Lip sores that don't heal

Common Questions and Answers about Lip sores that don't heal


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 I also had a cut on the top lip that would not heal until I got off treatment. Be careful with certain medicines for Herpes. They can affect the liver. Read and ask your doctor...
Avatar m tn It's very distinct, it looks like a bunch of red poky dots , different that how it looks on the lip. There are poky dots that can appear on the soft palate , that can look exactly like herpetic lesions, if they don't hurt, that's not herpes, it's from a non bacterial or viral origin , and I am not going to tell Mammo what it is!
Avatar n tn I believe it to be oral lichen planus as Ive had it intermittantly before TX.Since starting peg-intron/riba combo it is worse and non-stop.
Avatar n tn They are only slightly sore to the touch, and mostly I don't even think about them. They have not become open sores at any time, but never seem to heal right up. I would like to know what this condition might be, whether it is transmissable, and how I might be able to treat these annoying patches successfully.

Veterinary supervision is required because this is considered a pre-cancerous condition, and Early vigorous treatment is required. Sometimes this is an indication of a compromised immune system and your cat should be tested for the Leukemia virus. Don't worry though this is not a definitive sign of the virus , but to be safe the test should be preformed.
Avatar n tn I've been using Abreva and lip balm together, to keep my lips moist. Possible cold sores? Just dry lips? Would Abreva help to heal sore lips in general, or just cold sores? What else could these sores and circular dry patches be, besides cold sores? V. confused. Will be quite sad if they are cold sores. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Hi, First of all I'm only 13, and I'm extremely concerned (perhaps too paranoid) that I might have herpes. Unfortunately I don't have pictures so you'll have to bear with my bad descriptions. It started last Thursday (so 12/12) I noticed a red, sore kind of thing near the right corner of my lip (it was right after dinner, so maybe triggered by foods?) that kind of irritated, and also hurt when I moved my mouth. It looked like a pimple or maybe a cluster of pimples (?) surrounded by red.
Avatar f tn I know them to be cold sores, and I usually use abreva, or anything that i can find that will work to clear it up. it ALWAYS starts out as a little tingle one night or one morning, etc. and shortly thereafter, usually by the end of the day, a little blister type sore begins to form and they usually grow to be pretty big and get really ugly when they scab over. I am just EXTRA careful with my boyfriend when it comes to kissing, etc. when I do have my cold sore outbreak.
Avatar f tn I have cut that out of my diet and now I don't get mouth canker sores and I haven't had one down there in a year and a half! I think that either it's a virus or just my body's reaction to acidic things.
484160 tn?1343401521 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 n tn I've had scarring from prior breakouts, but never a blister that doesn't disappear on my lip. I'm at a loss as to what my options are to make the blister "scar" disappear. Any attempted coverage(lipstick) does not hide the blister. Any information and ideas on treatment would be appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I have been trying to get back into a relationship with my previous girlfriend and told her last night that I tested positive for cold sores. She lives states away and we haven't had any sexual contact for a few months but I plan on seeing her this weekend. She still decided to see me which I'm grateful for but I just don't want to pass anything to her if anything happens and need to know what to do to keep it with just me. Also when will the lesions/cold sores appear?
1132574 tn?1271676066 Dentist said he thinks all my mouth things are un-related- that the lip thing is b/c I bit it (and I do recall doing that), and that in my cheek it has something to do with the gland, he said it's of no concern and then the cyst. But I find it odd to have them all at the same time... After doing some googling I've found that mouth sores have been assoc'd w/ Lyme. I also found thru googling that mouth sores can be diet related. I saw mention of low protein.
Avatar n tn I didn't notice any sores or anything, but she did have a little razor stubble that I felt against my lips and skin. Within a week after the encounter, I noticed that I had been chewing a little on my lower lip and there was an indented area with peeling (about 1/4" wide). Just below the lip line in this area was a small red discoloration.
Avatar m tn and it hasn't gotten bigger and I haven't noticed any tingling...which I normally do with cold sores. But i'm now worried that I may have infected my partner with genital herpes and possibly myself because we had sex. I'm not really sure what to do. I'm not dating him...we're only good friends who sometimes sleep together. We usually always use protection...but didn't this one time. What are the possibilities that I may have infected him? What should I say?
Avatar f tn And since wearing braces it has been difficult for me to want to kiss another person because these braces are causing canker sores and leaving cuts and marks on my inner and side lips. I'm at the point where if i were to stretch my bottom lip, the cuts/marks from the braces appear to be open in a way like deep cuts. I'm using peroxide and oraljel to clean my mouth out but doesn't seem to heal as quickly.
Avatar m tn Hello, For a little over 3 weeks now Ihave had what looked like a red mark about a half inch away from my right lip. I did not think much of it at first. It looks like the skin is just red. It is very small, maybe 1 cm round. I can see the hair follicles inside of it and they are still normal color. In the last two days I have noticed that it is slightly raised. It does not hurt, It does not burn, It does not itch. When I press on it, the skin turns white, but the center appears to be brownish.
Avatar n tn I have been getting these things called canker sores in the mouth. They are on the gums and one was on the lip, but the one on the lips seemed to heal in a little less than 2 weeks. I now got one on the inside cheek. could these be a canker sore or a fever blister. i have read alot of information, but i can't determine, maybe you could clear this up for me.
Avatar n tn The Aquaphor is good enough so that can be your new lip balm but I don't use it like that. I am still able to use some glosses. As for what I can use...I haven't found anything in sephora that works. I've brought the cheap and expensive stuff and nothing is helpful. I recently started using Smooth Minerals and havent had any problems at all. I'm not quite sure about Nivea Milk and Honey (in the trial stages!). Not all chapsticks can be used either.
Avatar n tn LOL, I started to watch that too... had to take a nap. Dyce, hate to say this, but after talking this morning.... your gonna have to start watching..... ROCKSTAR: SUPERNOVA.. tues and wed, and you don't have to focus or think... its like a concert... sit and watch... metalface girl will win, troublesome skunkboy will be second... oooppps gave away the farm too soon... but I was always that way... but MOM, I'VE GOT PLENTY OF MILK!!! Goof... don't clap, just throw money!!!
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 Not as red but it never got worse never really a sore with weeping I read you don't get sores on the soft tissue of your mouth only the gums and hard palate. But the redness is right along where the lip grades into the soft tissue of the mouth, while the clear bumps are well into the inside of my upper lip. So perhaps I overreacted and thought I was having an outbreak and its something different.
Avatar n tn It doesnt hurt or anything like that but I cant remember the last time I had a pimple that took this long to heal and scabbed this way. The scab doesnt appears its ready to fall off yet as Ive picked at it a little and there are no signs that its ready to come off. My concern now is that this could be something else, along the lines of possibly herpes or something? Its def not as bad as the pictures of herpes Ive viewed online but at the same time, it could be from other posts Ive read.
Avatar n tn The blisters break, leaving tender ulcers (sores) that may take two to four weeks to heal the first time they occur. Herpes simplex is most easily transmitted by direct contact with a lesion or the body fluid of an infected individual. Transmission may also occur through skin-to-skin contact during periods of asymptomatic shedding. The only way of ruling it out is by getting yourself tested for herpes.
Avatar f tn because I was in so much pain. I had 2 small ITCHY sores near my clitoris and 4 pimple-like sores on my labia majora. So I go and he tells me it's herpes. They took blood and swabs and all that and told me to call 4 days later for the results but he was almost positive thats what it was. Even gave me the script for Ayclovir which I took and it seemed to go away before I had to call him. So I called and he tells me I have bacterial vaginitis and a UTI but NO HERPES.
558059 tn?1288554544 Hi Just by chance I started smearing Petroleum jelly on my lip ..AND after 2 weeks the sore place on my lip has healed... Don't know in the long term if this is the answer. But at the moment it's working fine!
Avatar f tn Could it just be an A-typical form of cold sores? Also, i happen to have one of those cuts that may be a cold sore on my bottom lip right now, I am guessing that it's a cold sore since I'm on day 3 and it's not fully healed.
Avatar m tn On the 8th days after the exposure I had my first cold sore outbreak over my upper lip, however a couple weeks later I had another outbreak at 3 seperate spots on my lower lip, and this has made me more anxious that there is something wrong going on. The lesions healed relatively quickly over 3 days when I applied Acyclovir ointment. 8 days later (yesterday), I woke up on another outbreak over my upper lip that are now healing.
