Lip sores sun

Common Questions and Answers about Lip sores sun


Avatar f tn In the summer when I am outside in the sun I get these horrible sores on my bottom lip, it is actually like one big sore that covers half my lip. This just started last year. None of the lip balms I've tried help. Could this be a form of skin cancer,I'm really scared? If not what is it and what can I do to prevent this other than staying out of the sun.

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 m tn Throughout the period below I had chapped lips and I pulled 2 pieces of loose skin from my lower lip on Sunday, before I ever felt ill, which caused a 2 small cracks/sores. These were located roughly where my upper and lower lip touch. They did become slightly raised with white, loose skin/scab around the outside but no blisters, and there was a slight red "ring" around the outside of the white. The scabs/sores did not really heal over the next days.
Avatar m tn we also spent two full days swimming in the ocean and laying on the beach. I am somewhat light skinned and that was my first real sun exposure that year. At the end of the last day there, at the hotel, I looked in the mirror and my lower lip had about 7 (size of a pin head) red spots that were oozing puss. I initially thought it was herpes. During, the next few weeks, I applied Abreva and Herpecin on my lips but it didn't clear up.
Avatar f tn Best to avoid contact with a lesion if for no other reason that prolonging the healing process. Otherwise, no, her outbreaks or shedding will not induce an outbreak. Note though that couples can get cold sores at similar times owing to similarities in stress levels, diet, sun exposure etc.

Avatar n tn Hello, To treat this scarring from cold sores on lips,keep on applying the vit E cream.Also use lip balm medications containing zinc oxide and sun screen lip balms before going out in sun. If the symptoms persist then laser treatment can be used.Pls consult a dermatologist for that. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
Avatar n tn If you experience frequent bouts, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medication to treat cold sores. Some causes of the symptoms you mention, could be lip biting, lip licking, Vit.B2 deficiency, smoking, overexposure to sun and ill fitting dentures. In extreme cases, this could be due to bacterial or fungal skin infection. You need to drink plenty of water daily – around 1.5 – 3 litres per day and eat a balanced diet.
Avatar f tn Around July of last year, I was with my boyfriend and other people at the shore and I got severely sunburned. as a result I ended up getting a blister on my lip. I assumed immediately it was a blister from the sun and it healed within a week or two but left a slightly reddish scar. About 3 days ago i noticed that i was getting red in the lips in the exact place i had the blister last year. and now there is a bump and small amounts of clear fluid in them.
Avatar n tn cold sores inside my top lip i have had them outside before but not inside what can i do they are very painfull my job consist of talking on the phone all day and that makes for a very painfull day
Avatar n tn There is currently no hard evidence to link lip biting to lip cancer. However, biting your lip can predispose you to oral sores and infections. Sometimes, lip biting is associated with some psychological conditions. You should try measures to prevent biting your lip.
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 n tn She has at least 2 blisters or sores on her bottom lip outside. She has 5-6 sores along the upper gum line and top lip and 4 on the bottom gum line and lip. Her tongue has swollen and turned white except for the spots that are raw and red. She is in constant pain and so far it has only gotten worse. She was on amooxil from sat to mon, we where told to use ambosol or oral gel. Also I made a homemde wash of maalox, benedril and water.
Avatar n tn I have these sores, they look like pimples, but don't behave like them. I've had pimples around my mouth when I was younger going through puberty, however, I usually would pop them and they'd go away within a day or two. These are red and slightly painful for a couple days, then eventually come to a tiny white head that I have to really squeeze to pop, it's a tiny bit of white, then clear fluid that comes out.
Avatar n tn i get cold sores in the winter time but i dont have herpes or any thing like that.i have been getting them since i was young. if i dont have that why do i get them. and how do i make it go away.
Avatar m tn Two months back he developed a red rash on his face when went out in sun. Since then whenever he goes out to sun he gets red rash and very dry lip for weeks. He is indoor only the last two months. We tried all kind of sun screen but nothing helps.
Avatar n tn It comes and goes in the same spot a couple of times a month. I do not get cold sores, although do get canker sores. This is NOT a cold sore, it is a small blister, it heals and it keeps coming back. I am concerned about lip cancer?
Avatar f tn do you have much sun damage? this could be actinic keratosis. they are from recurring sun damage typically acrued over years. if not there is always the slight chance it is a herpes type sore, but not likely. a dermatologist can check and dianose this. if you do have actinic keratosis they should be treated, typically with liquid nitrogen. unchecked they do have a higher risk of developing into squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma.
Avatar n tn I have two white spots on my my lip, no pain or irritation they just feel kind of like if the skin was dead in those two spots, one is a bit bigger than a pinhead and the other (o), thanks
Avatar n tn org/wiki/Chapped_lips Some causes of the symptoms you mention, could be lip biting, lip licking, Vit.B2 deficiency, smoking, overexposure to sun and ill fitting dentures. In extreme cases, this could be due to bacterial or fungal skin infection. You need to drink plenty of water daily – around 1.5 – 3 litres per day and eat a balanced diet. Do not keep your lips dry; apply lip balm which contains sunscreen – preferably a medicated one.
Avatar n tn You need to drink plenty of water and also keep your lips well moisturized. Apply a medicated lip balm with a sunscreen to avoid damage due to the sun. You could use neosporin ointment till you get to see your skin specialist. Eat a healthy diet and replace it with any deficient vitamins and minerals. Let us know if you have any other doubts and also about what the specialist advises. Hope this helps. Good luck.
1132574 tn?1271676066 Just curiuous to see if any of youhave experienced mouth sores w/ your Lyme? I had an ulcer on the bottom of my mouth and now have little sore on my cheek and lip... Annoying but not real painful.
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 f tn I am eating foods high in lysine. I stay out of the sun, and in fact, have just stopped leaving the house for fear of sun exposure. My questions: dosage of valacyclovir -- would it make sense to raise the dose? Or pay the way higher cost of Valtrex? is it possible the 400mg 3x day acyclovir was not a high enough dose? Would zovirax be a better idea? I have heard that these drugs don't work for everyone.
Avatar f tn Otherwise, it generally occurs only on my upper lip and lasts for one week. One time it also affected my lower lip. It also happened to my mom a few times and she first suspected a body lotion which she then stopped using. After a while it happened again and this time she suspected an older lipstick so she threw it away. It then happened again even after using new lipstick. However, it's worth noting that for both of us it seems to coincide with being out in the sun (and/or possibly wind).
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 Several years ago on a cruise I suffered from sun poisoning - first time ever and it was on the upper lip and was horrible. Could this be related? Please help!
