Dry skin around lips

Common Questions and Answers about Dry skin around lips


Avatar f tn ve applied hydrocortisone cream which I had for my eczema to my lips. My lips were just dry but after applying every hour it's done wonders. I think it's the cure for dry lips. Hopefully it lasts till the morning.
Avatar f tn im 13 yrs old, girl and i got this rash around my lips that is really irritating me its really itchy and in most cases its red but if i dont put some lip balm on it , it will go red itchy flaky and dry. i got it ages ago thinking it would go away by applying lip balm to it but really the lip balm just stops it from going itchy and dry and its not helping me at all! and it looks like cuts like my skin has come off and its raw PLEASE HELP!
Avatar m tn anyway theres usually dead white or sometimes yellow-ish skin around it so i decide to rub it off and my skin becomes really red.after i rubbed it off i put on some neosporin,few of the redness went away but next day i realized my skin began to break and dry again a bit in the same place so i decide to do the same with the neosporin. 2 days later no progression of getting rid of it so today i tried some mosturiezer so far the results are the same.My question is how do i get rid of this?
Avatar n tn When I get out of the shower, my skin on my face and around my lips feels very tight and dry, especially if I don not moisturize. I use a very mild cleanser and moisturize every day after my morning shower and before bed at night. The thing that really bothers me is that every time after I eat a meal the inflamed border of my lips gets much redder and much more inflamed. This has happened for about 7-8 years now.
Avatar n tn When I was younger around 11 I use to lick my lips and soon it worsened a lot and turned into a messy infection of some sort. I went to dermatologist and was given bunch of different creams. It took awhile to clear up since my lips are very prone to being dry. I'm currently 21 and ever since then I've always had a red lining of my lips. Its especially visible on the lower lip, and gets redder after I eat or if it's irritated.
Avatar m tn I am having a problem with a rash that radiates downward from the sides of my lips. There are no blisters or bumps, it's just red. This area is also particularly dry with flaky skin, particularly close to the sides of the lips. Sweat and toothpaste cause the redness to increase significantly and produce pain. The toothpaste I'm using is very strong - Aquafresh Extreme Clean. From the time I began using it the area has become increasingly more irritated.
Avatar f tn I have eczema on the skin around my mouth and even on my lips. Nothing seems to work. I recently noticed that after eating anything with tomatoes, even ketchup, causes my eczema around my mouth to get worse than it already is. So I have eliminated it from my diet for almost a year now. I have even started using organic toothpaste without fluoride and sodium lauryl sulfate.
Avatar m tn It kind looks like I have dry skin around that area. I used to use neutrogena acne soap excessively all over my face which i think is the reason why that part of my skin is kinda burned. is there any kind of cream i can use so that my skin can go back to normal; to the normal skin color that the rest of my face has. all your advice is very much appreciated.
Avatar f tn I have found that I have terrible dry skin since getting pregnant! Over my face lips and hands, just can't get rid of it! Did anyone else have this? What did you do to clear it?
Avatar m tn I've had this horrible red rash around my mouth over a week now. It started as just a dry, flaky spot on the lower right side of my mouth but now I have it on both sides and it's itchy, flaky, dry, inflamed and red. There is no pus or anything like that. The corner on the left side of my mouth has a little "tear" because of the dryness. I've tried putting vaseline and other things on it but it doesn't seem to do much.
Avatar f tn Because these prescribed cream make my lips and skin around my mouth extremely dry, can I use chapstix or moisterizer? Would the white dots go away? What would be a correct diagnosis and an effective treatment for this kind of problem? Sorry for the long question and please give me some advises. Thanks a lot!!
Avatar f tn I apply chapstick/lip gloss literally all day; once the chapstick is getting dry, i apply more but even though my lips still get very very chapped. Now i have like some kind of rash around my lips. It's pretty sensitive when i touch it too but it doesnt itch, only occasionally. A skin specialist saw this in the summer and prescribed me a mild steroid to apply but it doesnt do anything. I've had this for a year in a half now so i just want it to go away. How can i cure this?
Avatar f tn WORST! my lips become sOoOo itchhhhhyy.. it swell than the first one.. then i have dry patches below my eyes.. :( but my rash reduce. so i went for the 3rd doctor... she gave me steroid to help on my swollen lips.. Uhuh.. im getting worse... my lips become so itchy.. everytime i apply medicated lip balm, my lips cracked and it smell.. yuck... i stop the med and went for the 4th doctor for allergy injection. she refuse me instead gave me levocetirizine dihydrochloride 5mg.. but i didnt eat it..
Avatar f tn Hey, so I've been struggling with this itchy dry skin patch around my lips for almost 2 years now and I still don't know exactly what it is. I can't really remember how it started but I didn't think much of it before. What I do know is that it has been very slowly getting better but it's still existent.
Avatar n tn Next week while eating something spicy her lips flared up and again she suffred from dry chapped lips.she started licking her lips but may be 10 times a day..so we applied butter on her lips ..which was salted. now her dry lips have been cured with no dryness or discomfort but she has devleoped perioral pigmentation ..which is dark circle around her lips..look like moustache Gp has prescribed 1% hydrocortisone..but pigmentation is still very apparent and very dark.
Avatar n tn Moisturizers should be reapplied liberally during the day. For dry lips, she should avoid licking the lips as saliva evaporates quickly resulting in them being drier than before. Ask her to drink plenty of water and take multivitamin supplements 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 then get a cream suitable for her age and put it on , and the lips should dry and let the old skin flake off , revealing new skin which she should leave alone , this should take around 10 - 12 days but make sure the lips dont get to wet, because that will just make them red and possible imflamted after time
Avatar f tn Lips dry due to needing more hydration. Olive oil works for adults. Would that be safe for a baby? Never looked it up...
Avatar f tn ve been getting this yellow liquid around my lips! it itches there are little non-colored bumps around them, AND the little red bumps on my upper lip. I feel like this might have something to do with my birthcontrol shot I got last week? SOMEONE PLEEASE HELP!!!!
Avatar f tn My boy friend has some dry skin on his penis, I gave him head with out a condom and my lips have oddly dry patches now. Is this an STD? If so, what is it? My health otherwise is fine as normal. Is there anything I should look out for or am I scaring myself?
Avatar m tn This layer though looks bad should be left as such so that the skin underneath it can get time to grow and cover the lips. If you peel this dry skin, the healing process starts all over again with dry skin on your lip. Dehydration is the commonest cause of dry cracked lips. Drink plenty of water and see. The other possibility is iron and Vit B deficiency. Along with multivitamin B (not a multivitamin which also has other vitamins) take an iron preparation and see.
