Allergic Vaseline Put Lips Mouth Swollen
Not plain Vaseline: Plain vaseline is inert with respect to the immune system so will not cause any skin reaction. If it was flavored or had other additives, they rarely can cause a reaction. Most likely the swollen lips are unrelated to the vaseline.See 1 more doctor answer

Lip lesion remedy: Following an illness, some people may get ulcers or sores in or around their mouth. Your symptoms sound like you may have a herpetic lesion.

My daughter is allergic to vaseline based on her lips she used her friends lipsil now her lips are sore and swollen what can I buy to help her plzz?
Several options: Sorry to hear about the symptoms. Vaseline is rarely a great option for lip therapy. On the other hand, non-petroleum based moisturizers can help, in addition to antihistamines that may reduce the soreness/swelling. I like vanicream or cetaphil as moisturizers, and for antihistamines I like the non-drowsy options -- Allegra (fexofenadine) is a good choice, and it can last for 12-24 hours depending on the dose.
Help. I wake up and my lips are swollen, dry, but have water blisters, this happens over and over again. All I do is put Vaseline on my lips?
Unlikely: You may have reacted to another ingredient in the lip balm, not vaseline or you may have reacted to something you ingested, either food or medicine. Write down what you had over the past hour, take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and head to the er. Worried this may extend further to your tongue.
I was trimming my pubs with a sciossors & I accidentally cut my lip on the left sid. The skin is hanging of, it a smal cut & it was bleeding a litle but it stopped. Can I put vaseline? Will it heal with it?
Pressure on wound: Put a small bandaid on it and if is still bleeding in the morning then see your doctor. If it is bleeding a lot then go to the er to get it to stop. Cover it with pressure and keep pressure for at least 20 minutes then keep bandaid and slowly remove it gently more pressure should get the bleeding to stop. It will heal but get it checked.

2yr old dry skin above lip and top lip irritated and or dry. Regular cetaphyl atopic stings. Is it ok to put vaseline? it's red, irritated. Other?
Vaseline is ok: Persistent dry or chapped lips is lip eczema, which can be treated like skin eczema, using Hydrocortisone cream plus vaseline or aquaphor to retain moisture. Sometimes, lip sunscreen chemicals can cause an allergic reaction on the lips. Other times, a person is a primary lip-licker (it's his habit). Once cracked, lips get irritated by routine foods, juices, & saliva. A doctor can sort things out.See 1 more doctor answer
can a child be allergic to petroleum in Vaseline or chapstick because my son broke out in hives and had swelling around his mouth eyes and other area?
Couple things: It's very unusual to be allergic to petrolatum jelly, though it is occlusive and cause itching. Many people are allergic to lip balms of all kinds. But that causes allergic contact dermatitis; e.g. swelling, redness, then peeling over days...usually not "hives", meaning urticaria, that comes and goes over hours. And not in areas not applied (like the eyelids).

Cracks in corners of mouth for a few days. Tried blister, lip balm, vaseline. None have helped and seems like it's made it worse. Help! What do I use?
Two creams: Try mixing an over the counter cortisone cream and anti-fungal cream in equal amounts. Applied at several times a day. If that does not work I would see a dermatologist.
I burnt my tips on hot tea. Internal mouth blisters. A lot of pain. Been icing. Applied vaseline and neosporin to lips. What to do?
Perioral Dermatitis: The factor most frequently reported in association with the occurrence of perioral dermatitis (POD) is topical corticosteroid use. The treatment of POD involves the discontinuation of topical corticosteroids and the avoidance of skin irritants. Although patients may eventually improve without additional interventions, pharmacologic therapy is often instituted using pimecrolimus.
