Question Yeast infection--on lips????

Hey everyone!!!! I need help...I get this problem where my lips flare and flake, and the sides of my lips crack and I can hardly eat(so painful). Anyone heard of having a yeast type infection around lips, etc.??? Sounds strange.... but any help would be great!!!!!! Thanks

Re: Yeast infection--on lips????

My husband gets this from time to time and the dermatologist has prescribed Lotrimin. It is all due to 'slobbering' when you sleep - seems the saliva acids tend to 'eat away' at your skin. There is also another medication you can use, but I cannot remember the name of it. The Lotrimin seems to work for him though.

Soar-
You are correct- and the Lotrimin cream works well for me- it could also be that you have a B vitamin deficiency- try taking a multi-vitamin, seems that when I do this, it decreases the occurances.

Good Luck!

Thanks soooo much for your responses....I am currently being treated for a vaginal yeast infection so we shall see what happens with my lips as the other starts to go away.
