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 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 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 n tn Hi I have a very dry lips and very dry skin around my lips. This was caused due to the A/C constantly being on at work. It never went away no matter how much creams, ointment or petrolium gel I put on. However, after work during the evenings, once I put on the above substence on, my skin seemed to soften a little but during the night it harden up and get all cracky. I was never able to peel it off because it was soo deep into the skin...if u get what I am.
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!! ..
Avatar n tn I also am getting occasional dry skin on the bridge of my nose, and on top of everything my lips are getting dry and itchy too. I am allergic to lipsticks and lipgloss so I haven't worn them in over 6 years. However this time my lips started acting up for no reason. Does anyone else have this problem with their lips? I went to my dermatologist and he said there is nothing I can do about it. Steroid creams are too risky around the eye, and they also create wrinkles.
Avatar n tn It can be a little sticky and feel a little strange but it doesn't burn or irritate my eyelids and it's great for burns, rashes and abrasions, aswell as dry, cracked skin. Anyway, it seems to work for me. Well thats pretty much it. it's not a miracle cure, and it does take a few day for results to settle in. I know it won't be the solution to everyones problem, but i hope some of this information will be of use to some of you.

Avatar m 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 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 m tn I have done much reseach on healing ingredients and have added them to my recipes. I have had many return costumers that have had cracked and dry hands,feet and nail problems that have told me that my lotions, scrubs and creams are the only products that have worked for them. I do not have a website and only do email and phone orders. All of my products are made with my original recipes and are natural and fresh. I also have 150 different fragrances to choose from.
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 Typically the skin on the hands is too thick for the virus to easily penetrate to infect but if you have open cuts, chewed finger nails, dry cracked skin etc, it can get in there. Plus most adults already have hsv1 orally so they are protected quite a bit from getting it on their hands.
Avatar n tn I used to get it on my lips as well and it would turn into the worst dry cracked lips ever. I finally figured out it is a yeast allergy. I was making bread with my mom and I put my hands in the dough. They immediately began to itch and broke out in the bumps all over. After lengthy elimination diets I have discovered I am allergic to yeast and some wheat. When I cut them both out of my diet a laundry list of other problems went away as well.
Avatar n tn When I took this drug approximately 3 years ago, I had the common side effects (dry skin, dry lips, dry eyes, sore joints). I was 22 years old when I took the drug and I weighed 250 pounds. I took 50mg/day for 5 months. I was fine afterwards aside from a sore back. The Acne cleared up completely. Approximately 1 year after I stopped taking the drug, I started to feel horrible and had thoughts of suicide.
Avatar n tn Hi Karen, What your are discribing sounds like Eczema which may be that you are allegic to some home Products that you are using. If you are using Gloves of any kind, don't as it overheat your skin, burns the vitamin E and dries your skin to a point where your skin will loose it flexibility and its looks also it may make it itchy. For a chance, you must go to Totally Natural Body & Home Care Products and than, you will see what a change it will make in you life.
Avatar n tn No matter how they leave (self-induced popping, accidental popping, or healing on their own the skin that regrows cracks and is dry which is aging my hands faster then natural. IF you pop accidentally or purposely like me who can stop picking, THEY spread like wildfire.
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 a white coated tongue and it burns and feels almost like sandpaper. My lips too are dry and cracked constantly. My mouth is very dry. I have good and bad news. The good is that it could be only a yeast infection in your mouth called thrush. The bad news is that ive been treated for thrush 3 or 4 times in my 4 year quest to get rid of this. Your symptoms sound like thrush as does mine. My symptoms have alleviated in the past year or two but it is still slightly there.
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...
Avatar f tn I doubt that I'll be able to get milk thistle here - any other suggestions for calming natural remedies? Does lidocaine do more harm than good? I've been using it but have suspected that it has caused the eczema to spread. Is this possible?
Avatar n tn It feels as if a pin with electric waves of itching courses through the same specific area of the last three or four years. To boot, my heels (especially of the left foot) itch, are dry and cracked and the area near the groin also itches, just not as terribly.

Avatar n tn After having my first daughter, we bought a house in mexico. My skin would get really dry, cracked rashy, going from the cold of the state of washington to the warm and humidity of mexico. I got a rash under my watch one trip down there and was diagnosed with eczema, I got on a cream and the rash no longer appears, my wrist just really wrinkly and it seems to be when the weather changes, or when I'm stressed.
Avatar n tn Before reading this post, about a week ago, I read olive oil and garlic both are good natural healers/remedies of dry skin, ear infections, and other as well. I chopped up some fresh, raw garlic, mixed in olive oil and then applied to my hands, and a few drops in my ear (it's only in my right ear). This seemed to help with the pain and itching, and I thought the appearance of my hands was getting better. I applied it for a few days, using the same concoction I originally made.
Avatar n tn I've found the sweet almond oil is a wonderful method of increasing elasticity and making tearing less likely. There is also a natural antibacterial oil called Ozonol. If inserted into the vagina it can cure yeast infections. I hope at least some of this helps. Cheers.
288415 tn?1231634102 My ears still get dry and flakey. If I don't address the issue immediately, it will get worse. I was prescribed Elecon cream which helped with they dry, itchy and flaking. It still happens, mostly in the winter, though. They still haven't given me a reason why or anything, though.
