Avatar m tn Hi. I was sick with a sore throat and green phlegmn (probably sinus) and was put on augmentin antibiotics. 24 hours before my antibiotic course was over, I noticed irritation and itching next to my clitoral area, in lips of labia. It developed into a swollen lump then developed a head; drained and is shrinking. Now, 72 hours after my antibiotic, I have white patches on my throat. I notice irritation down there in a new spot with itching and redness. I expect a lump to form.
1245380 tn?1268601952 Hi, Itchy sore lips upon continuous use of chap stick could be due to irritation, secondary bacterial infection or allergy to the product. You need to see a physician for further confirmation on this after physical examination. Best.
Avatar n tn hi ive been with my boyfriend for almost 2 years but recently after intercourse my vagina lips tend to swell up and when i go to tha toilet for a wee it is VERY VERY sore, we don't use condoms and we never have, this has happened b4 but stopped and now it's back again, it tends to stop hurting after half hour or so, im 23weeks pregnant and its worried me could this be a yeast infection?
Avatar m tn I have only made out with a couple girl recently and have not given oral sex. Is it likely that this sore could be syphilis on my lips?! The sore is very painful and has been ripping open occasionally, is this characteristic of a syphilis sore? Also if I made out with someone before realizing the sore was there am I at risk for further infection? Thank you for putting up with someone hysterical.
Avatar n tn Or a bad case of Chapped lips , a condition whereby the lips become dry and possibly cracked. It may be caused by the evaporation of moisture. Lip balm can often provide temporary relief, though it should not be used extensively. One should avoid licking their lips as saliva contains the enzyme amylase, which can damage the already compromised lip tissue. Honey can be used on the lips as a natural remedy.
Avatar n tn Hi, About 2 months ago I noticed a part of my upper lip was tingly, I suspected it was a cold sore to used zovirax on it. The next day no cold sore appeared but that area looked red and irritated and was a bit dry. I continued using carmex lip balm to calm it down but it didn't do anything, it remained dry and chapped and felt tight. It has progressively got worse, its not as red anymore but my lips (both upper and lower) now feel tight and dry. I apply lip balm throughout the day and at night.
Avatar n tn A few weeks back both my upper and lower lip became swollen. My lips were tingly and bacame dry around the edges but other than that I had no other symptoms and no cold sores or lesions of any kind in my mouth or on my lips. I went to the doctor and they attributed it to being viral but couldn't pinpoint the cause and advised to let it run it's course.
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with type 1 herpes and had a horrible cold sore outbreak. I took valtrex and they went completely away. A few days later I woke up with bright red lips burning and there is redness above and below my lips as well. There are no sores...they look like chapped lips but feel like some kind of allergic reaction. I had started using vaseline...has anyone heard of this producing such an allergic reaction? Or could it be from the herpes?
Avatar f tn For the past 3 weeks my lips have been very sore, they do not have any bumps, no cracks, nothing just very senistive, started in the upper lip and now it is in both upper and lower, food make them hurt, I am using chapstick " Medicated" I have to put in on at least 50 time a day if not more, they feel like they are burning, and I woke a week ago to find them swollen, what can I do to stop this, it is driving me crazy!
Avatar n tn I have peeling lips on the outside and inside. I also get a sore on the inside of my nose which comes back all the time. I saw an ENT dr, my dermatologist, my internist, and none can figure out what it is. I use vaseline on my lips and chapstick and even some lipsticks make it worse. No one can figure out what causes this. I think it is something in the ingredients of lipstick or toothpaste. Anybody else have these? Thanks, KYkitty.

Avatar m tn I would revisit the Dr and get it looked at again. If it was a cold sore my bet would be you've had the infection for a long time.
Avatar n tn I feel very emarrassed about this but a few ours ago my vaginal lips were itch on the outer side I thought this was due to pubic hair that had grown after shaving so after about an hour of really bad iching I shaved agian although that did calm it down I noticed my right lip was a little swollen then just minutes there im shocked to notice its 3x the size, it is swollen right to the back and as im a petite woman it really dose stand out.
Avatar f tn Hello, These dry lips can be due to cheilitis lips, lichen planus or candidia infection. However the bubble like lump can be a mucocele or a canker sore. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist and get a KOH examination of the skin scrapings done to rule out any fungal infection. Lichen planus can also cause white streak like lesions inside mouth. For the bubble like swelling if it is painless then mucocele is an important possibility.
Avatar n tn I am 39 years old and have been having problem with my peeling lips(whole layer of lower lip and about the vermilion border of upper lip).It's not like chapped lips. My lips keep peeling off several times a day when it get contacts with water or liquid in the food(both upper and lower). There is no pain or bleeding or cracking except for some occasional, burning sensation. I have to use straw drinking water or other liquid and eating with small portion of food to avoid contact with the lips.
Avatar f tn Eventually I got a secondary bacteria infection twice before I realized I could only put vasoline on my lips. Although my lips got better from using the vasoline, the rash didn't stop coming back. The dermatologist diagnosed me with some kind of allergy but tests for everything came back negative. Eventually I was able to narrow it down to toothpaste on my own. I got extremely quick positive results from switching to baking soda.
Avatar m tn sorry 2 b blunt i got swollen lips and it not of sex i had it like on a monday it feel like a tingly thing then it itch a weeny bit now it sore and swollen ???
Avatar n tn i kissed a prostitue a week back on her breasts, her cheeks and her stomach. no lip kissing, . after 3 days noticed a boil on my lips.which appears like a cold sore. looks like a herpes infection .
Avatar n tn Since you weren't wet, your vagina lips swelled due to the friction. And the white clumps make me think you have some sort of infection. Go get checked!
Avatar f tn For the past 2 months, my lips have been constantly dry, sore, and burn when I use medicated lip balm or eat spicy foods. I've also been getting sores in the corners of my mouth which crack and hurt. Nothing I've tried has been able to eliminate the symptoms. I noticed that this started almost immediately after a night of oral sex with my husband. After doing research, I'm assuming I have Cheilitis. Is it possible I contacted some type of fungus from my husband?
Avatar m tn they go away after a couple of days, but anyways, I picked at this one and squeezed it until it got all red and felt like a regular small cyst, no pus or any sort of fluid came out, I just picked away the top and then it scabbed over and has all healed over in like two days. like a pimple. not like a cold sore. anyways, my lips were still extremely chapped from this allergic reaction or burned lips from spicy food or whatever had happened in the first place...maybe bacterial infection?
Avatar n tn My 1 year old cat develops canker sore like lesion at the lips. I have taken him to the vet 3 times. The vet said he has allergy. He had received 3 cortisone shots with no improvement. Has anybody had similar problem with his/her cat? Any suggestions how should I treat this condition. By the way, my cat has no symptoms. He seems to be playful and has good appetite. Any help would be appreciated.
