View Full Version : cracked corners of my lips
06-24-2009, 10:44 PM
okay so tonight on the way home i noticed the corners of my lips are cracked.
i had some pineapple today so it may have been that... but can it also be a vit b issue?
*i may be pregnant so i'm concerned (in this moment) about the possible vit b issue*
off to do some research but thought i'd ask all of you in the meantime.

well i found this so far:
Foods high in Folic Acid and B12
bananas - eat at least one to four daily
spinach - every day or second day in my GS

I'm going to guess it's the pineapple, sweetie pie...
But keep rockin' those B's! :p

if you are pregnant, congratulations! :D
sorry you have cracked lips! i would think it would be the pineapple, because those are so acidic, it makes sense that it could dry out the area around your mouth.

That happens to me if I don't get enough vitamin B. I take a B and C complex, but my Endo. wants me to take an additional 1,000 mg of B12. My B12 level tests towards the low end of normal range.
Raw pineapple causes horrid blisters on my lips the second it touches them. I can't eat it. Canned pineapple doesn't do this to me. Not that I eat that either...

Pinneaple gives me problem too with the lips.
I had no clue that low B12 could do that.

i'm eating so many bananas i can't imagine being low in anything since they are like a super food.
my lips feel better this morning so i'm guessing it was the pineapple. weird, i often eat them and haven't had my lips do this before.
ahhh life... always learning!!!
