View Full Version : Dry, Spotty Lips
08-13-2005, 02:02 PM
The last couple of weeks, my lips have been very dry, and there are these nasty lookin' small black spots on them. I don't know what to make of this. Whether its another form of detox, or perhaps not. Has anyone else experienced symptoms like this before?? What kind of things can i do to correct this?? What if anything, does this sound like>?? Should i be more concerned..???
Thanks as usual for any input.

This happened to my daughter once when she was visiting relatives for a couple of weeks. I immediately assumed she was dehydrated and upped her water intake and it went away quite quickly. Of course, I have no idea if this relates to you, but in case it helped, thought I would share.
Let us know what you figure out and best wishes.

My first thought is water, (Sweetgoddess how smart you are), and my next thought is moisturizer.
coconut butter/oil is excellent for the skin, or olive oil, do not ever use chapstick (it is highly addictive to the skin)

I bet you are right RawPriestess, though I never realized it before, as I have never had to use chapstick. But my husband uses it many times a day every single day, year after year and so does a good friend. I always found it so odd . I only ever had chapped lips maybe in midwinter from the "fake" heat as I call it and just drank more water.
He feels weird without it. Aha addiction?

I noticed that once I stopped using chemical lip stuff that my lips got pretty dry for a while. I started using olive oil or shea butter and they helped and I haven't had a problem with the chapped lips. I haven't tried coconut oil yet. But I did recently get some almond oil and that works nicely, too.

Oh, and as far as the tiny black spots...I've had those before, too, if it is what I'm thinking. It's just spot on your mouth where it's gotten so dry that it's broken the skin and the "black" is actually blood.
