Discussions that mention hydrocortisone

Open to All Other Health Topics board


My lips have been swelling and cracking just in the corners for about five years. this comes and goes fortnightly. I've seen my doctor about it numerous times but he's been no help at all.
The only thing i've found that helps at all is mild hydrocortisone, but when i stop using it the corners will start to crack agin within a few days.
Any help would be really appreciated, as this problem is driving me insane.
Thanks in advance.
