Avatar n tn I have never had a cold sore that I have known of my entire life, but 4 years ago I went through a very stressful period and in the very center, more on the side than out of my lip I got these tiny sores. They were sensitive to spicy food and soda. I want to say it took well over a month for them to totally go and every so often if I drank soda i could feel a little tingly from the soda but nothing came back.

Avatar n tn Like said above vitamin b 2 or iron deficiency or zinc can cause it. Licking excessively or drooling at night. Or just poor hygiene in moutH. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn If you look at most of the ingredients in your lip glosses/chapsticks/or any other lip product that you are allergic to, you can almost pinpoint what is causing your bad reactions. It's different for everyone, so I can't provide an answer for you guys, but I can tell you that I am allergic to Chapstick, Carmex, MAC lipglasses/glosses soft lips, and other random free chapsticks that I had gotten as gifts, ie rosebud's.

Herpes simplex type I blisters or Cold sores or fever blisters are one and the same thing. Unlike canker sores, cold sores are caused by a virus and are extremely contagious. Also, cold sores typically appear outside the mouth – usually, under the nose, around the lips, or under the chin while canker sores occur inside the mouth.
Avatar f tn Hello, In my opinion these are canker sores. Canker sores are small shallow ulcers that appear in the mouth and often make eating and talking uncomfortable.

Avatar m tn Hello, Severe stress can trigger eczema as well as canker sores on the lips. Canker sores are small shallow ulcers that appear in the mouth and often make eating and talking uncomfortable.
Avatar m tn I have the same problem in the corner of my lips. My doc said it is a zinc deficiency and recommended a supplement. He said if that doesn't work, there is a prescription he can give me. You should talk to your doc. I think you're on the right track with the zinc oxide.
408312 tn?1202062473 Mostly on my upper lip. My lip gets swollen and very tiny blisters around the perimeter (but still on my lip). I have gotten cold sores in the past so I know this is not one. Has anyone found out what this is and what is causing it?
Avatar m tn Some days it's more prominent than others and my lips tend to dry out now and then, but I'm trying to avoid putting any sort of ointment/chapstick on them in the event that something coming in contact with the lips is irritating them further. I've included a recent photo (not the best quality) that shows my bottom lip and my lip line is no longer definitive.
Avatar n tn its in a green square tin) In extreme cases, apply hydrocortisone ointment under the lip balm. Avoid frequent lip licking. Change lipstick to rule out allergies. Apply lip balm with sunscreen before venturing into the sun. Use a humidifier indoors whenever possible. Increase water intake in the winter months to further hydrate the skin.
Avatar n tn So about a week or two after I made my post in October, the tiny bumps went away. About the same time I made the post I began taking daily L-lysine pills (on the back of the supplement bottle, it says that they help with skin & lip health. My mother-in-law uses them for cold sores, she says the L-lysine helps dry them out faster), idk if that helped my lips heal faster, or whatever it was just out ran its course though.
Avatar f tn (I did clean the inside of each sore really well before using tea tree) I am guessing tons of folks on this thread use these ointments trying to control infection of small sores that turn into big sores over time, it's the ointment in my case. I had to share this once I realized what my problem was. Good luck everyone!
Avatar n tn for about 3months now I've had open sores/sensitive tongue, only on the right side - prior to that I used to get sores now and again. I have tried everything (under doctors advise) including Daktarin, Orabase but these have not helped... I find spicy,hard foods make it worse and today I have had onions and my tongue feels really sensitive with a burning sensation. I do sometimes take paracetamol which does help with some of the discomfort.
Avatar n tn She had put me on Valtrex the first day of the sores (just in case) and I was on three pills a day (figured she would overdo it to be safe). After 10 days of that, the sores have still not cleared up AT ALL. I'm still in major pain and the sores are no different. When I called my doctor back, she told me that first outbreaks of herpes can be much more severe and that maybe she didn't get a good enough tissue sample and that maybe I had recent exposure to it.
Avatar n tn I have just recently begun suffering from the same ailment. These small red bumps/sores come so quickly that I will wake up in the morning with as many as 4 new ones on my hand. I only ever get them on my right hand and they persist for weeks at a time until finally they fade away. They cluster at the joints of my knuckles, mostly on the inside of my hand and between my fingers. Its so painful for me to bend my fingers and move my hand.
Avatar n tn These broken blisters often leave (little open sores) which can be difficult and slow to heal. These outbreaks seem to come in waves, as I'll often go weeks or even a month or two without a sign of blisters, itching, or infection. I have never had any white puss or swelling redness around these troublesome blisters/vesicles, which isn't like any normal skin infection I've ever had before. Can anyone help me diagnosis this problem please?

Avatar n tn The best treatment I have found is Balmex- a kind of skin protectant found in the pharmacy area with diaper rash items. Other similar products containing zinc oxide were recommended by my doctor but cause intolerable itching.
Avatar n tn hi im only16 years old and i have them mainly on the back of my hands, on my fingers, and on my feet they itch like crazy and when they pop it really hurts and clear liquid comes out it so gross. Do you have any idea what it is or what cases it?

Avatar n tn One of the symptoms of a B 12 deficiency is a burning sensation due to nerve damage. If the deficiency goes for a long time, the damage is irreversible. I started B 12 shots last week and am praying this is the cure I am looking for. I truly hope this info will help all of you also.
Avatar n tn Some conditions that I can think of (though cannot fully explain what you are experiencing) are Vitamin D and Calcium deficiency that can weaken the bones, or it can be a normal anatomic variant. In some persons, the fontanelles (the skull openings when we were babies), fail to calcify and close that can lead to this deformity (this is very rare). So I suggest you consult your doctor and hope you get a good explanation. Regards..
Avatar n tn Googling my symptoms brought me here and I am so glad to at least have found people with the same issue!! My itching and irritation coincided with a very heavy period (changing tampons every 2 hours, which is unusual for me) and a 30 minute sex romp in a hottub/spa with my husband. I chalked it up to irritation but weeks later it's unbearable. I've come up clean for STDs, yeast, trichomoniasis and anything bacterial.
