Sun lip blister treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Sun lip blister treatment


1758222 tn?1312816600 i work in the sun all day everyday, my lip got a blister on it, so i tried chapstick, then my whole lip got blisted, i thought i was alergic, but it is just the bottom lip, it is very painful and will not get better on its own, i went to the er they said maybe it was some sort of staph infection, they gave me acyclovir antibiotics and mupirocin cream, but the cream burns to badly to apply ... please help!!
Avatar n tn and a very small blister will appear below the bottom lip, not on it, like the herpes blister. I take an antihistamine, and put different ointments on, (allergy cream makes them sting ) and it goes away in about 3 days...until I go out in the sun again. My physician is puzzled and says my lips definitley look like an allergic reaction question is....what can I put on them to BLOCK the sun completely??
Avatar n tn I have a pimple like clear round blister inside my lower lip. I'm concerned that it is herpes, a cold sore. It heals but it is still there, it comes out again. Should I be concerned or could it just be a mucocele?
Avatar n tn Not sure if it's a side effect from that (I was sexually active when I was unaware of the yeast infection), or a side effect from the flucanazole (oral yeast infection treatment). It doesn't hurt, but it definitely feels like I have a piece of tape stuck to my lip. It peels. The skin is thin. My lip is starting to develop a wrinkle in the spot. It's red, and when I have lip gloss on, it is not visible to the naked eye.
Avatar n tn I also have shown some irritation to products with petrolatum. Neosporin daily lip treatment, Palmers lip balm, Aquaphor, and Blistex lip renewal seem to help but don't completely alleviate the symptoms. Neosporin night treatment, carmex, vasoline, chapstick, burts bees, other blistex have all made the symptoms worse! With all of those products I have experienced the red swollen, peeling lips. Please keep posting anything that you've tried that helps!
Avatar n tn The little blisters then started popping up elsewhere -- my ear, thighs, calves, my head (under my hear) and face. I actually think there is one even under my nail! I recently cut my lip while flossing (dry lips!) and it has turned into a gross sore -- could this be a cold sore? Do you think it's related to this other outbreak? Does it sound like Herpes or yeast, or some sort of infection?
4333925 tn?1359106042 I've never have had a fever blister so I am thinking that it is just from the treatment. I guess I should have asked if there is a difference between abreva or the store brand.
1853014 tn?1340042175 Thanks to everyone for their quick response. I woke up yesterday with a fever blister on my lip. (oh great) no big deal.. today i wake up and after a couple hours being up notice a rash breaking out on my hands. so i have put lotion on it. I am drinking water,water,water and nothing else. Everything else is too sweet. Also losing my appetite nothing takes good or right anymore. So very tired but get up and get out of the house and walk some.
Avatar n tn So frustrating because no amount or type of lip balm seemed to help (vaseline lip therapy, body shop lip salve, etc etc). Additionally, the skin above my upper lip became dry, red and irritated. About 2-3 weeks after that, I started experiencing swollen eyelids as well as dry, wrinkled, red, itchy patches above and below my eyes. I could not apply the most mild lotion to those areas because it would burn, but it was so dry I wanted to do something.
Avatar f tn Fast forward to a few days ago, I woke up with a blister on my lip and my lips were swollen and releasing a lot of this clear fluid - from all over my lips, not just the blister. I also had a rash around the lining of my lips. The day after, I woke up to extreme swelling and a number of yellow blisters on my lips. My lips release this clear pus like fluid constantly. My lips become yellow and crusty in the mornings - I usually clean the with a cotton pad soaked in salt water.
Avatar f tn Even when I put any type of antifungal or fever blister treatment on the mouth it would burn. Right now the corners have healed. The center of my upper lip is very chapped and dry. Do you think I should see a dermatologist now or should I wait to see if the corners crack again. My family doc did not seem to think I had angular chelitis. However, when I first noticed the problem, the photos I saw on line for angular chelitis looked exactly like what I was experiencing....
Avatar n tn Within the first day the blisters had grew and were swollen and also moved down to cover the top portion of my upper lip. Within about 10 days the blister crust over and the scab also feel off. The skin underneath the blister was slightly red, it looked irritated. I didn't pay much attention to it because I thought it would heal in just days. But as of today the skin affected by this sore still looks irritated. The area now is more of a dark red color.
Avatar m tn My stress factor was really increasing at this time with the idea that this was becoming a big problem that I will have to live with for a lifetime. The Initial area on lower lip seemed to get dry and flaky when exposed to sun/ocean, This initial area on the lip never bubbled up like a blister that I associate with the typical out breaks I have seen on genital area. March - Acne type dermatitis issues continue on face.
Avatar m tn I touched my lips a lot during the early outbreak and I think the top lip got a bit of the virus from the bottom lip. I've had canker sores before and they are due to deficient nutrients/vitamins or other factors such as stress..etc but it never came with clusters of blisters. Some were small open cuts inside the mouth but definitely not like the ones I got after a herpes blister.
Avatar n tn Today I got like a sun blister on my lip, I usually get that twice a year or so from the sun, so am not sure if its tx or not, RN called today to see how I made out, told her good other than chills, mentioned my lip she promptly gave me a prescription for fungal whatever, haven't used it yet was going to see if it gets worse or what? has anyone experienced this type of blister?
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?
55646 tn?1263664409 Nationally, there are at least three different studies beginning for the treatment of genital herpes. First, the Genocea phase one (first in humans) trial. Instead of an oral medication to treat herpes, Genocea out of Boston has taken the approach of stimulating the immune system to respond more robustly to the herpes virus in people who are already infected with the virus.
Avatar n tn Is that " Fever Blister " ?- Check out some pics... i got tiny pimples all around my top lip line , few yellow/white spots on inner top lip. & few of them b/w top & bottom lip joining area.....taking pills as per doctor. i never had any pain or itching..
Avatar n tn It was hot outside and I managed to get a sunburn on my neck and even under my eyes to which I blame my sun glasses for as they are perscription. My center of the lip I have these two bridges I guess you would describe that seperate the center from the sides of the face. There appears to be a redness around the lips which has been there since the 18th but now a kind of white dot/area on that midline on the lip. It doesn't really like burn but feels werid.
Avatar n tn I would say if you have had no oral sex encounters in the last 90 days and do not have signs like the ones I speak of you likely have oral herpes in the mouth which also in many cases is asymptomatic and thereby show no symptoms symptomatic cases would yield a fever blister in the outer lip nostril or around the mouth but generally on the lips. You can get this Virus very easily especially when young as your immune system is not developed sufficiently to fight it off.
Avatar m tn Does hSv1 infect eyelids? I did it again- 4 days ago, i cut my lower lip while shaving and the next day, the lip started to swell and tingle, so as a precaution, I started taking 500 g of valcyclovir daily and applied acyclovir cream to that area. My lip has no swelling now and a scab has formed on the cut.
Avatar m tn Do these bumps appear prior to treatment or after? If before, could be infection causing it or more likely sweat bumps. This can be an allergy to the neosporin (cream vs. ointment), which I doubt, or to the bandage adhesive. If it lasts a long time, the cut is most probably infected and you want to see a doctor who can prescribe antibiotics and/or a stronger ointment to be used. Additionally, using hydrogen peroxide to clean the area (just pour over) helps.
Avatar n tn I didn't itch hardly at all on treatment. After treatment, that's another story. I hope, NYGirl that yours will go away when you finish up with your treatment and that you'll be done with itching! Mine is itching only when I exercise, get too hot, (like showers), whenever I get direct sunlight, or get in a room where the heat's on too high. Anyway, it's so annoying because on a nice day, you really want to be able to take a walk outside in the sunlight.
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 Starting this off I will say that I was tested for everything under the sun 2 years ago when I got out of an abusive relationship (and pregnant). Everything then was normal. I had my regular woman's health appt a few weeks ago and they did the HPV and the swab STD tests (chlymidia, etc..) & they came back normal.I hadnt had sex in 2 years until last weekend. I had way too much to drink & not only had sex with my boyfriend, but VERY rough and unprotected sex. YEs I know it was stupid.
Avatar n tn Also, when I scratch them, more tiny blisters will develop around the original blister, signifying an infection. 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.
Avatar m tn Hello all... I recently started dating a girl that informed me she has recurring "cold sores", recurring approx. once every year. Of course she informs me of this with NO active blister and after she performed oral sex on me. I began to panic a bit b/c I know that Cold Sores are a form of Oral Herpes...HSV1. Instead of running for the door I really wish to become educated on this topic since cold sores seem so common; although I have not had one in recent memory... ever!
Avatar f tn They form on my lips (upper or lower), sometimes on the border of where the pink lip skin meets regular skin. I've never had professional diagnosis or treatment during an outbreak since I've been getting them for as long as I can remember, as do my mother and siblings. Thank you again for your insight. This service has been very helpful.
Avatar n tn When the swelling dissipates on my feet and fingers I actually shed the top layer of skin around the swollen area over a period of days, like a blister on the mend. The lip and neck swelling don't itch, but the finger and feet swelling becomes an insane itch without any relief from over the counter anti- itch products. Taking an anti-histamine slows down the whole process. I'm worn out from this process..........
Avatar m tn I never knew I needed to if it is just a fever blister. I've always been smart not to kiss or have oral sex if I had a fever blister. Idk. This is all just too much. I will NEVER do this again...
