Lip Allergies

Hello,

I am 35 years old and I have lip problems they were red and perfect but recently
have become dark, itchy, chapped and sometimes get swollen.Sometimes I get a thick line
on the edges that itches a lot.

Please advice what should I do.If you have any home care remedy.

Thanks
Pari

Hi,

Since when are you having the symptoms? What is your age? Do you smoke?

Some causes of the symptoms you mention, could be lip biting, lip licking, Vit.B2 deficiency, smoking, overexposure to sun and ill fitting dentures. In extreme cases, this could be due to bacterial or fungal skin infection.

You could also be allergic to some unknown substances.

You need to drink plenty of water daily – around 1.5 – 3 litres per day and eat a balanced diet. Do not keep your lips dry; apply lip balm which contains sunscreen – preferably a medicated one.

If you have cracks at the corner of your mouth it indicates B2 deficiency in this case you need to take B2 supplements. You could take oral antihistamine medications for a few days to control the itching.

If the symptoms still persist, consult your skin specialist or dermatologist.

Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Regards.
