Forum home Hair & make-up


Now and again (although getting more and more frequent) the corners of my mouth get really itchy and then crack and get really sore! It's not the same as a coldsore... no tingling. But really odd. When it heals it almost leaves a scar that takes a while to go away. When it's happening I have to be careful with how I eat, how I smile and laughing is a definite no no! I keep using the normal lip repair creams which sometimes help... just wondered if anyone else gets this??? I hope just hope it doesn't happen for our wedding. Can't even cover up with make up as it just goes crusty and draws more attention to it!!!

    forgive me for being a little blint but could it be thrush that is not healing?

    if so them creams will make it worse. Have you been to see a doctor when its happening?

    I get very dry lips alway have and cant use anything because I get cold sores if I do.

    I would go to doctors next time its happening they my be able to give you advice

    good luck

    Oh my goodness!! I have no idea.... ! some creams do seem to make it worse actually. It does heal up though, and then just comes back! Calling Dr in morning. Thanks for advice. Feel quite embarrassed now!!!!!
