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 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 f tn I have been suffering with cold sores for almost since I was a teenager I am 39 and still suffering with them I never brought this to my doctors attention, because I thought nothing can be done about it. I know the virus is living inside of me and everybody else who gets them, they hurt a lot yesterday morning when I woke up I already started with 3 of them on my upper lip. Do you break out with them when you are stressed? Yesterday my daughter had her 3rd hip surgery...
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.
469210 tn?1219191728 hi i also had awful mouth sores and was prescribed a dental paste - Triamcinolone Acetonide - its prescription only and it works great - relief after one or two applications - the sores still occasionally return but they are easily delt with Joseph66
Avatar f tn Next morning, area was markedly less reddened/inflammed around canker sore, and sore itself was slightly smaller. I made 3 similar treatments throughout the next day, and continued to see significant improvement by the end of the night. Repeat as needed. In sum, a modified 'salt gargle' was very helpful in my case to shrink and heal the sore.
Avatar n tn Hi there, In November 2008, my boyfriend kissed me when he had a visible coldsore on his lip. 24 hours later I had one come up on my lip, but with it came 3 blisters in my mouth (on my tongue & gums). From the day I caught these cold sores, I've hardly had a single day without them. They are rarely on the outside of my mouth though, but always on the inside.
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 I was trying all sorts of chapsticks and lip treatments...including burt's bees peppermint...Eventually, I cut everything and started using aquaphor on a doctor's recommendation. The aquaphor helped with the chapping, but I still had the red rash and bumps...test results came back...I had acquired a staph infection (most likely through the cracks in my lips). I took medication and all cleared up within a week. I started using regular store brand cherry chapstick about a week later.
Avatar n tn I have had this bump on my lip since June of 2008 and it wont go away. My son bit me and left a rather large mark and here it is over a year later and it still bleeds atleast once a day. It gets small and scabs and then gets huge and breaks open and bleeds. My doctor called it mucolytis(sp)? I google that and everything about Chemo an Radiation pop up, I have had neither of these treatments. Any ideas what may get rid of this?
Avatar m tn My lips feel dry and my upper lip at the edge of the lip feels soar and irritated. I have tried Chapstick, Blistex, Carmex, Burt's Bees Wax and Vasoline lip care. They constantly feel dry and irritated and only the top one has a burning sensation. I have never had cold sores or anything like that. The other thing that is happening is the little glands on my top lip are getting inflamed and pop like a zit. Here is no pain when this happens it just looks like a white head.
Avatar f tn Canker sores and cold sores are two different things. Canker sores are not viral or bacterial in nature, but usually caused by stress or tissue injury. Cold sores are viral in nature caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). No, the chicken pox vaccine is for a completely different virus, Varicella Zoster - also a member of the herpes family but not the same as HSV. It would have no impact on cold sores or canker sores.
4333925 tn?1359106042 Patients with food allergies can reduce the frequency of canker sores by avoiding those foods. There are several treatments for reducing the pain and duration of canker sores for patients whose outbreaks cannot be prevented. These include numbing ointments such as benzocaine, which are available in drug stores without a prescription. Anti-inflammatory steroid mouthrinses or gels can be prescribed for patients with severe sores.
Avatar m tn I was prescribed sinus rinses and a regimen of z-pack. I felt those treatments didn't work. It took about a full month to recover A few months after i noticed i started getting tiny sores in my mouth periodically especially on the corners of my mouth and the buccal mucosa. A few days later after the appearance of the sores i would get the dizziness and headache again. It feels miserable and i can barely function in my day to day professional work.

Avatar n tn I occasionally get a little "bubble' on the inside of my lower lip. It is clear and fluid filled. I seem to get one when I am stressed or my immune system is low. Only once I got 2 at a time. They start out small and sometimes get a little bigger. The bubble or cyst doesn't hurt- but it is bothersome and gets sore when I bite it or try to pop it. It usually goes away in a day or two- it pops on its own usually, but sometimes it is so bothersome I try to pop it.
Avatar n tn I have these very small raised red bumps on the cupids bow part of my upper lip. They have been there since I was a teenager. I had them lasered off a few years ago, and this worked - they disappeared. But then they came back a year or so later, and got a bit bigger! I've been to numerous dermatologists and doctors and tried numerous treatments, and none have worked. I've been told it's benign, but it bothers me and if I accidentally scratch my lip, they will bleed.
Avatar f tn I did read that when one first catches Herpes, it's common to have sores in the mouth, then in the future, only have a sore on the lip. I would just go with that thought for now, eat healthy, and try the L-Lysine. I think you are taking all the right steps to figure out your health. Take it a day a time and use this opportunity to build your health. 28 is young, you have a full life ahead. I don't know how much more I can help you other than encouragement.
Avatar m tn In terms of other issues - I don't have any other symptoms other than stress and anxiety about this thing. All I get are these cold sores on my lip. They do not hurt at all. No other physical symptoms I keep reading about boosting immune system helping reduce OB's. How can I boost my immune system? I have started to stay away from unhealthy foods, I take a multivitamin, etc.
Avatar m tn When pulling top lip over teeth shows little white pimple like rash on top lip. Slight burny sensation, and a little raised. Any ideas or treatments used and successful?
Avatar m tn I have consantly suffered from cold sores which has resulted with some scaring on my lips, The scarring has removed some areas of the pigment from areas on my lips were i had the sores. But around 3 or 4 weeks ago on my left upper lip there is an area about 1 centimeter in size right along the border of my lip, this area is thin and is lossing color for a reason that i can not figure out.
163305 tn?1333672171 Just apply a little with a cotton swab and wipe off any excess that goes too close to the inside edge of your lip. If the sores go really close there then you might need to just put it on lightly and avoid eating for half an hour or so. My doctor thought it was fine to use on lips. She freaked out at me putting triamcinolone anywhere on my face. I don't know about your third med. Good luck!

Avatar n tn I finally stopped and started to believe I was going to be okay. And now I OF COURSE got a canker sore on my front lip...followed by another one underneath my tongue...and now another one is forming on my front lip again. I'm on day 37....would this be caused by an HIV infection from giving oral?
Avatar f tn So, if your friend already has had cold sores in the past, she has already has HSV1. There is no way to cure HSV1, but there are treatments for the cold sores that can help alleviate the pain and shorten the duration. I hope this helps. Good luck to you and your friend. Also, although you probably already know this now, DON'T share chapsick/ lipstick / lip gloss with others!

Avatar n tn DOC, I get very infrequent cold sores. Each time one of them pops up on my lip, I become very paranoid of self-inoculation. When I first developed a cold sore, I heard horror stories of gentlemen who touched the sore, used the bathroom and infected their genitals. My questions are; 1. How common is self-inoculation? 2. What can I do to prevent it? 3. What treatment would you recommend at the onset of a cold sore? Thanks very much for all that you do.
Avatar n tn They are raised almost blister-like red bumps barely noticible unless you get close and they dont hurt at all. I suffer from cold sores but do not know if this is related. I have had these for over a year and am worried that they might be permanent scars. a friend of mine had a wort on her lip that resembled my blisters and had it painfully burned off. Has anyone else experienced similar blisters on their lips that lasted a long time?
