How to heal dry cracked lips naturally

Common Questions and Answers about How to heal dry cracked lips naturally


Avatar n tn I have the same problem! Dry, cracked skin that I have to peel off of my upper eyelids. It comes in waves. It might be bad for a week and go away for a month, or vice versa. It seems to be worse when the weather is hot or dry, but sometimes that makes no difference. And sometimes it cracks so badly it bleeds, like chapped lips. I went to my doctor and he said that I had a "skin condition." I'd never wanted to beat someone so badly.
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 Also, I talked with a herbologist (she is VERY knowledgable on how to heal things naturally) and she said to open up an acidophilus capsule and put the white powder right inside your mouth (when I had the thrush), and right on your vagina (when you have a yeast infection) because it puts the "good bacteria" right at the source, and heals things ALOT faster. Try works!!
Avatar n tn I have been having problems with very dry lips 2 yrs now. I went to the dermatologist and she said i have to stop licking my lips because saliva is very acidic!!!! First thing she asked me was, what i am using, at that time i was using blistex, chap stick, burt bees & soft lips. Right away she told me to throw all away and use 100% pure petroleum jelly and only use hypoallergenic lipsticks &lipgloss!! :( no more MAC!!:((( she said Almay is hypoallergenic.
162948 tn?1205256292 I know your period is the lining in your uterus which the mirena keeps it thin so obviously keeps mine to nothing since i dont bleed. I am really concerned now as to how long it is going to take me to concieve. I had a friend who got hers pulled out and got pregnant the next day. Now I really wonder when I should get it taken out. Now or when hes here so we can have sex right away.
Avatar n tn The yeast infection is gone now, but I am still swollen and still have slight burning every now and then, not so much painful as it is annoying, and it has been 5 days since I used this product! It's going down a bit, but it seems to be taking its time..anyone know how I might be able to speed the healing process?? Next time I'll just get the Diflucan and avoid all of this!
Avatar f tn It breaks my heart to hear that because i know how much we all want this to happen for us! and how much love fear and tears we put into this long process! Stay strong it could still be good news!! If you need to talk i am here for you!!!
Avatar n tn So anyways I had to go to the hospital 2 days ago,they did give me pain medication because my head has a bad pain in it the whole back I can't even touch it and the pain is getting worse sitting here typing but I want to try and finish, the hospital also got me in today to see a doctor (Neurology) he checked me over asked me about how I was feeling.
Avatar m tn Each time anything remotely felt wrong with my body or if she said she didn't feel good I instantly thought that I had this virus and passed it on to her. I am normally of strong and sound mind but this almost cracked me because it was a non stop thought and my mind wouldn't slow down. My second encounter had to do with an activity known as frottage, which in my opinion is when someone rubs their bare penis against a bare vagina.
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 m tn I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.

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 At first it hurt to even sit but the pain is now gone and I'm just wondering how long it's going to take to heal, and when I have sex with my bf again am I just going to rip again? This is frustrating because he's leaving wednesday for military training and will be gone for a week. I was hoping to get together tuesday before he left but now i don't see how that's possible due to my tear. I don't know what to do!
Avatar m tn These substances also make you cough and sneeze in order to expel the viruses, which helps you get rid of them, and also helps the virus to spread to other humans.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
748543 tn?1463449675 One of the most difficult concepts to get across to my TMD patients and other doctors is the connectivity of the Jaw and the Neck. In fact, it is my strong belief that TMD/TMJ should really be classified as a Craniocervical Disease and hence fall under the umbrella of medical coverage rather than treated strictly as a dental problem. To the Neuromuscular-minded dentist, "Occlusion" is an extension of general Postural Consideration.
544292 tn?1268886268 I used to wake up happy all the time, before the Tramadol. Waking up happy is good. Then I tried to move. I had to use my hands and arms to get up out of bed. My body has been pushed as far as it will go. So after trying all my best tricks (aminos, coffee, food, vitamins, water) I finally stopped the struggle and called in sick for work. Tomorrow will be a busier day anyhow.
429155 tn?1205676864 Because I thought the worst was over....and it isn't, at least for me. I know how horrible the emotions are. To hear and see a grown man to his knees tells me I'm not just overreacting as a crazy woman....this is are not alone. Oh dear!!!! I hope I miss that bit, just when things seem to be getting better.
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 f tn I hope your anxiety has improved by now. Maybe my experience will help you. Three years ago I was treated for a tooth infection. It was quite painful. I had to wait almost two weeks for treatment! So I was given a course of amoxicillin. A Two days into that prescription, I began having SEVERE anxiety! I had trouble with generalized anxiety o disorder in my teens and early 20s, but I got over them by around my 30s, basically by just surviving them and living life.
Avatar n tn That problem Eucerin or any fragrance-free, potent, extreme dry skin or itch relief lotion helps. You do have to be diligent in applying often and it helps to apply RIGHT out of the shower so that your body does not dry out and absorbs the moisture while your pores are still open. Along with that I have psoriasis (mild) on my scalp which results in scabbing, itching, and heavy build-up. This can be treated with some relief with a tar based or clarifying build-up remover shampoo.
Avatar n tn I am trying to figure out how to post an answer to this issue. Believe it or not, some itchy eyelids are caused by a mite called a demodex. By removing one lash and testing it by looking under a microscope, proper treatment can assist you in possibly eliminating your problem. I didn't read this idea on any of the posts. hope this goes through.

Avatar n tn ) but I am trying to find out how to get rid of them.. which i know everyone is trying to understand. I have one thats slightly bleeding above my clitoris which is causing ALOT of pain and others that are stinging when i urinate. I dont have much in my home to work with but i was wondering what could be used to start clearing it up? I have basics (bactine, polysporin etc..) but i dont know what is safe to use or what would make it worse?
Avatar f tn These breakouts are a nightmare and take forever to heal. Mine never heal until all pieces of the plugs are removed and by then I have dug so deep into my face to get them out till I am embarrassed to go out in public. I have searched the web till my fingers were numb trying to find an answer and solution and I was so relieved to see your post. I do not know if stomach ulcers can cause this but I have noticed both flaring up simultaneously.
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.
