There are two possibilities that are coming in my mind.
Firstly,It can be due to vit B deficiency.Take some vitamin B complex for some days and see if your symptoms improve.
Secondly,it can be due to atopic dermatitis or eczema("Atopic" refers to a group of diseases where there is often an inherited tendency to develop other allergic conditions, such as asthma and hay fever). Cheilitis(Inflammation of the skin on and around the lips)is often seen in atopic dermatitis.Diagnosed by bld test like RAST.Treatment is by topical steroids or oral therapy of corticosteroids in severe cases.Topical creams like tacrolimus ointment (Protopic) and pimecrolimus cream (Elidel) are also useful.
The fissuring and cracks at the corners of mouth is called angular chelitis.It is thought to be caused by vit B12 deficiency,iron deficiency anemia,zinc deficiency or malnutrition as in celiac disease.Avoid licking of lips as it makes the lips more dry and apply Vaseline at regular intervals.Also as advised above take some multivitamins and iron supplements for some days and see if the symptoms improve.For the cold sores,you are already taking treatment.
If the symptoms still persist then specific medications like antifungal and antibiotic medication have to be prescribed.Moreover,Peterson Brown Kelly syndrome has to be ruled out.Pls consult a physician in that case.
I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
Seems to me like there is definitely a chemistry imbalance in your pH levels. Go to the health store and buy some pH papers. You can test the body's pH level first thing in the morning BEFORE you eat or drink - - -including water!
Sounds like you are very acidic. I get the cold sores, cracks in sides of mouth, and tongue ulcers as well. As SOON AS I FEEL THEM COMING ON, I immediately take 1,000 mg of Lysine (500mg in the morning, 500mg at night). I starts to thwart them off by the next day. It is truly amazing. (Get the GOOD kind at a place like the Vitamin store or a reputable health food store - - - make sure it has NO yeast in it!)
There seem to be certain foods / chemicals in the food that instigate mine. Keep a food diary! It is all process of elimination.
If that doesn't work, then you may want to get it checked out. My neighbor has a very severe case of something similar, but it will stay around for WEEKS! He had to be put on antiobiotics. Some people just tend to get stuff like this. Hang in there . . .
