Home Remedies- Preventing Angular Cheilitis

Aug 1, 2008
Lips can easily become sensitive and dry because unlike most parts of our bodies lips cannot secret oils that protect them from harsh conditions. Situations like wind, cold, dry heat, or any other extreme in weather can have a really big effect on your lips. It is times like these that cause severe chapping or cracking of the lips and this causes us to be very tempted to lick our lips. Licking your lips is probably the worst thing you can do, it may cause temporary relief but in the end it will more than likely worsen the situation. Licking your lips encourages things like angular cheilitis.

Angular cheilitis can be a very painful condition. Your lips crack, become very chapped and even bleed at times. The exact reason it is caused varies from person to person but things such as ill fitting dentures, vitamin or iron deficiency or simple neglect of the lips can cause angular cheilitis.

When Angular Cheilitis occurs lips become sensitive and uncomfortable, making you very aware of your lips constantly. There are some ways you can relieve the pain depending on the severity of the case. First if your condition is very painful and getting worse seek an actual product that treats angular cheilitis. There are many good natural options you can choose from but get help from someone who knows the condition.

If Angular Cheilitis is in the beginning stages then here are a few techniques you can use to avoid it.
One, apply olive oil to your lips. This will help replace the oils that are missing, although it is not the same oil your body would put out to defend itself it can be very moisturizing. Two, if lips are really cracked rub unsalted butter on the cracks. This may seem weird but the butter will act as a soother for these cracks. Make sure though that it is unsalted butter because the smallest amount of salt will cause great pain to an open wound.

Third, rubbing vitamin E oil on lips can be another way to help because it helps replace a vitamin defiency. Although it is always better to change your diet and get the vitamins you need then rubbing the vitamin straight on it. If you change your diet the effects will last much longer then the vitamin E rub.

And fourth if you need instant relief and you don't have any of the above on head try rubbing a cucumber on your lips. The moisture from the cucumber will transfer over to your lips and provide some relief for at least a small amount of time. All in all just take care of our lips and the best way to do so is to care for them before there is an issue.
