Lip injections healing

Common Questions and Answers about Lip injections healing


Avatar f tn I have recently discovered what seem to be a few small, almost tiny cyst like bumps under the skin in my lower lip. I can feel them when I run my tongue or fingers over them. What are these? Should I be worried. I have used chewing tobacco for only about the past six months.
Avatar n tn If you look at most of the ingredients in your lip glosses/chapsticks/or any other lip product that you are allergic to, you can almost pinpoint what is causing your bad reactions. It's different for everyone, so I can't provide an answer for you guys, but I can tell you that I am allergic to Chapstick, Carmex, MAC lipglasses/glosses soft lips, and other random free chapsticks that I had gotten as gifts, ie rosebud's.
Avatar f tn At the month mark is where I started noticing the biggest turning point. My lip had been healing at a faster rate than the other areas but it now seems like everything is on it's way to getting back to normal. When I press my lips together, I feel the bottom part almost like before and one little area there can feel a tiny bit of temperature. My chin and teeth have yet to fully feel temperature yet but I was told that's the last feeling to come back.
Avatar f tn Prilosec has few side effects. All respect to blessedmj, but I don't believe that an adjustment will help you, and these treatments are potentially very dangerous, with reports in the medical literature of serious neck fractures. I wouldn't do it.
Avatar n tn I have two queries, lately i've found that i had some little blister like bumps on my lower inside lip, and one or two on my inside cheeks. they come and go from time to time and at first i thought this could be blocked saliva glands. They appear to be filled with fluid, and are transparent or pink in color.
Avatar n tn about 1-2 days after that, my gums started swelling and i got a blister on the top, very center of my tongue, a day after that, raised bumps on my lip started to appear..only on my upper lip. the most i've had are about 3 bumps at a time. It looks as if my lip was swollen, even the the actual bumps were pus, but blood underneath them. and it's only on the upper right side of my lip. somewhat looking like bad collagen injections.
Avatar m tn A few months ago I had a blood blister removed from my lower lip after I had bitten it while eating and while the healing process was going on and while still swollen, about two weeks later, I bit it again while eating and a lump formed adjacent to the original incision. The surgeon tells me that if he removes this scar tissue it will only grow back again. It is difficult to chew without inadvertently biting it again and it hurts each time and is delaying the healing process.
Avatar n tn They range from V-Y mucosal advancement flaps, to separation of the upper lip muscles from the lower nose including possible resection of the nasal spine, to fat injections. Healing, of course will depend on the exact procedure performed and could range from only one week to much longer.
Avatar f tn But also noticed this blister like thing on the inside omy my lip. I am honestly freaking out because its a bump and you can notice it when I talk but its still on the inside of my lip. All my friends keep joking that its herpes but I have no clue how that could be seeming as I havent had sex in a really long time and the last time I kissed a girl was a few weeks ago but she didnt appear to have any sores, etc... Plus the blister itself is not painful at all..
Avatar m tn Had three injections to kill the pain and since I have developed a large black / purple bruise outside my mouth on my chin below the cavity (about 4 cm across and 6 cm down to the bottom of my jaw). It's not sore and the gum seems to be healing fairly well but is really ugly and bigger than I thought it should be. The dentist says it happens sometimes from the injection I had inside my bottom lip. Is that right?
Avatar m tn I have/had a mucocele on my lower lip for about 3 weeks, my family doctor today used a method I believe called "cauterize"(burning) to remove it. But right now it looks even worst! It looks absolutely terrible. I am in horror when I look at my lip where the mococele is and see a white and lightish black surrounding that area. Almost like a bomb went off. I've read that there was BETTER ways in removing this without having these hideous results. But it's only been 1 day so..
Avatar n tn I received 2 implants in the lower jaw (pos. 34 and 35) early yesterday. My lower lip and chin area are still numb (feels like when dental injections are just about to wear off - except they don't). The implantologist says the nerves are not damaged and can apparently see this on the X-rays. He says the feeling will disappear over several days and is caused by the local anaesthetic. Qu. Can the aneasthetic (or the way it was administered) really be the cause?
Avatar n tn It was slightly embedded and at an obscure angle as it was growing behind my other front teeth. I had 3 injections as I could still feel the pain, during the removal I could feel the ligaments tearing but the dentist ignored me and carried on. A bit of the root snapped off, but the dentist said chance of infection is low as long as i continue with vigirous cleaning (salt water, antibacterial mouth wash) My question is..
Avatar n tn This phenomenon occurs in roughly one out of 100 injections, when the needle passes directly through the nerve fiber, and is most common when anesthesia is required to numb the lower jaw. The nerves most commonly involved are the lingual nerve, which gives sensation to the tongue, and the sensory branch of the inferior alveolar nerve, which gives sensation to the lower teeth, jaw, gum and lip.
Avatar f tn The doctor wasn't sure if it were a wart but more a skin tag. She froze it off and its in the process of healing. I'll probably make an appointment with the dermatologist. Now I've read plenty about Fordyce spots and Sebaceous glands. I seem to have some fordyce going on as well. But what are these other little spots/bumps/nodules or whatever, near outer corner that appear when I stretch my mouth? They are white-ish.
673940 tn?1232415364 right 2years ago i had a very brutal bottom right tooth extraction ,i recieved 7 injections that i know of {1 of wich went through my cheek} my jaw bone was ground to a pulp and my mental nerve left exposed!, now i have tmj,and tn, i will be seeing a maxo surgeon next week and my ENT says that i have to have my mental nerve damaged{at last} and my jaw needs to be realigned,does this mean that they will break it first?
Avatar m tn Also, I found a great Pain Mgmt Dr who worked miracles with epidural steroid injections.. They dont last forever, but help you while your nerves are healing..If you have not had a nerve biopsy you should probably have one, but please note there are side efects from that, that no one told me about...I am still dealing with those effect .. The most important thing I have learned while going through this is dont just count on a Dr , or just one Dr...
Avatar n tn Hello, About 3 years ago I had a plastic surgeon do a punch type biopsy on the top of my nose (it was benign). One of the stitches had ripped during the healing process. The result was a dimple type scar on my nose. Ironically -I wanted to avoid scars like this which is wht I had it done by a plastic sugeon. The doctor told me that I would have to wait at least 2 years to determine how it would heal. Well, it has been over 2 years, and it has not healed very well.
192368 tn?1224207730 I had an MRI (of the spine only) that revealed Degenerative Disk Disease and a very small Hydromyelia. My pain worsened so I went to a pain mgmt. doctor for injections. including a Rhizotomy. Then a diskography, Cat scan, etc. -but its inoperable because of the multi-disk levels involved. Ive seen 3 neuro's about it so far. My other symptoms: I have night sweats, my eyes both have vitreous detachment, tremors, dizziness,vomiting.
Avatar n tn A month ago I developed an intense burning inside my nostrils and in my upper lip and gums. I saw a new ENT and he said that I probably had RSD. I saw a pain specialist yesterday and she put me on Lyrica, and agreed that I have RSD. I'm going to see her again next week. I've read that RSD is treatable if one goes after it early. Is there anything else that I should be doing? Additional medicine? Injections?
660300 tn?1224793961 I had my Wisdom Teeth taken out 2 weeks ago...ever since then my right lip and chin have been completely numb...I went back to the Oral Surgeon who wants to wait a month to see what happens, I have a follow up appointment in November right before Thanksgiving. Is there anything I can do to help? Based on common experience, how long does nerve damage "usually" take to heal? I feel like I am in the dark...I cannot stand it...
Avatar m tn In January of this year I had trigger point injections for pain in my upper back radiating down my arm. Unfortunately I had a reaction to the steroid which caused a butterfly type rash on my face (lasted 3-4 days) swelling in my upper lip which lasted 1-2 weeks and itching that was treated by using benedryl. Starting about a month ago, my hands became swollen and my joints very painful. They were stiff to the point of not being able to make a fist.
Avatar n tn The extraction site is healing nicely, although I'm beginning to suspect that there was nerve damage that I wasn't aware of or perhaps a mild reaction to the local as I'm feeling no pain in the extraction area... but in the neighboring teeth, and I feel a burning/tingly sensation in the areas where injection was given or the most numbness was felt (i.e. lip, chin, etc.
Avatar n tn My Surgery was on 1-24-08 - 3 weeks ago. I'm terrified of needles, so the corisone injections are OUT. I even had the dr. remove a "tag" from my neck while I was under because I'm too afraid to have him do it while awake! Is it too early to rub any vit. e on it yet? I'm beginning to feel as though the recovery is worse than the goiter.... I'm really having a hard time.
Avatar n tn Since that time I've had numbness in the right side of my nose and down through my right cheek, lip and front tooth. Do I have nerve damage and will it go away on it's own?
198904 tn?1209179123 It spontanously tried to heal, not being diagnoised and needed hyper baric oxygen therapy to help it heal ,which it did, as well as help with new bone healing. I have Post traumatic Trigeminal neuralgia caused by the malpractice of an oral surgeon who placed my implants(see reply to Bobbie333 on 4/04 for brief history} . This means I have "phantom pain" because of the degeneration of the damaged nerves .
281728 tn?1190433387 I have a migraine every day and if I'm lucky an injection of imitrex gives me minor relief for two hours. I was taking 12 injections, 12 pills and 6-8 samples of imitrex monthly and still running out. Then I was in the ER for Demerol or delotid with phenergen shots about once a week. It makes me mad. I'm relieved too and hopeful, but also mad. Wouldn't that make you mad?
Avatar n tn , cervical facet joint injections, epidurals, trigger points, Botox, and selective injections for nerve pain. -An understanding of the role of pain medication and when and when its no longer appropriate to use narcotics for neck pain relief. -Discussion of spine surgery such as laminectomy, cervical fusion, or disc replacement; your candidacy for neck surgery, with options and success rates and your doctors record with this and especially for cervical fusion.
Avatar n tn I also have thought that it could possibly be Fordyce, but the small patch of bumps on my lip are sooo tiny and are the same color as my lip that it doesn't seem to match the Fordyce symptoms. Like you, my lips are dry (they normally are not) and the small patch of very tiny bumps feels scaly when i run my tongue over it. It's really not noticeable to other people (my sister couldn't even see what I was talking about), but I would like to know what it is and what is causing it.
