The Cause Of The Lips Feel Stiff, Hot, Sore, Numb And Itchy?
hello doctor, I want to ask. My lips have been stiff, hot, sore, numb, and sometimes itchy, but not swollen and not peeling. But my lips feel dry and look like little pioneering spots. What’s wrong with my lips? And what should I do to make my lips healthy? Thank you, doctor.
Hello Kiandra, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading the complaints you mentioned above, there are a number of circumstances that might cause complaints to you, such as:
Herpes simplex virus infection in the lips (herpes)
Shingles (smallpox) on the lips
Hand-Foot-and-Mouth Disease (HFMD / Singapore flu)
Lack of certain vitamins
Allergy medication persists
and several other circumstances
To find out the cause of your complaint, you should consult a doctor. Next you may be asked to undergo some tests such as blood tests and others to determine the main cause of the complaint. The most appropriate therapy will be adjusted depending on the main cause.
In the meantime, you should keep your body well hydrated by drinking enough water, eat foods that are nutritionally balanced, can also be helped by using lipbalm if the lips feel very dry. Avoid peeling dry skin on the lips by force (self exfoliation) and also avoid using topical medication or other drugs taken without certain advice from the doctor. When accompanied by fever or aches in the joints, it can be helped by taking paracetamol according to the packaging dose. If the main cause has been resolved, then in general your lips will return to normal health.
I hope this helps.
