My lips look like they have exfoliative cheilitis but I think I got it from kissing a girl- can it be contagious?

My lips look like they have exfoliative cheilitis but I think I got it from kissing a girl- can it be contagious?

Unlikely: Cheilitis can have infectious causes such as candida (usually at the corners) and strep, but candida usually affects those with compromised immune systems (such as people with diabetes, hiv, or taking chemotherapy), and strep usually is a secondary infection if there is broken or irritated skin. I believe that the chances of developing cheilitis from kissing is low. ...Read more

I have angular cheilitis in the corner of my mouth, my doctor gave me nystatin & triamcinolone cream. Should I avoid kissing/oral sex until it clears?

Well...: Angular cheilitis means the skin at the corner of the mouth is broken, cracked, and inflamed. Kissing would mean rubbing, stretching, and sucking on that broken skin. It is likely that rubbing, stretching, and sucking on an area of broken skin anywhere on the body would interfere with proper healing. ...Read more

Lip augmentation: Dermal fillers such as Restylane (dermal fillers) and juvederm are a great way to give temporary augmentation to the lips if you are seeking treatment for thin lips. More permanent procedures such as the "permalip" implant or fat/smas grafting are also possible, but in my experience it is wise to make sure you are happy with the achievable results demostrated by a temporary solution before proceding with an implnt. ...Read more

Am I a freak? Coz I feel hot & horny when I see two men making out? Plus I love kissing women's lips. But I'm straight & only get attracted to men.

Nope, you're normal: While there is one more common form of sexuality aka heterosexuality, in this day & age, we now accept all forms of sexuality ie homosexuality, bisexuality & transgender, the latter thanks to Kaitlyn Jenner & the movie, Danish Girl. But what's more important than a label is that you accept yourself/sexuality & are happy/satisfied in your (sexual) relationship. ...Read more
