have the wrinkled finger symptom), I told my doctor to check for a thyroid problem. I didn't know the fingers were related to that problem, but when I got on the thyroid medicine the wrinkles went away. Most doctors don't even know about that symptom as a sign to check the thyroid.
Avatar n tn my experience with birth control should have let me know pregnancy would be hell. Anyhow, made it through that and after suffering from migraines (diagnosed during pregnancy as complex migraines and was informed I should have never and should never again be on any kind of hormonal birth control) since the age of 8, they stopped after the births of each child.
Avatar n tn The blisters burst to leave expanding collarettes of scale and circular or oval, tender, peeled areas. These peeled areas lack a normal barrier function and may become red, dry and cracked. However, they are not generally itchy. The symptoms are aggravated by exposure to irritants including water, soap, detergents and solvents. Eventually normal skin forms, but frequently exfoliative keratolysis recurs within a few weeks.
Avatar n tn The itching is confined to the area at the top and sides of the large lips nearest the clitoris, but not INSIDE the lips, strictly on the outside skin of the large lips. Whether I shave my pubic hair or not doesn't affect the itching, it itches either way. When my pubic area is hot, the itching is intensified, as it is when the area is wet from swimming or bathing. Wearing a wet bathing suit can be extremely aggravating. Sometimes sexual foreplay increases the itching.
Avatar n tn However they haven't helped me none. The labia skin is thickened from the scratching, is very dry (white-like) and flaky (at times). So are my inner thighs at the crease yet they do not itch that often. There are no bumps but my skin is raised, and I don't know what it is. I thought about Lichen, but I do not see my vagina changing in that form, like the pictures that I have researched. Please Please help me figure out what other problems there might be.
Avatar n tn They will stay for varying lengths of time and then dry up and go away. Usually not for more than a couple of weeks. I may go for months and months and not get them and then all of a sudden they show up. I have been to various dermatologists over the years and they seem puzzled and never seem to know what they are.
Avatar n tn I'm 34 weeks pregnant and I'm hoping I can heal them before I go into labor for fear that my lips will rip into shreds during delivery. I suspect it could be irritation due to the intimate deoderant spray I've started using or maybe because I was recently on medication to cure poison ivy. I even thought for awhile that it was poison ivy. That would suck, huh? I'm trying a little of everything to help with the itch. No such luck yet. Did anyone else have swelling before the tears. I did.
Avatar n tn I too have just started having this problem, mine starts early evening and drives me crazy until i cant stay awake any more, during the day it doesn't itch nearly half as much. After the birth of my second son i suffered with severe itching but this was all over and turned out to be an over active Thyroid gland pireton tablets where the only thing that helped until i saw a consultant.
Avatar f tn However, they do need close supervision from your physician so that your response to the medications may be assessed Keep the area dry and clean always. Avoid tight underpants and wash using a mild cleanser only. For how long have you had this skin condition? Do you have similar skin conditions in other parts of the body?
Avatar n tn HI- I have had redness and irritation in my labia minora and it burns a little during urination but also not during too. I was wondering if anyone has had this before becuase i am starting to worry a bit. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Plenty of saline drains into every nook and cranny of your sinuses, and when you stand straight up, it drains out with most of the infected snot and pus. During the first treatment, you will see. After several treatments, your sinuses will resume their normal function, and you will be able to breathe freely through your nose. If you want to know what causes sinusitis, and why the saline solution works, go to Part II of this journal. PART I 1.
Avatar n tn I am 28 years old and have picked scabs on my scalp since I was about 12 years old. Normally I find little imperfections, possibly dandruff or dry scalp, and I pick at it until it becomes a scab. Once a scab develops, I find myself uncontrollably picking at it, so it usually never heals or takes an extremely long time or another scab to develop to stop. Right now, I have a total of six scabs that I have created on my scalp.
Avatar n tn Thinking back they definitely occur more in the summer, the winter ones I do recall have been when it's milder, I remember one during a really big snowfall a few years ago thus with milder temps. I've probably never had an attack when it's -20 Celsius and thus very dry outside. Saturday night we received a small dusting of snow in Montreal, (yes very early even by our standards) and when I awoke Sunday AM the sneezing started.
