Does Anyone Else Have A Problem With Dry , Blistering Lips?
0

6 posts in this topic

Before I was diagnosed, I kept getting blisters on my lips. I thought that maybe the sun was having some weird effect. Once I was diagnosed, I realized that my lipstick was probably the culprit. I threw away all of my lipstick - but am still bothered with dry and sometimes blistering lips. I'm coming up on 2 months gluten free. Since I had no "classic" symptoms before diagnosis, I have no idea how well I am following the diet. I finally, just today, replaced my face moisturizer. Anyone else with lip problems??

blisters sound more reminesent of an allergy.

Before my diet change, however, i used to get major cracked lips. I still do, on occasion, but not to the degree that i did before. I have never put anything on them.

I didn't really have blistering lips, but they were always chapped. Then I developed a rash at the corners of my mouth. I was told this was caused by a Vit b deficiency. Since going gluten-free (and adding a B Complex supplement) my lip problems have gone away. Before I was constantly applying Chapstick, now I occasionally use Vaseline, but that's it. I do noticed if I'm glutened my rash on the corners of my mouth comes back.

Vitamin deficiency? Lips can be dry and cracked if deficient in B vitamins.

Does it seem to have any relationship to environment? Does it happen only in certain seasons, or all the time?

I would also, like the other poster, possibly look toward allergies.

I will second the vitamin B defieciency. My nutrition book say that a B deficiency will cause chapped lips. My lips get chapped in spring and fall. Tuesday I am having a nutrient absorbing test, so I will perhsps find out if I am absorbing B's well. I always wondered how I could eat so much vitamin B in bread and be deficient. I am sure there are other causes like sunburn or extreme weather.

Not sure what your other symptoms are, but if the lips are blistering and they HURT, it sounds like a pervasive cold sore infection.
