Home Remedy For Cracked Lip Corners – Natural Angular Cheilitis Treatment

Cracked lip corners can be extremely painful. Indeed, although small, the cracks, blisters and scabs which can appear at the corners of the mouth can be excruciatingly painful and their size often belies just how bad they can feel!

Known as angular cheilitis, this condition is surprisingly common. Although it is most common the the elderly and in younger children, it can appear in anyone, regardless of age. It is not always simple to determine exactly what has caused the cracked lip corners in every case. However, there are a number of common factors which can make it much more likely.

Excess moisture leaking out of the mouth edges often triggers the condition. For others, it could be pen-sucking or finger biting. In a smaller number of cases, it can be brought about by nutritional deficiencies-particularly Vitamin B12 and Iron. The almost constant moisture causes the skin to crack and split. This area then becomes infected as the damp, moist conditions are a perfect environment for the growth of bacteria and fungal infections. Once this takes hold, it is extremely difficult to eradicate completely.

Fortunately, there are a few simple angular cheilitis treatment options to ease the cracked lip corners. In very mild cases, these may be sufficient to calm the area down, but if the condition has persisted for more than a couple of days, it is likely that an infected has taken hold and you may need to take appropriate action.

If badly fitting dentures are an issue, measures should be taken to have these corrected and with appropriate treatment, the condition should disappear. To prevent pen and finger biting, paint the ends of pens or fingernails with bitter “anti-nail-biting” solution which is readily available from pharmacies. If you feel the condition could have been brought about by deficiencies on Iron or Vitamin B12, low-cost supplements are available if recommended by your doctor. If the angular cheilitis is relatively mild, you can get relief by applying a layer of petroleum jelly or unperfumed lip balm on the cracked lip corners.

If the cracked lip corners have persisted for more than a couple of days, it is likely that the condition has taken hold and become bacterial or fungal in nature and is unlikely to simply heal up without intervention. Fortunately it is possible to completely cure this condition within 24 hours by using a remedy which is guaranteed to work. By this time tomorrow, the pain and soreness will be completely gone-indeed most people notice a significant improvement within a couple of hours.

    Does camphor or campho phenique relieve or cure angular cheilitis?
    For about a week now I have noticed the little cracks and redness developing in the corners of my mouth, after careful research (intense googling) I have come to realize that my condition is most likely angular cheilitis. I have tried a number of remedies and treatments to solve this problem. I even tried the home remedy offered on several angular cheilitis websites (found the remedy for free luckily). My mom suggested I try using campho-phenique with drying action on the sores followed by lysine coldstick. I am wondering if this is an effective method to resolve my angular cheilitis. While the camphor does give me pain relief and seem to dry out the area I want to know if it will in fact resolve the cheilitis. Also is applying the lysine stick a good idea in addition. Any ideas to help relieve this irritation would be great but I really want to know if I can use the camphor and lysine without having to actually go to a doctor for something which seems so trivial and I have caught on to so early? I do have lesions which bleed if I open my mouth to wide especially in the early morning when a crust like scab appears to form around the little cuts.
    In addition it is to my knowledge after researching angular chelitis that drying out the area would be beneficial based upon the causes of angular cheilitis (fungal or bacterial infections are the main causes), so my question is not so much about my lips drying up but whether camphor would be helpful for angular cheilitis?

    • ANSWER:
      Your lips might just be drying out because it’s natural for them to, just like mine. I suggest using that medicated chap-stick and use it every time you think your lips are drying up.

    What can I do for lip relief until I can visit the doctor?
    I would like to begin by saying I am going to the doctor as soon as I return home from school. This is looking for 1) temporary relief as nothing provides it anymore and 2) for a name or something to ask my doctor about. I know it is not angular cheilitis as the doctor and I have already rules that out.

    Very dry cracked skin on lips
    Inflamed and swollen
    Skin peels a lot
    Red raw and sore
    Edges of my mouth will be very sore
    The skin around my mouth will become very red, splotchy, painful, inflamed
    This problem has been persisting for about 3 years now and every time it occurs it gets worse.
    The problem begins one of two ways. One day my lips will out of nowhere (and very quickly) become very dry and chapped then they will become sore and unable to stay moisturized. The second way it will happen is the corners of my mouth will crack (hence the angular cheilitis) then they will become chapped and the entire process will begin.
    There is no link between the symptoms and the weather (and all other climate conditions such as it being dry), my stress level, my menstrual cycle, the season, what foods I eat/drink, or what lip products I use. I have stopped using all lip glosses and flavored chapsticks. I use either plain black label chapstick or petroleum jelly. I have also tried using blistex, medicated blistex, medicated lip treatments, carmex, and even several different types of a product like Neosporin, or nothing at all (as too much moisture was thought to be a problem once).
    I have also tried changing my diet, taking more vitamins (multi and a hair, skin and nails), limiting sun exposure, changing skin moisturizers, changing tooth paste, not wearing makeup, everything.
    Seeking medical help:
    Previously the dermatologist told me to use only petroleum jelly and desitin in the corners of my mouth as it was believe to be angular cheilitis however the problem affects my whole mouth and not just the corners. This form of treatment did not work and the problem eventually went away on its own, only to reoccur a few months later.
    Another doctor gave me a cream to use. While at first the cream did made the symptoms subside it quickly became ineffective against the problem.
    All forms of treatment (including the ones doctors have prescribed) have resulted in only temporary relief and not solved the underlying problem, they have only treated the symptoms.

    I have been doing research on my own. Many people seem to suffer from the same symptoms but
    There is no clue as to what the underlying problem may be. The closest I have come is Helicobacter pylori

    “Doctors now believe that some of these ulcerative diseases may be caused by H. pylori and other bacteria. A simple blood test will tell you if you have H. pylori bacterium, which is treated with oral antibiotics. If you get frequent mouth sores that do not heal well, especially if you also have other ulcerative or digestive problems, you should talk not only to your dentist about it, but your medical doctor, because it could be a symptom of a larger problem.”

    In September I was diagnosed with stomach ulcers and put on omeprazole for ulcers. The problems have existed long before the diagnosis of stomach ulcers however the problem has gotten worse ever since.

    Other things that I have found may be the cause:
    Eczema of the lips
    Perioral dermatitis

    Thank you!
    It HURTS a lot. To the point where opening my mouth hurts. It’s also ugly and nasty looking but that could bother me less. I want relief because it hurts.

    Tip of the day: READ.
    The doctor told me to use the petroleum jelly. I’m not allergic.
    I’ve also increased my water intake and the “natural” Bert’s Bee’s irritates it. If something is inflamed don’t put peppermint on it duh.

    • ANSWER:
      I didn’t read past the petroleum jelly part but stop using that stuff. You are probably allergic to it. There are quite a few people who are. Your symptoms are extremely close to that of an allergic reaction. Start using only natural chap sticks without the jelly. Burts bees is one. Also increase you water intake.

Frequently Asked Questions

    Angular cheilitis – steroid cream – bad for rosacea?
    I have been diagnosed (loosely according to the doc) as having seborrheic dermatitits, rosacea and meibomian gland dysfunction.

    Just discovered I also have the lovely Angular cheilitis – cracks in the corners of the mouth and a rash there. Been given Daktarin (not gold). Which contains Daktacort hydrocortisone cream which contains two active ingredients, miconazole nitrate and hydrocortisone acetate.

    Hydrocortisone acetate is a type of medicine known as a corticosteroid (or steroid)

    I’m sure I heard a steroid is bad for rosacea. Although it’s not anywhere near the Angular cheilitis, a bit worried. Logic tells me if I don’t put it on rosacea effected areas I should be fine. What you think?

    Interestingly apparently Angular cheilitis has been linked to a vitamin B2 deficiency – strange seeing as I take a b vitamin everyday. 5000% RDA as it’s good for rosacea apparently.

    • ANSWER:
      Seborrheic dermatitis with rosacea overlap is not that unusual. Steroid creams are not going to flare the rosacea worse as long as it is used only for the cheilitis. Keep in mind you don’t want to use the steroid cream as a treatment for rosacea. Rosacea already lends itself to extra blood vessels on the face. If you already have these vessels and overuse steroid cream you run the risk of develop more of the vessels as well as skin thinning.

      A good therapy for the seborrhea would be a product called Promiseb. Promiseb is steroidal cream to keep the seborrhea at bay and can be used daily. Promiseb + your rosacea medication such as Metrocream or Finacea is a good regime.

      As for the Vitamin B supplementation, if it works for you then it is a water soluble vitamin. If you take too much you will just urinate it out. I would hate for you to be wasting your money on expensive urine…..

      Good luck

    What causes this crack in the corner of my mouth?
    I understand this is Angular cheilitis.

    What causes it though? If it’s a B vitamin deficiency I am a little concerned as I have been taking very high doses of b vitamins for months 5000% RDA.

    Should I be worried.

    Also have red burning cheek (could be rosacea) and meibomian gland dysfunction in my eyelids, bur had cracks in corners of my mouth for years on and off.

    • ANSWER:
      The causes vary and are often idiopathic (unknown). What are you taking so much B? If you are taking high doses of A, that would explain the angular cheilitis.

      The meibomian gland dysfunction, the red cheeks, and the angular cheilitis suggest that your lipid secretion is dysregulated. A dermatologist will be able to diagnose this. It could simply be rosacea, which can affect lipids in all your glands.

      The megadoses of vitamin B suggest that there is more to your medical history than you are reporting here. If you visit a dermatologist, all of this can be put together and figured out.

Leopard Gecko Stopped Eating – What Shall I Do?

“My Leopard gecko stopped eating, what shall I do” is a really common question found in any online forum about reptiles and that’s because it’s quite a common occurrence in Leopard geckos, if you’re not very careful.

If your Leopard gecko won’t eat, an impaction (like constipation in humans). You can check this by gently feeling your gecko’s abdomen which will feel lumpy if there is an impaction and you may even be able to see the lumps.

If you can feel an impaction, take the following steps:

If you are using a loose substrate to line your gecko’s aquarium, replace it with scrunched up paper towels or specialised carpet. Whatever you do, do not use bark, cat litter or any other substance of a similar nature.

These creatures often eat loose substrate as a substitute for calcium so make sure that a dish of calcium is always available in their enclosure. They will eat it as and when they feel the need.

Dehydration is another reason why a Leopard gecko won’t eat so make sure that there is always plenty of fresh water available. It should be changed on a daily basis.

Give your pet a warm soak for ten minutes a couple of times a day. Make sure that the water temperature is no higher than a gecko’s normal blood temperature.

Take care to feed your gecko the right food. In the wild, they will eat grubs, worms, spiders and insects but in captivity, crickets are the most readily available food. However, owners do try to feed their pets with crickets which are too big; never feed a cricket which is longer than the width of the gecko’s head. Give your gecko a treat and try to procure some wax worms or meal worms which may tempt his appetite. Alternatively, you can breed your own crickets so that you have control over the size at which they are fed to your gecko.

Give you pet specialist vitamin supplements, which your vet will be able to provide.

If your Leopard gecko won’t eat after a couple of days following the above suggestions then take him to a vet and if you can’t feel or see anything out of the ordinary at the outset but still your Leopard gecko won’t eat then take him to a vet straight away and remember to tell the vet when your Leopard gecko stopped eating and any other detail such as what he last ate, which may help the vet to diagnose what’s wrong with your pet.

About the author: Ella McGinley is an expert on the selection and care of leopard geckos and can provide more advice on what to do if your leopard gecko stopped eating if you visit her website Leopard Gecko Guidelines.

Angular Cheilitis Cure

How to Heal Lip Cracks Naturally

If you would like to know how to heal lip cracks, firstly, it is important to identify just what the cause is. Although many people put sores and splitting of the lips down to changes in the weather, it is almost always a condition known as Angular Cheilitis.

Angular Cheilitis is a very common condition caused by a bacterial growth on the skin at the edges of the lips. It can be difficult to treat and many sufferers have the condition repeatedly over a number of years. Often, the severity increases as time goes on as the infection develops from being bacterial in nature to fungal, which can seem almost impossible to eradicate.

Although not life-threatening, the discomfort is persistent and everyday things we all take for granted such as eating, speaking and drinking become excruciatingly painful.

There can be various causes, and knowing how to heal lip cracks comes from a knowledge of what could be responsible. Angular Cheilitis is often caused by saliva dribbling out of the mouth. This can be almost unnoticeable and can be due to badly fitting dentures, pen biting or finger sucking. If any of these are likely causes, then take appropriate steps-get dentures corrected and try painting the ends of pens or fingernails with bitter tasting anti-nail biting solution. Once you stop the source of the moisture, this will help the area begin to heal.

For some people, an iron and vitamin deficiency could be the cause and taking the appropriate supplements will help in time. For those looking to learn how to heal lip cracks, the secret is to completely starve the bacteria or fungal infection of oxygen. Neither can survive without oxygen and this is therefore a surefire way to eliminate the condition quickly.

If you have had cracked lip corners or scabs for more than a couple of days, it is likely that the condition has taken hold. If you would like to look at pictures that can help you verify your own condition, you can download this simple and effective overnight cure from the Angular Chelitis Foundation.

This cure will dry out the condition within hours, providing fast and permanent relief. Please visit Angular Cheilitis Treatment to learn how to heal lip cracks naturally.

About the author: Annie writes about a range of health conditions and their natural solutions. One of her elderly relatives suffered from Angular Cheilitis and this is how she came about finding the solution which she now recommends.

Frequently Asked Questions

    How do i cure angular cheilitis?
    Last week, i found this weird sore in the corner of my mouth and i thought it would go away over night.

    But it didn’t, i had it for almost two weeks now and it’s been bothering me. I picked on it a little but it just won’t budge.

    I did some research online and found out what i had was angular cheilitis which is a bacteria infection in the corner of your mouth.

    The question is, how do i cure that?
    I prefer Home remedies, i’m trying not to go the doctors

    • ANSWER:
      Thank you for emailing me about your question. I hope I don’t discourage you when I tell you “Angela” is right. You may have a condition with symptoms very similar to those of angular chelitis and only a health care provider would know the difference.

      During your research you may have discovered that AC is a chronic condition and an inflammatory condition. Two weeks isn’t long enough to call what you have chronic. AC is either fungal or bacterial. Fungal AC is caused by a fungus called Candida while bacterial AC is often Staph is nature. Typically, there’s painful fissuring (cracking) at the corners of the mouth along with ulcers and draining pus. The skin at the mouth corners may appear soft, puffy and red or there may crusty sores.

      So if you actually do have AC, you wouldn’t be able to tell if it’s fungal or bacterial unless you cultured it. Often oral Candidiasis (thrush) will be present too. If you have a white or yellowish-white coating on your tongue, the insides of your cheeks or somewhere else in your oral cavity and the white coating can’t be removed easily, you may have the Candidiasis that is often associated with AC. In this case, I’d be more inclined to believe outright that you have AC.

      Do you have any risk factors? Do you have excessive saliva? Do you lick your lips often? Is your immune system impaired in any way? Do you have diabetes? Do you have iron-deficiency anemia? Other dietary deficiencies — B-12 or B-1 — can be the cause.

      Since you wish to treat this by yourself, you can try a B complex supplement, a protective lip balm, avoid licking or picking at your lips and use the link below to find out what else others have used to treat it.


      If you see no improvement in the next 10 days, or if you see a worsening, please consult your doctor. Thanks again for contacting me and I wish you success.

    What is the home remedy to cure angular cheilitis?
    I’ve read a bunch of articles that say there’s 2 ingredients used to make it but none of them tell me without having to pay . Can someone help me?

    • ANSWER:
      Angular Cheilitis can sometimes be caused by fungal disease or malabsorption of some vital nutrients like B2, Iron and Zinc. Go see your doctor and he/she will probably recommend an anti-fungal cream as well as vitamins shots. If you want a more natural way, you need to treat this two ways, to cover all your bases. First with an anti-fungal supplement like Fungal Defense from Garden of Life (this has several herbs like oregano, basil, lemongrass, olive leaf and cinnamon bark as well as yucca juice and garlic juice), you can buy this online at: http://www.cnnutrition.com/en/product.php?find=GOL-A04-FDE-01-01.

I looked on the internet and I found only those websites that charge money, except this one (linked under sources). Apparently, some guy posted (for free!) the information that is normally sold for . It basically says to wash your sores with dish soap and seal it with Vaseline. Check it out, it worked for me.

How To Cures For Bad Breath Due To Stomach Problems

There are many factors that could be the causes of bad breath, and many of the factors that could be causes of bad breath can be dealt with quickly and easily using simple techniques. Have you heard or read that there is a stomach bacteria that causes bad breath? It has been suggested that one of the causes of bad breath is Helicobacter pylori, the organism that causes stomach ulcers and ulcers in the duodenum. The trouble is, there are several factors that bring about bad breath and if stomach problems are involved, no amount of brushing your teeth or gargling large quantities of mouthwash will cure it.

On rare occasion, a condition other than stomach bacteria that cause bad breath seems to come from lower down in our body. There are some illnesses like cancers that can cause our breath to have an odd smell. Liver or kidney disease can cause unpleasant stomach breath. It is true then that bad breath could be a sign of other serious problem.

Acid reflux is actually the most likely candidate when it comes to bad breath problems originating from within. The condition is caused by a malfunctioning valve at the top of the stomach that allows acids and other digestive juices to enter the oral cavity, bringing with it a very acidic form of bad breath. While it may begin as a mere inconvenience, the fact is that acid reflux can literally dissolve the enamel on your teeth and leave them more susceptible to decay and rot.

How to Relieve of Bad Breath

Some stomach problems can be treated, some cannot. Ulcers, diabetes, liver diseases, acid reflux disease cause long-term stomach problems that can effect a person’s breath. Make sure you’re getting enough vitamins C and B, as well as zinc, since deficiencies of these can also cause halitosis.

Most people use a mouth wash purchased at a store. A simple rinse remedy is to dissolve about a quarter teaspoon or less of salt in lukewarm water and gargle. You may rinse your mouth only once a day and that is probably in the morning. It is a good idea to also rinse your mouth before going to bed. Since the mouth is usually closed while sleeping and anaerobic bacteria do not need oxygen, rinsing at night might be more effective.

The medical community and nutritionists have touted the proven benefits of drinking eight 8 oz. This is one of the best bad breath cure. glasses of water every day, but few of us actually do it. Constipation can be a direct result of not drinking enough water, and can cause bad breath because of putrefying food that remains stagnant in the digestive system. Cleansing the bowels by drinking water and eating fibrous foods ensures that food moves quickly through the stomach and intestines.

Frequently Asked Questions

    How do you cure Mouth Ulcers?
    Ive been having them in my gums for the entire weekend and they still bother me. I accidently brushed too hard on my gums that’s how o got them. I tried salt and water rinsing almost all the time but it just keeps hurting 20 minutes later, like if I lean my lip or if oo goes on them
    when I’m eating. How do I make it cure fast?

    • ANSWER:
      It is an ulcer (aka: canker sore) and it is viral in nature. You are right, you caused it by your blunt trauma with brushing.

      They will go away on their own,.. but to speed the process:

      Rinse with mouthwash. Tetracycline may be prescribed by your doctor in order to reduce pain as well as expedite healing time, as are mouth rinses containing dexamethasone.

      Use topical solutions. There are also over-the-counter topical medications such as amlexanox and fluocinonide. Debacterol is a good topical solution designed specifically to treat canker sores.

      Salt-water rinsing is still a good idea. Might be time for a trip to the pharmacy.

    Does anyone have cures for mouth ulcers? Or any known triggers for them?
    I have tried traditional medicine, natropathy, changing diet etc…

    • ANSWER:
      Buy over the counter malax or mylanta,
      swish around in the mouth and spit.

      or soak cotton in malax or mylanta and then tuck the cotton soaked inbetween gum and cheek where mouth ulcer is.

      source” my dentist”

      this is 100% to work or you can im me, and get your question refunded. works for me!

    How to cure painful mouth ulcers that wont go away!?
    I have been sick with flu for the past week or so and for about 5 days i have had bad mouth ulcers in my lower lip…. is there anything that can cause it and what can be done?

    • ANSWER:
      use salt as some of the people have already said.. get a dab of salt on your finger and then gently rub the ulcer, it will sting at first but soon after it will heal really quickly as the mineral components in salt kills off bacteria almost instantly.. or you can also use lemon juice for the same effect.

    Anybody know any cures for mouth ulcers, they are killing me!?
    bonjela doesn’nt work on me, also does anybody know why I have them could it be overindulgence at christmas to blame?

    • ANSWER:
      Coffee, spices, citrus fruit, nuts high in the amino acid arginine (especially walnuts), chocolate, and strawberries irritate canker sores and cause them in some people. A few other remedies that I can suggest:
      1. Apply a wet, black tea bag to the ulcer. Black tea contains tannin, an astringent (has pain-relieving ability).
      2. Dilute 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water and swish it around, or try the over-the-counter mouthwash called Folamint. It contains no stinging alcohol, but does contain healing aloe vera, folate, zinc, and vitamin C.
      3. In olden days, people used to take ear wax from their ears and apply it to the canker sore as a cure. :)
      4. There are also pastes that form a protective “bandage” over the sore. To get pastes like Orabase to work, dry the sore with one end of a cotton swab, then immediately apply the paste with the other end. It will work only on beginning sores, however.
      5. To avoid more canker sores in the future, if you see one starting, take 500 milligrams of vitamin C with bioflavonoids three times a day for the next three days.

    Can anybody tell me on how to cure mouth ulcer and why it happens to me at times?
    How to prevent it from recurrence? What food do I need to eat for prevetion of mouth ulcer? Please help me as I have mouth ulcer now.

    Cure for stomatitis aphtosa?

    • ANSWER:
      A stomatitis apthous is a canker sore. There is no real cure. They get better on their own without any treatment. Rinsing with salt water will help. Check here.




    what is/are the best and most effective cure for canker sore/stomatitis/apthous ulcer?
    i’m tired of these canker sores. i get deep and big ones, slightly bigger than a pencil’s eraser. and they last up to 2 weeks. i can’t eat well. i can’t work well. they’re just damn toooooooo painful.

    • ANSWER:
      I have braces and get them so I sympathize-well I used to get them before, I think some people are just prone to them. I was given the best advice by my Ortho and that was to take Zinc supplements-if your not allergic etc etc. The ulcer/canker sore is a symptom of a lack of zinc. I swear to you since taking them I havent had one, even where my braces rub. I used to get them when I was ill, I dont now. If you have them now, I would use Iglu. Its a weird paste that literally makes an Iglu over the ulcer and you cant feel it-painfree! You can eat and drink and everything it doesnt come off. It treats the ulcer as well which is great. Also rinse with salt water-I know disgusting but it works!

    what is the cure for a cat disease called “stomatitis”?
    we have ben giving the cat medications for over 10 months and still not muchimprovement.

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t think there is a “cure”. I have a 10 year old cat with that problem and she develops sores in her mouth that the vet has to treat periodically. She gets her teeth cleaned and those swellings relieved at least twice a year.

      Are you giving her anitbiotics for that length of time? Or something else. I’d like to know if you want to contact me. Amber gets a budisonide pill about twice every ten days. That’s a steroid that acts only in the intestinal tract as she has a lot of acid reflux and it cuts down on her vomiting.

    Treating lymphocitic plasmacitic stomatitis in cats?
    My 5 year old male cat was just diagnosed with stomatitis after he has spent the past two weeks hiding from us (we though he was just stressed and hiding from our new puppy), lost about 1/3 of his body weight, and was not eating or drinking. The vet gave him fluids and an atibiotic, and now we are waiting for it to clear up. In the meantime, we are observing him to see if it returns in the 4-6 week cycle that we were told this disease takes.

    My question is: Has anyone delt with this disease in their cat? It seems that the vets we talk to all say there is no real cure and that the treatments are controversial- some say extraction, some say periodontal maintenence, some say just trying to maintain the pain when it occurs. Is there a good way to maintain the pain? Has anyone had any luck with using certain products or methods to help their cat? We dont want to extract all his teeth, and frankly can’t spend 00 to have perio surgery done on his teeth. Any suggestins or information would be much appretiated!
    Our cat is not depressed, as I stated before- he has been to the vet and has been diagnosed with stomatitis, not depression.
    Medically related ansers only, please.

    • ANSWER:
      Two things for you to check into – have the vet test your cat for Bartonella and the calici virus. Both of these can cause stomatitis like lesions in the mouth, throat, and nose. It’s pretty new research that is linking the Bartonella to the lesions, the calici is pretty common. Both are simple to test for, although the Bartonella test isn’t terribly cheap.

      Another option is steroids – although this tends to be the last resort, as long term use of steroids has many side effects, including the risk of diabetes.

      Many vets still think that pulling the teeth is really the best option. Stomatitis is really an auto-immune disease, where the cat sort of develops an allergy to their teeth. Pulling the teeth – while it sounds drastic – provides significant relief in many cats. Just cleaning the teeth and removing all the placque and gingivities tends to just be borrowing time. Extracting all of the teeth isn’t as bad as it sounds – the cat has a recovery time of about a week, generally a pain patch, and then will eat canned food. The vet will check the inflammation in the mouth and gums, and prescribe steroids if it isn’t going away soon enough, but generally it works very well.

      My male Seal point Siamese just had the last of his teeth pulled due to stomatitis, and I had two foster cats with it as well. In the case of my Siamese, we’ve been getting him yearly dentals, but that was no longer good enough. His mouth and gums now look great! It was a rough first week, but it’s surely better than the pain he had been having with all the lesions on his gums.

      Again, other than doing the testing for Bartonella and calici, and trying steroids, you don’t have too many options other than pulling the teeth. The periodontal maintenance just buys time, and ends up being very expensive as you keep paying and paying, and generally end up extracting the teeth in the end anyway :o(

What Causes Cracks At The Side Of The Mouth?

If you are wondering what causes cracks at the side of the mouth, you will be interested to learn that these rarely appear as a result of having a cold or flu. The other common misconception is that these can occur due to extremes of temperature.

Now it is very true that this condition can be aggravated by the factors above, but the usual reason why people have these painful cracks at the side of the mouth is a result of the very common condition known as angular cheilitis.

Millions of people are affected by angular cheilitis every year. Although most are elderly or very young, anybody can be affected and this can be extremely painful, with many having repeated outbreaks over the course of a year.

As with any condition affecting the mouth, healing can be very difficult. The constant cracking and bleeding every time you try to do everyday tasks, such as eating or speaking can be a nightmare. As well as the pain, sufferers also have to cope with the physical appearance of angular cheilitis which can look very unpleasant, particularly when scabbing happens.

Knowing what causes cracks at the side of the mouth can help you learn how to treat it. The condition usually starts by the area at the corners of the mouth becoming moist due to dribbling, ill-fitting dentures, pen biting, finger sucking or nutritional deficiencies. What happens is that the constant moisture creates the perfect conditions for bacteria to grow and within no time, the infection becomes fungal and then extremely difficult to eradicate. Once it has reached this stage, the only way to eliminate it completely is to dry out the area altogether as neither bacteria nor fungus can thrive without moisture or oxygen.

There is an extremely fast-acting natural home remedy which guarantees almost instant relief from the pain and discomfort caused by angular cheilitis. In addition, by following this remedy, you will be completely free of the splits and cracks overnight.

About the author: Annie writes about a range of health conditions and their natural solutions. One of her elderly relatives suffered from Angular Cheilitis and this is how she came about finding the solution which she now recommends.

Diagnosis for Herpes

Primary orofacial herpes is readily identified by clinical examination of persons with no previous history of lesions and contact with an individual with known HSV-1 infection. The appearance and distribution of sores in these individuals typically presents as multiple, round, superficial oral ulcers, accompanied by acute gingivitis. Adults with non-typical presentation are more difficult to diagnose.

Prodromal symptoms that occur before the appearance of herpetic lesions help differentiate HSV symptoms from the similar symptoms of other disorders, such as allergic stomatitis. When lesions do not appear inside the mouth primary orofacial herpes is sometimes mistaken for impetigo, a bacterial infection. Common mouth ulcers (aphthous ulcer) also resemble intraoral herpes, but do not present a vesicular stage.

Genital herpes can be more difficult to diagnose than oral herpes since most HSV-2-infected persons have no classical symptoms. Further confusing diagnosis, several other conditions resemble genital herpes, including lichen planus, atopic dermatitis, and urethritis. Laboratory testing is often used to confirm a diagnosis of genital herpes.

Laboratory tests include: culture of the virus, direct fluorescent antibody (DFA) studies to detect virus, skin biopsy, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to test for presence of viral DNA. Although these procedures produce highly sensitive and specific diagnoses, their high costs and time constraints discourage their regular use in clinical practice.

Serological tests for antibodies to HSV are rarely useful to diagnosis and not routinely used in clinical practice, but are important in epidemiological studies. Serologic assays cannot differentiate between antibodies generated in response to a genital versus or an oral HSV infection, and as such cannot confirm the site of infection. Absence of antibody to HSV-2 does not exclude genital infection because of the increasing incidence of genital infections caused by HSV-1.

Cures for herpes only relieve the symptoms but do not eradicate the virus. HSV infections are often referred to in terms of the body part afflicted. For example, herpes that occur around the mouth and face are commonly known as or oral herpes (also known as cold sores), herpes that infect the genital tract are referred to as genital herpes. Herpes cures are being developed but so far, the window of opportunity for their effective use is small.

After a person becomes infected with HSV, the virus moves to sensory nerves in the ganglia. Once there, it seems to reside, at which point herpes cure is no longer feasible. Finding the cure for herpes is really tough. Unlike HPV (the virus that causes warts), which is satisfied and content with simply nestling into skin tissue, the herpes virus opts to burrow deep into the system. Cures for herpes would have to do the same.

The virus eventually reactivates, resurfacing on the skin at regular or irregular intervals. On reactivation, it travels down the ganglia back to the original site of the infection, or in close proximity, and causes an outbreak. Outbreaks generally cause pronounced trauma and distress, especially for genital herpes. Cure of the symptoms then becomes a necessity.

Herpes infections are much more common than most people realize. Yet strangely, herpes cures are among the most difficult dermatological treatments to have success with. Sure, there are antiviral drugs available, which can help, but they take time to process through the digestive tract to have a full systemic effect on herpes. A cure is needed immediately once an outbreak appears. Pills often take time to take effect and are not a cure for herpes virus infections when full blown.

HSVCurative is used specifically to treat HSV1 and HSV2 infections and acts as a curative agent against both these strains of herpes. It exhibits a pronounced anti-herpetic activity against HSV1 and HSV2 and, unlike other cures for herpes, actually kills these viruses upon exposure regardless of location on the body.

HSVCurative contains certified organic medicinal plant extracts and antiviral essential oils which cause cellular death to HSV1 and HSV2 in scientific studies. HSVCurative has a rather remarkable array of pharmacological and biochemical properties which inactivate and destroy the herpes virus for unprecedented results compared to other cures for herpes.

Very recent studies using advanced DNA techniques have shown that HSVCurative extracts indeed destroy HSV1 and HSV2, the common causes of oral and genital herpes. A cure of these viruses has been elusive until recently. To learn more, please go to http://www.bcured.net.

How To Cure Cold Sores Overnight -Cure Cold Sores Naturally In 3 Days ?

How To Cure Cold Sores Overnight -Cure Cold Sores Naturally In 3 Days more about How To Cure Cold Sores Overnight -Cure Cold Sores Naturally In 3 Days

Cold sore: A small sore situated on the face or in the mouth that causes pain, burning, or itching before bursting and crusting over. The favorite locations are on the lips, chin or cheeks and in the nostrils. Less frequented sites are the gums or roof of the mouth (the palate).

Cold sores, also commonly called fever blisters, are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1. The virus lies latent (dormant) in the body and is reawakened (reactivated) by factors such as stress, sunburn, or fever from a wide range of infectious diseases including colds. Recurrences are less common after age 35. Sunscreen (SPF 15 or more) on the lips prevents recurrences of herpes from sunburn.

The virus is highly contagious when fever blisters are present. It is spread by kissing. Children become infected by contact with someone who has a fever blister and then they spread the virus by rubbing their cold sore and touching other children. A person with fever blisters should be careful not to touch the blisters and spread the virus to new sites, such as the eyes or genitals.

There is no cure for fever blisters. Medications that can relieve some of the pain and discomfort include ointments that numb the blisters, antibiotics that control secondary bacterial infections, and ointments that soften the crests of the sores. Acyclovir, an antiviral drug, prevents the herpes simplex virus from multiplying and, in pill form, has been reported to reduce the symptoms and frequency of recurrence.

Natural Treatment

This friendly bacteria is excellent at removing cold sores within 24 hours by feeding on the bacteria overgrowth causing the sore. The most potent strain for relieving cold sores is Bulgariacus. Simply open two pills, pour contents into 1 teaspoon of milk and drink.

It has long been known that garlic has strong antibiotic properties. Crush a garlic clove and wrap it in a piece of cheesecloth. Squeeze the cloth between your fingers until it is moistened with the garlic juice. Apply the cheesecloth to the cold sore and hold until it stops stinging. Repeat this every hour throughout the day and the sore will be cleared up by morning.

    How do i get rid of Angular Cheilitis over night?
    If anyone knows how i can get rid of Angular Cheilitis over night, please do inform me as soon as possible. I have had horrible cracking, soreness, redness, pussing, and flaking over the corner of the right side of my mouth and i need to know how i may get rid of this.
    Please & Thank You For Any Answers or Suggestions!!!
    I do truly appreciate it.

    • ANSWER:
      actually sounds like a bacterial infection, get a pcr blood test to chk for bacterial dna .

    How do i cure angular cheilitis?
    I have had this problem for a year now. I have had times when i can get rid of the dry crusty stuff and the redness, but never the actual ‘slits’ at the side of the mouth. Nothing works – i have tried cymex, hydrocortisone, regular cold sore creams, and even athletes foot. All the natural remedies like rubbing cucumber and aloe vera hasent made these slits go away. It is so embarrasing! What can i do?

    • ANSWER:
      Angular cheilitis can be a sign of Iron defiencency. I would suggest seeing a doctor to check for this.

    Does camphor or campho phenique relieve or cure angular cheilitis?
    For about a week now I have noticed the little cracks and redness developing in the corners of my mouth, after careful research (intense googling) I have come to realize that my condition is most likely angular cheilitis. I have tried a number of remedies and treatments to solve this problem. I even tried the home remedy offered on several angular cheilitis websites (found the remedy for free luckily). My mom suggested I try using campho-phenique with drying action on the sores followed by lysine coldstick. I am wondering if this is an effective method to resolve my angular cheilitis. While the camphor does give me pain relief and seem to dry out the area I want to know if it will in fact resolve the cheilitis. Also is applying the lysine stick a good idea in addition. Any ideas to help relieve this irritation would be great but I really want to know if I can use the camphor and lysine without having to actually go to a doctor for something which seems so trivial and I have caught on to so early? I do have lesions which bleed if I open my mouth to wide especially in the early morning when a crust like scab appears to form around the little cuts.
    In addition it is to my knowledge after researching angular chelitis that drying out the area would be beneficial based upon the causes of angular cheilitis (fungal or bacterial infections are the main causes), so my question is not so much about my lips drying up but whether camphor would be helpful for angular cheilitis?

    • ANSWER:
      Your lips might just be drying out because it’s natural for them to, just like mine. I suggest using that medicated chap-stick and use it every time you think your lips are drying up.

    If I take medication for angular cheilitis will my extremely dry lips go away as well?
    I’m currently taking medication for angular cheilitis (two different ones to solve the problem) and I am wondering whether or not my dry chapped lips would go away as well. My doctor told me the rashes/redness around my mouth should go away within a week, but I am wondering if my chapped lips will go away once the treatment is done. I noticed around December of 07 that my lips became extremely chapped, and after that the dryness never went away – even after using much Vaseline/chap stick to moisturize it. Since I was told that dried lips are also a symptom of angular cheilitis that would mean my lips would go back to normal right? Cause I’m not sure and I really wish I didn’t have to carry around Vaseline where every I go.

    • ANSWER:
      it depends upon the meds you are on, and the etiology of your chapped lips-wait and see, however, you may want to change to chap stick, personally, if find that a lot more effective than vaseline-also, if you are a mouth breather, you may need chronic treatment for chapped lips…good luck.

    please tell me if there is anyone in india who got “cheilitis” cured?
    Dear Sir/Madam,

    My sister is sufferring from cheilitis for 2-3 yrs now. I think it is exfolitiva cheilitis because the skin on the lips peel. It does not fall automatically after some days but it stays on the lip and grows upto a certain amount until removed wth the help of scissors.

    I’m suffering for almost the past one year. I underwent two surgeries under a span of two months last year. Both surgeries involved the use of general anesthesia. I’m 24 and she is 20.

    As soon as the first surgery was over my nose was stuffed with cotton. I wasn’t allowed to drink water for certain amount of time. I believe that the surgery, and the dehydration caused due to the non intake of water, caused my lips to become dry and red. I wiped off my lip after i noticed the redness on it.

    The lip would then peel slighty every 3rd day. I then underwent another surgery.

    As for my sister, she used to have dry and chapped lips ever since she was a child. We never took it seri
