Why dose the skin on my lips look bluish and peel?

Thin and oil free: The skin on the lips is different from skin on the rest of your face. It appears bluish because capillaries and very small veins called venules all together give the appearance of more circulation than the rest of the facial skin. The peeling happens because there are no oil gland in the lips causing them to be chronically dry. Regular use of chap stick or something similar will decrease peeling. ...Read more

Please tell me, could a chemical peel cause chapped lips?

Peel and chapped lip: By its nature, the peel removes older damaged skin. It reconstitutes from deeper skin structures. The new skin is often delicate, tender, and dry at first. If not properly moisturized, it can feel chaffed, dry, and irritated. Hopefully you did not do your own peel. Moisturize with a petroleum-based ointment like Aquephor. Medicated ointments may be the cause of irritation and inflammation. ...Read more

My lips are very wrinkly when I peel them they become smooth and red bt again after one or two days the condition is same? What shud I do?

Stop the cycle: I think they look smooth and red because they are a bit swollen and inflamed. This leads to the later peeling, so it's kind of a vicious cycle. It would be better not to peel, but keep them moist with plain Vaseline applied several times a day. Avoid licking lips -- saliva is irritating to lips and can dry them out. ...Read more

If my lips are chapped or if I bite my lips and peel skin is it possible to have a white hallow spot from healing. I also dip once in awhile?

If my lips are chapped or if I bite my lips and peel skin is it possible to have a white hallow spot from healing. I also dip once in awhile?

Don't Wait: Worrying about this spot will not help you at all. You should see a dentist and have it checked. There is no online advice that can take the place of an oral exam by a trained medical professional. The sooner you have this checked out, the better. If it is a problem, it can be treated more easily. If it is not a problem, you will feel less anxious about it. ...Read more

Dryness?: Hi Carlos,
Sorry to hear about your lips. If you mean the outside of your lips are dry and chapped, the first line of therapy is usually topical moisturizers such as "chap stick" and petroleum jelly. It also helps to keep your body hydrated by drinking enough water and if you are exposed to sun, to consider a lip balm that contains sunscreen. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have psoriasis. I do have it under control with over-the-counter methods. However, my lips constantly peel. What over-the-counter treatment can help?

If you aren't getting any relief with otc meds, talk to your dermatologist about using a mild topical steroid - you can also find these otc, but it's good to talk with your doc first before trying steroid treatments on the face or other sensitive areas. ...Read more
