Does it resolve with sleep? ...Read more

I'm a singer and I have been experiencing tightness and a bloody taste in my throat whenever I talk or sing. It hurts my throat to move my head, too.

Need Lip-o Suction?: Could be a little mucoid cyst. Ever bite your lip? Even if not, they can come up out of nowhere. Could get bigger if you fool with it.

White gunk on corner of both side of lips. I've been noticing past few days, after talking a lot or chewing gum for a few hours. Also I do not consume or drink much water, mainly soda.

White gunk on corner of both side of lips. I've been noticing past few days, after talking a lot or chewing gum for a few hours. Also I do not consume or drink much water, mainly soda.

Dry mouth/dry saliva: Water is vital to the body. The symptoms of 'white material' accumulating after hours of speaking and not taking in enough water suggest dehydration and desiccation (drying out) of mouth secretions (saliva). Soda has no nutritional value at all - please avoid the empty calories and chemicals. Water is what nature intended -- after all we are two-thirds H2O. I don't advocate gum chewing either. ...Read more

so try to relax, either by meditation, or by any other way that will make you less stressful.
hydrate well, and take potassium supplements like orange juice, and banana.
exercise your facial muscle on and off during your relaxation exercise by making many motion with your lip. ...Read more

I talked to a homeless man who spitted when he talked. I had crack lips and a bit of blood. He might have HIV, could I get HIV if he's spit got on me?

No worries: HIV is not transmitted by saliva, even with blood. Saliva kills HIV, which is one of the reasons kissing and oral sex carry little or no risk. Also, the frequency of HIV is no higher in homeless persons than anyone else. So don't worry about it! ...Read more

May be lip eczema: Persistent dry, tight, or bumpy lips can be lip eczema, which may be treated like skin eczema, using hydrocortisone cream (twice a day for 1 week) plus Vaseline or Aquaphor to retain moisture.
