My bottom lip has gotten swollen and gotten blisters from my girlfriend biting my bottom lip too hard. Is it something I should be worried about?

My bottom lip has gotten swollen and gotten blisters from my girlfriend biting my bottom lip too hard. Is it something I should be worried about?

Yes: Repeated damage to a bottom lip will cause changes in the lip and lead to a distorted appearance. If just one episode, the lip most likely will return to normal over time. If said girlfriend continues to bite, one might consider offering her a more durable part of the body to bite on... but it's hard to find a location that can withstand repeated biting.

I bit my lip about a week ago. It bled and then I ended up biting it again. Now all blistered and ulcered. Any pain relief, absolutely killing me?

I bit my lip about a week ago. It bled and then I ended up biting it again. Now all blistered and ulcered. Any pain relief, absolutely killing me?

Yes: If the part you're biting is the 'wet' part of your lip, try hloraseptic liquid. If on the 'dry' part, use benzocaine cream or ointment See your dentist for a night splint which will keep you from biting your lip in the first place.

How can I stop nail and lip biting?

How can I stop nail and lip biting?

Difficult!: Nail biting is a very difficult habit to break. One thing you could do is have your child keep his hands covered with gloves to break the cycle of nail biting. Gently removing the childs fingers from their mouth each time you notice them biting is another method. In pharmacies, if you can find it, is nail biters liquid. This is a very bitter liquid painted on to the nails, and discourages biting.

Red spot on lip caused from biting it?

What makes red spots: Could be an area of trauma, like biting, or an early form of oral cancer. Red spots are a particular concern. If its directly related to a spot you are always biting then its likely a chronic inflammation area and may stay red as long as reinjury occurs. To be safe, have it checked periodically by a physician or dentist.
