irritated lips how do you treat it?

1 Answer:

Hello Finda, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Irritation on the lips or also known as cheilitis can be caused by many possibilities, some of which are:

dry lips (for example due to cold air, insufficient humidity, lip licking, or dehydration)
contact dermatitis (for example, allergy or irritation due to the use of certain lipsticks or creams on the lips)
infections (eg herpes simplex infection, bacterial skin infection / impetigo, yeast infection)
excess sun exposure on the lips
side effects of certain drugs (eg vitamin A / isotretinoin)
other causes, such as smoking, inflammatory gastrointestinal diseases such as Crohn's, use of braces / braces, certain nutritional deficiencies

You should first find out the cause of the irritation on your lips. Some things you can do:

try to drink more fluids (drink at least 2-3 liters a day)
Avoid the habit of licking your lips
Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol
Make sure you consume foods with balanced nutrition, increase the consumption of vegetables and fruits
If inflammation occurs after you apply certain lipsticks or creams to your lips, stop using them immediately.
If you feel your lips are dry, for example because you are in a lot of air-conditioned rooms or are in a cold environment, use a lip balm.
Avoid direct sun exposure on the lips.
For the time being, avoid using lipstick

If the inflammation on your lips does not improve, it's a good idea to see a dermatologist for further evaluation and management.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
