Hi I have an issue where the area around my lips gets sore everytime I lick them it's a habit I just want to understand it more. Green vaseline helps.

Saliva: Saliva is very irritating outside the mouth. Apply vaseline or Aquaphor or chapstick very frequently. Consider consulting a psychologist. Behavior therapy can be effective to control OCD compulsive behavior. When it is less irritated you will lick less. When you stop licking the skin will heal. ...Read more

I have a soretred patch at the corner of my mouth, it doesn't feel like a cold sore but vaseline isn't helping.

Angular chelitis: If the ends of you lips overlap as you sleep, saliva may accumulate there. This will cause a rash or sore. Do you sleep on that side? A combination of a mild cortisone cram and an antifungal cream applied twice a day should help. If not, see a dermatologist. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

How come when I apply vaseline to my scalp it gives my scalp bumps and makes it sore? I thought petroleum is non Comedogenic? I have very dry scalp.

Hi I have looks like cuts on my upper vagina sore looks cracked put cream on and Vaseline doesn't seem to help as it itches also could this be shaving?

Possibly: Possibly a herpes simplex infection, as blisters can form into small crack-like lesions. If it is in the area that you shave - then it may be related to shaving the skin. Without a one on one evaluation - am not able to provide accurate dx. ...Read more

Had minor mole removal on arm 3 days ago required 3 stitches. My arm feels sore. Is this normal? How many times should I change bandage n put vaseline

My bottom lip is chapped, the skin that connects to my bottom lip is peeling. The last time this happened, I used Vaseline and got a cold sore. Idk?

My bottom lip is chapped, the skin that connects to my bottom lip is peeling. The last time this happened, I used Vaseline and got a cold sore. Idk?

Cold sore unrelated: I don't think that cold sore outbreak was directly related to the use of vaseline. Petroleum jelly (vaseline) actually is known to promote healing of damaged skin, since it helps 'seal in' the sensitive skin cells under the damaged area...then they can regenerate. Cold sores usually come out at times of stress- exams, break-ups etc, so I think this was unrelated. Best to keep stress to a minimum. ...Read more

I applied zovirax (acyclovir) cream to my fever sore and vaseline because it was so dried out. I then touched the corner of my eye about an hour or so later.

I applied zovirax (acyclovir) cream to my fever sore and vaseline because it was so dried out. I then touched the corner of my eye about an hour or so later.

Probably OK: Your body has immunity to herpes and you had zovirax (acyclovir) cream on your hand. The skin and eye surfaces as well were likely to have been intact. All of these together mean you will almost certainly not have a problem. ...Read more

I suffered from cold sore for a month. I went to doctor and he prescribed mupirocin cream for me. I am currently using this cream 3 times a day but my lips and skin around my mouth I very crackly since I used this medicine. Can I use Vaseline too?

I suffered from cold sore for a month. I went to doctor and he prescribed mupirocin cream for me. I am currently using this cream 3 times a day but my lips and skin around my mouth I very crackly since I used this medicine. Can I use Vaseline too?

See a dermatologist: Cold sores do not last a month. So it was something else. Mupirocin is used for impetigo, not cold sores. Do you still have a sore? Using mupirocin ointment or cream? Change from mupirocin to vaseline. See dermatologist if persists more than a few days. ...Read more

Used retin A (tretinoin) twice on penis head...skin burned, reddish and sore patches. Applying Vaseline, moisturizer for 3 days. Can I apply Betnovate ointment?

Used retin A (tretinoin) twice on penis head...skin burned, reddish and sore patches. Applying Vaseline, moisturizer for 3 days. Can I apply Betnovate ointment?

Stop: I have no idea why you want to put Retin A (tretinoin) on your penis head since there is no wrinkle there. If anything, try topical hydrocortisone for a few days to calm the inflammation down (I presume however that Betnovate is a brand of cortisone containing betamethasone. If so, it is ok to use it once a day for 3-4 days but no more). ...Read more

Caused by excessive moisture from saliva with possible with C. albicans or, less commonly, S. aureus. Encourage better oral hygiene and see PCP for symptoms refractory to Vaseline therapy.

GYN exam: Multiple causes and you must have a GYN exam to rule out infection, inflammation, irritation or GYN abnormality. Common causes include: tight (thong) underwear, prolonged foreplay or masturbation, rough sex or chaffing. You should wear cotton boxer underwear and change twice daily. Advil or Aleve (if not allergic) will help with pain and swelling. I advise a GYN exam. ...Read more
