Common Questions and Answers about Lip sores remedies


Avatar m tn As far as I know I have always had cold sores on my lip. Are ALL cold sores HSV or are there different kinds of cold sores? If HSV why has my long term partner never contracted through kissing. We don't do oral sex. Is this easier to catch from oral cold sores?
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 f tn The nurse who red me my results told me I tested positive for cold sores but not herpes? So does this mean I tested positive for hsv1 but not hsv2? The nurse didn't really seem to concerned and didn't provide any medication to help contain the virus or anything like that, so I'm concerned on how serious this is. I haven't been sexually active for about a month and the last unprotected exposer I had was the 26th of April and have been worried about contracting herpes ever since.
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 How do you tell the difference between HSV 1 and a cracked lip? Is a bump or dry spot on the lip definitely a cold sore? These are some things I'd like to know. Thank you.

Avatar m tn its the skin that not the shade of my lip it the normal skin like on my cheeks that healed over it any natural remedies/peel like aloe lemon vitamin e I need to get my lips natural shade back
Avatar f tn The weird thing is I still have these small bumps on my upper lip and they won't go away. They're really tiny bumps just covering my upper lip. I really have no idea what they can be any help will be appreciated. Is it a possibility it is in fact herpes?
Avatar n tn I thought I had something SERIOUSLY wrong with me because I have these like bumpies (not like sores... like bumpy skin) near the bottom of my vagina.. more on one side.... the OB said he saw nothing out of the ordinary and we are just built different. I also have big "lips". Only one of my ex's have commented on it and he thought it was pretty cool. I'm always self concious about how "open" I am. In pics and stuff you usually see these outer lips covering...
Avatar n tn So I am a HUGE worry wart, & I'm probably just over analyzing what's going on here. Anyways, about 9 days ago I had what felt like a numbness or tingling on 2 places on my lip, & in one area I felt a bump under the skin on my lip. I iced both areas, & looked up "tingling lip" wondering what could be causing it & I saw that it could POSSIBLY be the first symptoms of a oral herpes outbreak.
Avatar f tn It is right at the base of my gums where the inside if my lip meets, and there is actually a few of them right there on the gum and inside lip. I'm no stranger to canker sores but this one is actually causing my upper lip and the bottom of my nose to swell and the entire area is extremely painful. Everything I've read has said that canker sores would not cause that to happen but I've had it before where the canker sore has been in the same spot and caused the same reaction.
Avatar n tn They could also be moth sores caused by hot and spicy food. Most sores of either variety will disappear in 10-14 days. Some may persist. There are some remedies for both: Gargle with cool water, avoid hot beverages and foods, spicy and salty foods, take pain relievers like acetaminophen or take a multivitamin tablet. However it is difficult to diagnose without examining. So please consult your doctor. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else.
Avatar n tn Hi, Cold sores (fever blisters) are small red blisters that usually appear on the lips and outer edges of the mouth. They usually appear after colds, fevers, exposure to the sun, stress and other conditions which cause the immunity of the body to dip. They are usually caused by herpes virus which are latent in the body and can flare up when the immune levels of the body get disrupted. Most cold sores will clear up on their own in a week to ten days time.
Avatar f tn I never used medication for this virus, only home remedies for hsv2....what home remedies can I use for the scab that hsv1 eave on my lip? It's quite embarrassing and I want to clear it up asap.. should I change tooth brushes after this OB? thanks in advance u guys!
Avatar m tn I have been plagued with cold sores since I was about five. At a rate of about 1-2 every 2 months, on bad seasons, and about 1 every 2 months on good streaks. I have tried all the "home remedies" you could imagine, and it seems that they more so irritate my cold sores rather then cure or heal them. I have been using a 5% docosanol lip balm that I found online.
Avatar m tn Need a little help here with home remedies, if possible; or at least before advancing to a gp. I may have been a little too intimate with a friend? Inflamed area under my tongue looks a little odd. Area really not tender until eating or trying to figure out it's texture by touching it. The inflamed area does actually produce a clear liquid if squeezed. In addition, lower lip broke out with something different for me.
1582835 tn?1296615522 The next day my lips started to itch and then on from there my top lip turned a completely different color and my lips started to darken around the edges of my bottom lip. Before all of this i had nice pretty pink lips that went with my skin. My dermatologists have prescribed me with all types of different medicines like hyrocostine and some others that I cant remember. But nothing seems to be working at all.
Avatar m tn Yes, my advice is not to worry about oral cancer at all. 6 I was told that ulcers/canker sores are not a sign of herpes - I have had cold sores before in past. Correct? Cold sores are most often due to HSV-1. Canker sores are unrelated. I hope these comments are helpful. I urge you not to worry about the sore on your lip unless it is present without healing for at least a3 weeks or a month.
Avatar n tn im 23 and ive been getting fever sores since i was around 8 i'd say and they have never left a scar...but last winter i had the flu two times in one month and towards the end of the 2nd time i had it, a fever sore started forming above my lip...the sore took almost a month to go away completely and it left a red scar there and it kinda feels like i have nerve damage,...
Avatar n tn in about 2 weeks I have not developed any other symptoms and no other sores have been present previously. current sores do not get worse and do not go away. there is only 1 MAYBE 2 instances I can think of where I could have even remotely been exposed to an infection. both were due to protected sex but a broken condom and with someone I'm not in contact with anymore. Last contact was about a year ago and all successive partners I'm 99% sure they are clean. (can't be 100% ever).
Avatar f tn i researched home remedies and natural treatments. i applied a compress of ACV. ( apple cider vinegar) i didnt realize it then but it made it way worse! and trust me i whole heartedly believe in these remedies. ill touch base on this again in a bit.... i went back to the doc in a box. the immediately said "HERPES!" apparently my shingles blood work came back negative. gee thanks doc for filling my weak immune system full of crap before finding that out. ammature hour. i freaked out.
Avatar n tn It did not turn into bumps or puss or a sore, it went away in 3 days. It was pink in color and itched at times. I put many home remedies on it like apple cider vinegar, oregano oil so not sure if that killed whatever it was or it just disappeared. In the meantime my daughter has a small red bump on her lip. during the two or 3 weeks since I was with that person I kissed my daughter she is 2. I kiss my 9,7,2, and 1 year old all the time. short pecks near the cheek or mouth.
Avatar f tn This time, I also awoke one morning to swollen lips with raised red spots/sores. My lips were weeping, but not from the sores or spots themselves. The next day they went away after various home remedies. My doctor said it looked like a bacterial infection, as I wemt to him when the corners of my mouth had produced a yellowish crust that could be removed easily with warm water. I applied diluted trea tree oil, witchhazel and l-lysine. I also to multi-vitammins, Bcomplex .
Avatar n tn Have a fever blister on my lip and would like to know if I can use Fucidin cream on it. It is an antibiotic cream.
Avatar m tn In actinic cheilitis, there is thickening whitish discoloration of the lip at the border of the lip and skin. Secondly,it can be due to atopic dermatitis or eczema("Atopic" refers to a group of diseases where there is often an inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever). Cheilitis(Inflammation of the skin on and around the lips)is often seen in atopic dermatitis. Diagnosed by blood test like RAST.
Avatar n tn Do you treat your cold sores at all? The herpes antivirals work best for cold sores if you start them in the cold sore doses at the very first sign that one might be starting. if you wait for an obvious cold sore, their efficacy is greatly reduced. I typically do not recommend any of the products advertised in google ads here except for the 3 herpes antivirals we talk about all the time - acyclovir, valtrex and famvir.
Avatar m tn how often do you get cold sores? if it's more than 1-2 times a year, talk to your provider about trying daily suppressive therapy to help reduce them. you also can keep a prescription for antivirals on hand to start at the very first sign of a cold sore about to start too to ward off a full blown cold sore or at least keep it from lingering so long. do you put on a good spf lip balm before going outside in the sun?
Avatar f tn Any reason to be concerned? Any reason why I might continue getting the mouth sores? The sore on the upper gum and lip left a scar with 3 whitish bumps. Need to confirm once and for all. Thanks once again for your input!
