745313 tn?1323145898 ) and it seems to help, problem is he's been getting a line of sore spots along his top lip. Not blistery sores like canker sores or fever blisters, just very small, VERY angry red spots that are very sore. Is this something anyone else has dealt with? And if so, HOW did you deal with it?
Avatar f tn I have a sore on my tongue that's been there awhile. The ear nose & throat doctor said it is irritation & hard to heal. I'm taking Lysine tablets 500 mg 3xs daily. Just started .I have seen L-Lysine ointment by basic organics. People use it for core sores & ulcers on the inside of lip. Would it be safe to dab a small amount on my tongue to help battle this condition faster. It is painful & very frustrating.
Avatar n tn How do I treat open sores on my bottom lip? My lip is raw and open like raw meat, I can't even eat it hurts so bad. I have put some cream on it from my doctor (Triamcinolon cream) but it burns so bad. I keep putting the cream on but they are not healing? What is it and what can I do?
Avatar f tn A week ago, I went and had my upper lip and eyebrows waxed, my eyebrows didn't break out, but my lip was covered in small, yellow , sores within 2 hours. I tried keeping them clean, and i thought that maybe i just have sensitive skin, but they started hurting, and the tissue around the inside of my lip is turning a dark color. i havent picked at them or any thing, i just don't know what they are. has anyone else expeirenced this? is it something serious, or am i just paranoid?
Avatar n tn For the past 10 years I have had really sensitive lips and have only been able to use one type of lip balm. As anything else - lip sticks of glosses give me little sores on my lips and cause them to puff up and get little scabs and peel contantly - i also get dry patches under my eyes and eye lids. When I visited a doctor they told me I may have an allergy to nail polish and an ingrediant in lip glosses/balms its also happens when I were nail polish.
Avatar n tn So, it first started in november where my lips started to feel extremely dry and chapped. I continued to use burts bees lip balm, and this particular lip gloss. a few days later, i ended up getting little bumps on the right corner of my upper lip, and a bump in the middle of my bottom lip. it was not noticeable to others unless i really pointed it out.
Avatar n tn well 3 days of no chapstick and constant lick lipping led to flaking of my lips which i bit at and created sores. all the sores healed after a week except for one. it will scab over, and i will be able to leave it alone for a max of 3 weeks while treating it with neosporin but the black scab never goes away and i pick it off and i can see the new skin underneath but it just keeps scabbing. is my lip never going to heal completely?
Avatar m tn I licked my lips to keep them moist, but they dried immediately and became sticky when pressed together. I started using lip balm, but this gave no relief. This condition has remained constant for the last 30 days. The lips remain dry and cracked, but there have been no blisters or sores--just dry, cracked lips which remain sticky when pressed together. Apparently that kid had some sort of lip infection and passed it on to me. Do the symptoms sound familiar, and is there a cure?
Avatar f tn I had a cold sore on my lip (dried) and I applied ointment with my fingers. About two hours later I changed a baby's diaper without washing my hands. I used baby wipes and then applied diaper rash cream. Could I have spread my cold sore to the baby?
Avatar f tn On Thursday I saw the dermatologist and he said it was likely a bad bacterial infection, gave me strong ointment and antibiotic Clindamycin HCL, the ointment Altabax retapamulin 1% and said if it didn't at least feel a little better in the morning go to the hospital. I entered the emergency room Friday morning in major pain, and with a disfigured face. I was admitted Friday evening and given an iv drip with 6 rounds of antibiotic.
469210 tn?1219191728 I have had mouth sores also. inside is one thing, outside I have found that berts bees has an ointment(lip saver) that clears up the corner cracks in about 24 hours.
561705 tn?1234549759 For a different approach, while on treatment I also got mouth sores and used Aloe Juice as a swish and swallow. It worked for the sores and also made my stomach feel better.
Avatar n tn can also be caused by taking the (retinoid) drug Isotretinoin (brand name Roaccutane). Applying protective paraffin-based ointment (such as Vaseline) or lip balms to the lips is normally very effective. Also take Vitamin B supplements. If nothing works you can have a biopsy done to find out the cause. ref: Some causes of the symptoms you mention, could be lip biting, lip licking, Vit.B2 deficiency, smoking, overexposure to sun and ill fitting dentures.
484160 tn?1343401521 I have been having sores in my nose almost constantly for months now. They are very painful. They will last for weeks, then heal for a week or so then they are back. What's up with that? Anone else?
Avatar f tn I am experierecing an irration on my upper lip.... Not to my knowleged have i ever had a cold sore... I went out into the heat for extreme amount of time. about a week later my lip began to tingle and then another week past and my lip began to swell fearing that i may be getting a cold sore i started taking abreva, well i got no breakage or sores or anything... but i keep putting it on the swellling went down..
Avatar n tn I have had a red bump above my lip for the last two weeks. At first I thought it was a zit, then I thought it was a cold sore and treated it with Abreva. After 4 or 5 days treating it, nothing happened. Now it looks like a cold sore may have been there (it's a little whitish and indented in the middle) but I don't think it ever came to a head. Is this just the memory of a cold sore and a resulting scar or something I should have checked out?
Avatar m tn I do also have the tiny barely visible forsyce's spots directly on my upper lip. I have never had cold sores or fever blisters before. This feels a little ridiculous, but I know that a powerful enough imagination and an overactive mind can sometimes only be put to rest by some sort of professional opinion. THank you for your time.
Avatar n tn I have a small red spot on my lower lip its just slightly darker then my lip and is raised a little bit it doesnt look like its a blister or a cold sore ive had one before and it went away and now i have one again ive been searching the interne and cant really find anything about it. ive seen cold sores and it doesnt look like any ive seen. it doesnt hurt doesnt bleed doesnt do anything but u can tell its there..
Avatar f tn Also take some oral antihistaminics like Benadryl and treat the lips with a mild Corticosteroid ointment. If the symptoms persist or you get sore blisters which scab over then the possibility of cold sores has to be ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn I have this strange patch in the middle of my bottom lip, it feels really dry and strange. It has no pigment and you can’t see it on my lips. I only got it a couple days ago and about 5 days ago I got this new Carmex lip balm and it was so great it made my lips really smooth and felt great, then it started making my lips burn out if the blue! That’s when I got the patch so I’ve avoided the carmex and used Lucas paw paw ointment which I’ve never had problems with but this won’t go away!
Avatar m tn Hello, The lip discoloration after cold sores is a temporary discoloration and usually goes away in weeks to months. It is important to prevent more occurrences of cold sores during this time. If the discoloration persists then laser treatment can be thought of. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
Avatar n tn Everything I've read about cold sores or herpes on the lip sounds extremely painful. I don't have any of those symptoms.... its all very strange.
Avatar n tn Canker sores... dang they hurt. Its like the "last straw", I feel like **** and now my face hurts... I have four in my lower lip today, plus I wear a night guard that irritates them. Desperate times call for desparate measures. So today, I pulled my lip open, and have spread a small amount of neosporin plus pain relief all over the inside of bottom lip several times.
Avatar n tn -) After about a month with it healing only slightly from time to time (and then immediately come back in full force) I found the CVS brand equivalent of Blistex (of which all of their products I had tried) - just called Medicated Lip Ointment and shaped exactly like Blistex in a red box. It worked wonders! Of all the things to trip across a 2 dollar bottle of relief! I was so excited. Anyways the reason I am posting it now a year later is that this same thing just happened to me two nights ago.
Avatar f tn I just posted this same thing on another thread. I used Vagisil on my lip corners when they got those sores. Sounds gross, but worked really well for me. Good luck.
1514444 tn?1290446269 I regularly get a small painful whitehead on my lips. I can feel them coming on, like a tingling in my lip, and then a very painful whitehead appears that feels like it is holding a lot of pressure that needs to be released. It is just one spot and not blistery like a cold sore. I do get cold sores inside my nose and take Valtrex because they happen so often. Because I take Valtrex on a daily basis which prevents my nose breakouts, I do not think this is herpes.
Avatar n tn hi, i tried finding an answer to my question, but all of the questions that deal with similar symptoms are for the "upper lip". However, i came across a small tiny white bump on my lower lip (not a whitehead), if i run my finger over it, i can feel its a tiny bump. Im not sexually active for a few months now ( :( ) . I do smoke, but maybe a pack a week; but i just noticed this tiny bump after sharing a blunt with someone i really dont know...
469210 tn?1219191728 Hi guys, Does anyone else have these painful mouth sores? I have like blisters all over the front 1/3 of my tongue, both sides of my mouth are cracked, and inside my bottom lip is raw with a couple sores. It is SOOOO painful!!!!!! I went to the drugstore and bought some stuff and it is helping a little, but I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else.
Avatar n tn About 6 months before my lips started bothering me, she had developed a crusty scab in the middle of her lower lip and one above her upper lip. We made out once before I noticed it, but didn't kiss her again until it was fully healed. Her scabs did not reappear any other time while we dated (~4 months). Is it possible that my inner lip rash developed from kissing her and didn't show any symptoms for 6 months?
