Sore lips medication

Common Questions and Answers about Sore lips medication


Avatar f tn He told me anytime blisters are visible, it's a cold sore. The dry patches are just a symptom. Avoid rubbing your lips together, licking them, or picking at them to prevent the virus from spreading. It's tempting to touch the dry patches because sometimes they're awfully dry and can burn/sting. Treat it with over-the-counter ointments/creams. Ask for a prescription of anti-viral medication if it's very bad.
5789562 tn?1374462629 The corner of my lips are raw and sore. My lips feel like I have a strip of tape on them. I have been using blistex medicated lip ointment occasionally and I take allegra daily. I don't know if this is due to the recent increase in my thyroid medicine, but if you have any suggestions I'm all ears.
Avatar n tn It didn't go away, but changed into a mild metallic taste for a day, and is now a strong salty taste that has degrees of taste ranging from mild to extremely salty. It seems to be coming from my lips, and they dry out and started to crack until I put lip balm on. I am healthy otherwise except for an bad sinus problem that I will be seeing an ENT about. I smoke a half a pack a day drink way to much coffee.
Avatar m tn It's probably a cold sore, talk to a doctor about it, there is medication for it
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.
Avatar n tn My lips went red, and they split vertically to leave big cracks all over. they were also sore and more red than usual and slightly swollen. The sore lasted about two weeks. then about another 2-3 weeks later exactly the same thing happened, this happened a further 2 times so I had 4 cold sores in the space or a couple of months. I used various creams including Zovirax which didnt seem to work.
Avatar f tn It started with a broken tooth that got sore, then the gums, then my cheeks and tongue swelled up nd inside of mt lips, I developed a white sore on the end of my tongue and it split open from top to underneath. Really bad headaches nd now my throat is sore and my lungs are tight. I gargle and brush with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, which keeps it somewhat under control. What do you thinK? O, and I am extremely fatigued. I almost forgot to mention that I have red spots on my palate.
Avatar n tn They still felt irritated and whenever I pressed my lips together it felt like there was something on my lips. When I took a closer look in the mirror, I noticed tiny clear bumps on my lips. Does anyone know what this is and what caused it? Also, how can I get it to go away?
Avatar f tn For over 3 years or so I've had this recurring burning lip episode that comes and goes at random intervals. My lips swell and get bright bright pink/redish. They burn and tingle, and then get dry and crack. I feel tingling/burning in concentrated places on my lips but never see any visible blisters or bumps!! I've never had any cold sores or fever blisters. I've been tested via Herpeselect IgG 1&2 blood serum tests and the results have come back 0.3 for both!!
Avatar n tn Also, I do kiss my husbands mouth when I do not have a visible sore. My first cold sore was really bad, it itched, had alot of clear fluid and really was sore and it took a long time to heal. I really do think the first one is the worst, because you don't know what it is, Think,did you kiss anyone with a sore on their mouth, never do that.
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago, I went to visit my physician regarding a problem I had with a ring of redness around my lips - more prominent on my bottom lip - it was a lighter, tender pink shade and kind of looked like I had been drinking lots of red kool-aid. I also had constant dry, cracked and bleeding lips, and tried everything from drinking plenty of water and making sure I wasn't licking them.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning and she said swelling like this (tongue, lips) is called angiodema. She said if I continue to expose myself to this allergen (whatever it may be) the next stage could be anaphylaxis. I'm really scared. I have 2 little kids and I'm terrified of something happening. I can't avoid the allergen if I don't know what it is.:( Please help.
Avatar n tn Today I received laser surgery to get it removed as I was told (after seeing a physician and two dermatologists) that the procedure was my only option. My lips are a little swollen and kind of sore but I'm glad to finally have it done. According to my plastic surgeon, the oil glands are because I am naturally oily. He also says my excessive use of lip ointment could be a reason as well. He says use lip ointment scarcely on specific areas. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Age - 19 Non-smoker History of eczema, but not on or around the face, and not seen for years I don't lick my lips, I use Chap Stick quite a lot because I do get chapped lips easily Iron deficiency runs in family, but is usually not a problem for me because I include lots of iron and Vit-C in my diet As far as I know, I'm perfectly healthy otherwise and haven't been ill in months.
Avatar m tn S and when I started using it..the corner of m lips sore and the inner membrane of both my upper and lower lip,I thought it was my lipgloss but it wasn't.I take anti allergy medication ( oral drug) . What kind of alllergy is this?What will I do with this?What cause it? Is it the content of the toothpaste?
Avatar n tn Hi All, Since starting thyroid medication (synthroid) recently changed to tirosint I have had several skin issues and I am wondering of they are linked or if anyone else has experienced them. First started bright red under eyes, no pain associated, then came very very dry skin on my face and my eyes feeling very sore as if they needed to be rubbed all the tie. About two weeks later some circular rashes started appearing on about 4 different spots on my arms.
Avatar n tn My partner and I had oral sex last night. I developed a cold sore today. I had been sick previously and my lips were dried out. I put neosporne on them to help them heal, but had not had any symptoms of cold sores, no tingling, no blisters. Today I have blisters and tingling. The contact during sex was brief and minimal. The cold sores are on the top of my lips, not middle or bottom. Is it likely I transmitted herpes to my partner? How long if it was transmitted before signs show?
Avatar n tn But I have this horrible bitter taste on my lips that just won't go away. Like when you use nail polish remover and then stick your finger in your mouth by accident... only I don't wear nail polish and haven't used any polish remover. No household cleaners either... It's just a really horrible bitter taste on my lips. Any clues???
Avatar f tn Upon reflection, I think it may have been a canker sore, not a cold sore, and my understanding is that cold sores aren't common inside the mouth. In any case, it went away within 12 hours, and now it's like a clear dark dot, as if I had a pencil jab there. It's been this way for most of the intervening two weeks, with no pain, itching, nothing. I'm posting because I'm still wondering what it was. If it was a canker sore, why did it react to the Famvir?
Avatar n tn I've had one cold sore more than 6 years ago, or i think it was a cold sore. I'm not sure. Is it possible that if I have HSV 1 and i have like chapped lips or something, and the ureaplasma wasn't completely cured, that maybe the bacteria got in and maybe triggered the HSV?
Avatar f tn I have this whitehead looking thing on/ around my lip and am not sure if it’s a cold sore. I’ve never had one before but I can’t find anyone who's had a white head. I'm assuming its still a cold sore because I rarely get pimples now... let me know what you think...
Avatar n tn I havn't seen any lesions or blisters anywhere other then the Canker sore iniside my bottom lip.Which i can't see now.My lips still seem chapped and are sore especially in the corners..i think that is just due to cold weather.The doctor gave me medication...Cefixime and Azirthomycin.Not sure how long it will take to clear things up if it does.Took them yesterday morning...still feeling some soreness at the tip of my penis.
Avatar n tn I developed one of the worst cold sores I've ever had this week, and coinciding with it was a general sensitivity over the same side of my face, which I never had with a cold sore. The area surrounding the sore itself was also swollen, which was also a first time experience for me. Basically, the cold sore is at the corner of my mouth, right side. Going from that corner up to my right temple and just past my hairline is a general tenderness with occasional shooting pains.
Avatar n tn My mom is undergoing chemo now for stage 2a breast cancer, she had 4 treatments of AC but then was highly allergic to taxol so is now having 4 treatments of taxotere. After her first taxotere friday 6/6 she had a sore tongue Saturday and Sunday developed a white milky tongue with an "iky" taste in her mouth, she waited 4 days and called the doc, they gave her an oral pill to take and it has not seemed to work.
Avatar f tn I got tired of seeing it so I tried popping it , when I tried to pop it hurt a bit and a tiny amount of white came out (literally tiny amount) and a oily substance, which my family said I just tried to pop it to early and a tiny scab was created ( which have happened to some of the pimples I've had), they next day I scraped of the tiny scab and some of the skin around came off and a clear substance came up so I dabbed it off, which now scares me because I read that if it is a cold sore the ups
Avatar m tn I gave oral sex 17 days ago to another male. Around day 10, my neck became sore and I was checked by a Dr. and he said I had a swollen lymph node (not very swollen, very little). On day 14, I noticed these red dots/raw patches on the roof of my mouth near my front teeth (where those bumps that everyone has are). I went to the Dr. that day and she said she never seen herpes inside the mouth but said it could possibly be herpes.
Avatar m tn One time while applying medication, it accidently popped. The cold sore did not seem to be going away. I used an entire package of Abreva, and an entire perscription of Denavir, yet this thing still will not going away. It has been well over a month, and it doesn't seem to be getting any smaller. I am starting to wonder if it really is a cold sore. It currently looks just like a red spot on my upper lip, yet when the skin is pulled it looks like a slight pimple with liquid inside.
Avatar n tn My symptoms got a lot worse before they got better, and included not only flu symptoms (chills, body aches), but also significant internal vaginal discomfort, sore / tingly feet and ear aches / head pressure and even tingly lips. What I did NOT get, and am assuming I won't get because I'm feeling mostly better now, are any externally visible sores or lesions or blisters. I'm assuming that it's highly possible to get all of these symptoms without lesions when you have Type 2, correct?
Avatar m tn lips (cold sores/fever blisters), nose, chin and occasionally the eyes. It' can be spread if one has an open sore on the mouth and they mess with it or apply medication to it, basically directly touching the open sore and then say touching other areas of the face.
