Please explain, and is there a medicine or how to cure both? Thank you
Hello, good afternoon Juanelhs ...
Swollen gums near graham teeth can be caused by several possibilities, such as the buildup of plaque on the molars, inflammation of the gums (gingivitis), friction on the gums that recurs (for example due to improper placement of false teeth, friction with braces, etc.), smoking habits, vitamin C deficiency, use of toothpaste and certain mouthwashes that cause sensitive gums, and certain obtan drugs such as anti-epileptic drugs, corticosteroids, hormonal contraception, and blood pressure-lowering drugs. To be sure, you need a direct examination by the dentist. So we suggest that you see your dentist. Handling of complaints of swollen gums will vary depending on the cause. For example, if the cause is dental plaque, then the treatment is by cleaning plaque / tartar. If the cause is friction due to the use of dentures or inadequate braces, the doctor may consider replacing the device.
Regarding dry and sore lips, indeed one of them can be caused by dehydration (lack of fluids) which can occur due to the habit of consuming less water. In addition, dry lips can also be caused by:
the weather is too cold, dry, or windy (like in an air-conditioned room), too often exposed to the sun habit of licking the lips using cosmetic lips (like lipstick) that contain certain chemicals that cause irritation to the skin of the lips, such as the contents of perfume, coloring, preservatives , etc. Allergy or irritation due to the ingredients found in toothpaste or face cream used (especially if you often use face creams near the lips) lack of iron and vitamin B
Dry lip complaints are not a common complaint due to drug allergy, but if you are referring to dry lips due to allergic reactions with topical medications that are used around the lips, then, according to what we have explained above, this can it just happened ..
Here are some ways you can do to deal with dry lips:
use petroleum jelly on the skin of the lips regularly every time they move and or each will sleep at night, besides that you can also use natural ingredients such as coconut oil, olive oil, or honey as a natural lip mask use lip moisturizer that contains SPF drink water a minimum of 2 liters per day avoid licking the lips do not force out the skin of the peeled lips avoid too long in an air-conditioned room or avoid direct exposure to air conditioning consumption of fruits and vegetables that contain lots of water, such as watermelons, pears, etc.
If after you have done the methods above but the complaints still bother you, we recommend that you see a doctor to find out the exact cause of the complaint and how to handle it accordingly.
That's all, hopefully it helps
