Avatar m tn I am now 27 and have been very frequent cracking right down the middle, lips dry up fairly easily and quite randomly and then all it takes is a wide smile and I have a large crack in the middle, takes days to heels. Is there some prescription cream that can work, over the counter stuff is just not doing it.
Avatar f tn This is for my mother. She has such severe dry deep cracked feet, that they swell to a degree she is often in a wheel chair for extended periods of time. The pain is unbearable for her. SHe has seen several dermatologists and an immunologist. Has been tested for Lupus and other auto immune disorders all were negative. The dr's give her creams that don't help for more than a few days then they flair up again worse than time before. Last night her feet swelled to more than twice the normal size.

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!!!
1273473 tn?1270779440 I have had the mouth sores, very dry skin, and dry eyes. I told my friend about the mouth sores. She had a severe brain injury many years ago and told me that during recovery she would get sores from thrush which I never had before, but heard the sores were like that. She told me the dr had her gargle with water and white vinegar (just a little). The idea was to change the ph of the mouth.
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.
1610851 tn?1298234476 In my 26 years of life, I have never had dry skin; never had so much as chapped lips. This winter, I noted a small patch on my knuckle that looked pink, almost like I had punched something or hit the back of my hand on something and scarred it. Then that patch started getting bigger and itching and it would crack open and bleed...probably from my scratching it. Then, I started noticing dry skin flaking off from under a couple of my finger nails, just at the tips of my fingers.
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......
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 f tn My lips are Soooo dry this pregnancy. I do a lip scrub equal parts sugar and coconut oil (or olive oil) and scrub for 6 minutes Or so gently. Then I put a little more oil/ a thin layer on as chap stick after I wash off the scrub then I use Burt's bees chap stick throughout the day. It's helped Soooo much. I do it once a week or every 3 days depending how dry/cracked/peeling they are.
Avatar f tn Eczema of the lips is more common when the lips are dry, so fall and winter are more likely seasons. Eczema of the lip area is common in those who have sensitive, dry skin that is prone to allergies or have a history of eczema or asthma. This rash is exacerbated by several things: 1. any strongly flavored or alcohol-based mouth care product, like mouthwashes with alcohol or strong mint or cinnamon flavors 2. chewing gum with strong flavors 3. lip balms, for two reasons a.

Avatar n tn After 2 years of living in New Mexico my lips would dry out and hurt no matter how much lip balm I put on. The problem just got worse and worse. I moved to boston this past January, and by then I had progressed to my lips being red, swollen and painful. I've seen dermatologists, immunologists and boston's top specialist on oral mucosal diseases. My lips started improving when I simply stopped putting anyting on them, which was about 2 months ago.
Avatar n tn What is a 58 year old, professional/married woman, (otherwise healthy) doing up at 4:00 am searching the internet for a solution to a medical problem that she has been to a doctor three time over the past month? Desperate...I woke up with my lips burning. On April 24th, I volunteered at a local art event which was held in a factory. My station was close to furnaces and it was hot and the next day my lips were chapped.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a 7 year old son and he has been having a tough time for the past 3 years with dry and cracked, sores and blisters. It all started when he went to Arizona in 2007 in the hot weather. Then he went to India and stayed for one year where the conditions are worsen. It's been 3 years and his lips are getting better , but getting worse. I can send the pictures any dermatologist docter, any help is much appreciated.
Avatar n tn About a year ago I remember the knuckles on my index and middle finger on my right hand were very dry and cracked. I kept applying moisturiser and eventually the problem started to go away, but it still doesn't seem like it has completely disspapeard: Although I wouldn't decribe the knuckles as 'dry' anymore, they still have a dry almost 'wrinkled' appearence that my other knuckles don't have. I have moisturised CONSTANTLY since I noticed this but it doesn't really seem to make any difference.

Avatar f tn However, after stopping using the cream, my lips were cracked and dry and tingling. I tried different lip balms, such as Carmex and Burt's Bee, to heal them, but then the burning and itchiness came back! I then start taking lypsine and applying the zovirax cream. They seemed to be working and now I don't feel the burning and itchy sense,just occasional tingle, but my lips are very very dry and cracked. Should I use the lip balms again?

Avatar n tn I HAVE LIVED WITH PROBLEM CRACKED RED DRY LIPS SINCE CHILDHOOD HOWEVER BECAUSE OF POOR MEDICAL SERVICES IN MY COUNTRY, I HAVE NEVER SOUGHT TREATMENT UNTILL NOW. WHEN I WAS STILL YOUNG AT ABOUT 18 YEARS OF AGE, MY LIPS WOULD CRACK AND EVEN BLEED WITH ALOT OF PAIN IN THE CRACKS. AS I GREW UP, THIS HARD CRACKING REDUCED BECAUSE I COULD CHEW THEM ALMOST ALL THE TIME. AT THE MOMMENT MY LIPS ARE RED WITH SCAR LIKE SPOTS ON THE LOWER LIP THAT MAKES ME VERY UNCONRFOTABLE TO EVEN SPEAK TO PEOPLE.
Avatar m tn If you ever have had cracked corners on your mouth or dry, chapped, rashy lips, read this immediately. I used Crest’s Cinnamon Whitening Expressions toothpaste. After I would use it, I noticed that the corners of my mouth would be red and inflamed. I would wake up the next morning and it would be fine… well one day I woke up the next morning and it was still red. i eat pretty healthy, exercise, take vitamins and herbal suppliments, and drink a lot of water, and I mean a lot!
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.
