What are the Downsides of Teeth Bleaching?

Standard

Bleachorexia: A Serious Disorder Which Destroys Your Teeth

Bleachorexia may sound harmless, but it’s a very serious disorder. People who feel like their teeth are never white enough and bleach their teeth over and over are said to have bleachorexia.

 

A dentist coined the term a few years ago when he started noticing patients coming in over and over for bleaching treatments whose teeth were in really bad shape as a result of the over bleaching.

 

When a person has bleachorexia they usually use home bleaching kits several times a week and see the dentist for more in-depth bleaching on a regular basis. But the overexposure to harsh bleaching gels and additives in home bleaching kits can destroy teeth.

The Damages Caused by Excessive Teeth Bleaching

Someone who suffers from bleachorexia thinks that their teeth are never white enough, so they keep bleaching. But as they keep bleaching the enamel of the tooth is worn away. That leaves the inner part of the tooth exposed. The inner part of the tooth is naturally a yellowish color.

 

When the person sees their teeth as being yellow they bleach again, which just makes the problem worse. Eventually the teeth become so weak and broken down that they crumble or fall part. Then the person has to endure root canals, crowns, and even implants just to fix the damage.

Bleachorexia on the Rise

According to dentists that specialize in cosmetic dentistry bleachorexia is on the rise. There is so much pressure on people to look great all the time these days that people are going to extremes bleaching their teeth constantly. In the era when selfies are popular and posting photos of yourself is expected everyone wants to look camera ready all the time.

 

Having a white smile is expected, so people do whatever they can to make their smile look great. Unfortunately all that bleaching can destroy natural teeth. Using a natural tooth whitening product and using it responsibly is the best way to whiten teeth without causing massive damage to your teeth.

 

Excessive Use of Whitening Gels Results in Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity is a problem for a lot of people, but for people who use teeth bleaching kits and other harsh tooth whitening products tooth sensitivity can become a huge problem. Tooth sensitivity that is caused by over bleaching teeth cannot be reversed, because the sensitivity is caused by a loss of tooth enamel.

 

Excessive teeth bleaching with strong whitening gels will wear down the enamel on teeth and leave the pulp of the tooth exposed. When the pulp is exposed the tooth will become extremely sensitive and painful. There is no way to replace tooth enamel once it’s been lost.

How Teeth Bleaching Causes Sensitivity

There are two different application methods for teeth whitening gels. One method uses a tray that is filled with whitening gel and put over your teeth. The tray stays on for a certain amount of time and the gel is supposed to remove stains and debris on the teeth to make them whiter.

 

The second method is when a dentist applies a peroxide based gel to your teeth for a cosmetic bleaching. The gel sits on your teeth for about 20 minutes and then the dentist uses a laser to amplify the effect of the gel.

No matter what application method is used that gel is doing more than scrubbing stains off your teeth. It is eating through the enamel of the tooth. As the enamel breaks down and is washed away your teeth will become sensitive because the inner pulp of the tooth is being exposed. The more you bleach, the more pulp is exposed.

Living with Tooth Sensitivity

Even though sensitivity won’t cause any tooth loss it can still make life difficult and painful. Eating and drinking can be painful. Even the weather or allergies can trigger pain in your teeth if the enamel on the teeth has been worn away.

 

You may have to give up some of your favorite foods and drinks if the sensitivity is severe. Living with tooth sensitivity won’t get any easier because the enamel cannot be replaced. Sensitivity is a permanent condition.

 

Bluish Enamel Is an Adverse Effect of Teeth Bleaching

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with your teeth when at home teeth bleaching kits are used. Sometimes cosmetic dental whitening can cause problems too, but the most severe damage to teeth is usually done by at home whitening kits.

 

That’s because people don’t always use those kits correctly and because they don’t realize how damaging the whitening gel can be to their teeth and gums.

 

Some of the problems that can occur when home teeth bleaching kits are used too often include sensitivity, gum irritation, and bluish enamel around the edges of teeth. Seeing bluish colored enamel on teeth is a sign of a very serious problem.

What Bluish Enamel Means

It’s common for teeth and gums that come into contact with whitening gel to appear white. But if you notice that the enamel on your teeth has a bluish tint that means that the dentin of your teeth is exposed.

 

Dentin is the bony tissue that lies under the enamel on a tooth. If you are seeing bluish colored tissue on your tooth that means that bleaching has destroyed the enamel on that tooth.

 

Once that enamel has been destroyed there is no way to replace it. Enamel is there to protect the dentin and the pulp of your tooth so if the enamel is gone it means that your tooth is at risk of damage, infection, and you may eventually lose that tooth.

How Teeth Bleaching Causes Bluish Enamel

Bleaching the teeth with at home kits makes it easy for people to make mistakes. Leaving the gel on too long or using the whitening kit too often will wear away the enamel on the tooth.

 

Even if you think you are following all the directions correctly there is a good chance that the tray that is supposed to fit over the teeth won’t fit correctly because it’s not custom made for your mouth.

 

Utilizing Whitening Strips to Whiten Your Teeth

Nowadays there are several solutions for a bright, white smile which vary greatly from those of ancient times. One such method is whitening strips. The latter are made up of polyethylene. This is a flexible material consisting of hydrogen peroxide.

 

Humidity is caused when you apply these strips to your teeth and a chemical reaction takes place. A mild acid is formed which removes some teeth stains. Before using whitening strips you should visit your dentist. The latter can identify the causes of discoloured or stained teeth.

 

When this is done, you could decide which teeth whitening method is best for you. Brown or grey teeth stains are difficult to remove by whitening strips whereas yellow stains are eliminated more easily by using whitening strips.

When using whitening strips you should take note of the manufacturer’s instructions. When you know how to use these strips they yield positive results.

 

However, you should not use these strips always because they can harm the teeth enamel as well as the tissue under the gum. Moreover, prolonged application of whitening strips causes your teeth to become transparent thus appearing darker. Also, you should avoid exposing the gums to these strips as this can cause irritation.

 

A natural whitening solution is therefore a better choice because it will not destroy your enamel but will give you a brighter and whiter smile.

What You Should Know about Bleaching for Teeth Whitening

Standard

 

Applying Bleaching Gel to Brighten Teeth

One of the teeth whitening methods that many people try at home is using a bleaching gel. Bleaching gel is pretty inexpensive and easy to find.

 

Bleaching gels are made from a peroxide solution that can be applied in several different ways. The gel can be applied in a bleaching tray that fits over the teeth, or with a small brush or a toothbrush. It also can be put into a bleaching pen and applied with the pen.

Advantages of Using Bleaching Gel

One of the advantages of using bleaching gel to brighten teeth is the ease of use. Because you can use the gel in a tray, in a pen, or painted directly onto the teeth with a brush it makes it easy for people to apply the gel in whatever method works for them.

 

Bleaching gel works in as little as 10 minutes, which makes it perfect for people who want to brighten their teeth before going out or going to work. Bleaching gel also is not as messy as some other types of tooth whitening products because it is a thick gel. But despite the advantages using bleaching gel is not always the best choice for tooth whitening.

Disadvantages of Using Bleaching Gel

Bleaching gel, like many other peroxide based tooth whiteners, doesn’t dramatically whiten teeth. If your teeth have some minor staining or are just looking dull then a bleaching gel will make your teeth look whiter. But if your teeth are discolored or seriously stained the peroxide gel won’t have enough power to dramatically whiten your teeth.

 

Another disadvantage is that the gel has to stay on your teeth in order to work which means you can’t eat, drink, or do anything that might loosen the gel from the teeth the entire time that you’re wearing the gel. Using the gel everyday can weaken the enamel on your teeth and over time it can cause sensitivity or make any existing sensitivity worse.

 

Using Bleaching Pen for Teeth Whitening

One option when it comes to whitening teeth at home is a bleaching pen. A bleaching pen is similar in design to a laundry stain treating pen. It’s a hollow container filled with a whitening gel that is peroxide based.

 

You can use the tip of the pen to apply the whitening mixture to your teeth. There are some advantages and disadvantages to using a bleaching pen to whiten your teeth.

Advantages of Using a Bleaching Pen to Whiten Teeth

The biggest advantage of using a bleaching pen is that you get excellent control of where you place the whitening gel. If you only want to whiten a couple of teeth you can easily do that with the pen. Or, if you have teeth that have deep stains and need more coverage than strips or other types of whiteners have the bleaching pen is a good choice.

 

Bleaching pens are also usually fairly inexpensive, which is good for people who want to whiten their teeth without shelling out for expensive trays and strips. A bleaching pen is easy to apply anywhere and you can put the pen into a pocket or purse and take it with you for quick whitening.

Disadvantages of Using a Bleaching Pen to Whiten Teeth

There are some significant disadvantages that come with using a bleaching pen as well. Applying the whitening gel on some teeth can be difficult because of the shape of the applicator, leaving your teeth unevenly white.

 

The whitening gel in the pen also usually takes at least 30 minutes to work. During that time you can’t eat, drink, or even talk very much. If you do the gel will become loose and won’t whiten your teeth. So unless you have at least half an hour to sit and do nothing a bleaching pen won’t be as effective as other types of whitening products.

 

Also, the peroxide -based whitening gel used in bleaching pens isn’t very effective when it comes to whitening teeth. Studies have shown that the gel only whitens teeth a little bit, about as much as a whitening toothpaste.

 

Using Light-accelerated Bleaching Treatment for Teeth Whitening

Light-accelerated bleaching is newer type of treatment for tooth whitening. It has to be done by a dentist who has been trained in how to use a laser for cosmetic dentistry.

 

During a light-accelerated bleaching treatment the dentist will first spread a peroxide based gel on your teeth. The gel will sit on your teeth for around 15 or 20 minutes.

 

Then the dentist will use a laser to accelerate the whitening process by activating minerals within the gel that is on your teeth. The results can be very dramatic, because the use of the laser can whiten teeth up to 11 shades.

 

People like this procedure because it’s relatively quick, it only has to be done once, and there are very noticeable results. But there are some concerns about light-accelerated tooth whitening that mean you should think carefully about it before you make an appointment.

Concerns about Light-Accelerated Bleaching

The cost of this procedure is high, and many people don’t have the disposable income to pay $1000 or more for a tooth whitening treatment. Because this is a cosmetic dentistry treatment most insurance will not cover it. There are also some safety concerns about the procedure.

 

Anytime a laser is used on the body there can be damage done, in this case there is a risk of damage to the gums. The peroxide gel used on the teeth can cause damage, inflammation and irritation to the gums all by itself.

 

So when the gel is amplified by the laser the gums can become raw and painful for up to a week after the procedure. There is also a risk to the teeth themselves.

 

Dentists follow up the light-accelerated whitening with a fluoride treatment to try and strengthen any teeth that were weakened by the laser. Multiple treatments could cause tooth loss or breakage later on.

Light-accelerated bleaching may be a good fit for some people, but there are some definite risks as well as the high cost of the treatment that you need to consider before you decide that this treatment is something that you want to pursue.

Why Regular Medication with Antibiotics Does Not Permanently Cure Angular Cheilitis

Standard

 

Angular Cheilitis is mainly a skin disease provoked by the excessive moisture present in the crests, folds or wrinkles around the lips, especially from the corners of the mouth. This moisture digs into the skin causing cracks and lesions which later on become infected and form pus.

 

From here on is just a vicious circle, in which the infection expands causing skin to crack even more, while these cracks provide more space for the infection to grow and develop faster.

 

When having to deal with such a condition most people rush into the dermatologist’s offices hoping to permanently cure angular cheilitis. What they receive instead is a lotion or a cream based on antibiotic substances.

 

This treatment should kill the bacteria and thus, leave the skin clean so as to start recovering from the damage. It is a slow process which in most cases, even if it does function bring too little relief for the desperate people.

 

This is mainly because the bacteria are quite smart organisms, smarter than you may have thought. Thus, when an antibiotic is used in order to destroy them, some of them die while other become much stronger and can no longer be defeated by the same antibiotic or by a substance similar to it.

 

This is why, even though you find a powerful antibiotic which will provide relief the first time when Angular Cheilitis appears. This will not permanently cure Angular Cheilitis because the same treatment will be useless when the disease makes its appearance its second time.

 

As you well know, in most cases this condition does appear a second time, so basically with antibiotics you can only have half of the problem solved or in other worlds postpone the search for an effective treatment a little longer.

 

Thus, if your dermatologist has prescribed you any antibiotics you can take them and hope for the best. If it is your first time taking them, they may actually work, but if you are at a second attempt, it is advisable to look for something more powerful or try some of the alternative or complementary treatments that can permanently cure Angular Cheilitis.

 

You will be amazed to see how many effective treatments you can find outside the dermatologist’s office!

Why It Is Important to Address Angular Cheilitis from the First Signs

Standard

Chapped lips, cracks in the area around the mouth and pain when you open your mouth, these are the first signs that an Angular Cheilitis is about to invade the corners of your lips and will start to trouble your life.

 

With time, these symptoms become more and more acute. Thus, the cracks grow deeper and deeper and transform into painful sores, while the pain you feel when opening your mouth grows significantly as time goes by.

 

In addition to that, the cracks soon begin to bleed and the infection with different bacteria or fungi is just a matter of time. In most of the cases, candida albicans is the bacterium which affects Angular Cheilitis sufferers.

 

All this process happens quite fast and in about a week you can go from a perfect healthy person to an Angular Cheilitis sufferer, who cannot eat, drink, laugh or speak properly any more, a person who is embarrassed to get out of the house because of the way the skin from around their lips looks like. This is why, it is highly essential that you start an appropriate treatment from the very first signs of cheilosis.

 

Using at least a lip balm that does not contain any perfume or colorants each and every time /you feel that the area is too dry, preventing your saliva or sweat from reaching in the affected areas and maintain a perfect hygiene are some of the steps, which if done from the apparition of this skin condition may stop its evolution, make it less violent and decrease the amount of time it will take to heal.

 

In addition to that, taking vitamin supplements, having a balanced diet and avoid humid places, cold places or places where there is dust will significantly contribute to the minimization of Angular Cheilitis’ effects and will make it more bearable for the person who has to deal with it.

 

A visit to the doctor is also recommended, so that you will be given some ointments or creams which can treat this condition and at the same time see which the vitamins your body lack are, so that you can address this issue fast too.

 

When dealing with Angular Cheilitis, the more time you waste postponing the time when you start your treatment, the more time you will have to cope with this condition. Thus, if you do not want the cracks to aggravate and start bleeding, move fast and start a treatment right from the first symptoms.

3 Tips to Dry Out Angular Cheilitis

Standard

Treating Angular Cheilitis may be a challenge for those who have to cope with this condition mainly because the cracks and lesions which appear in the skin need to be moisturized so that they no longer extend, while moisturizing the area means creating a proper environment for the bacteria to grow and develop faster.

 

Thus, if you want to kill the bacteria you will have to dry the skin, while drying it means more cracks, thus more pain and an aggravation of the problem.

 

Thus, what are the solutions which will make Angular Cheilitis go away in a short period of time and without causing any more pain?

 

Tip 1 to Dry Out Angular Cheilitis

 

First of all you will have to give back your skin the elasticity it needs in order to avoid further cracking. Because you cannot do that from the outside, you will have to do it from the inside, that is drink plenty of water, so that your skin will be hydrated enough and will not crack any longer.

 

Tip 2 to Dry Out Angular Cheilitis

 

You will also have to take some iron and vitamin B supplements. This will fortify your body and will help you fight this condition much more effectively. You can also increase the share of food containing these vitamins in your daily meals. It will be great for your body and for your skin.

 

Tip 3 to Dry Out Angular Cheilitis

 

In order to relieve the pain you can also use some special, moisturizing creams. However, refrain from using too much creams or applying them for too long as you may thus favor the growing of bacteria.

 

Unless you have a special treatment in the form of a cream or lotion, use this type of relief moderately, so that you will not further increase the number of bacteria already existent inside those cracks and lesions.

 

If you have the tendency of licking your lips quite often, then you better use creams and lip balms then continue to lick them. This is mainly because the saliva does not moisture the skin, but further dries it so you will only aggravate the problem by applying saliva on the affected area. Plus, think of how many bacteria are hidden in your mouth!

 

These steps will help you deal with Angular Cheilitis especially if you suffer from a mild case. Yet, for severe cases it is recommended that you also use special treatment, in the best case provided by a dermatologist.

3 Tips for Treating Baby Angular Cheilitis

Standard

It is well known that babies are much more sensitive than adults and that for them facing a certain disease or illness is far harder than it is for adult people. This is why they must receive special attention when one or another condition affects skin.

 

Angular Cheilitis is one of those skin conditions which can be quite harsh on babies. It usually appears in the corners of their mouths, as these areas are almost always wet, thus favoring the development and growth of fungi and bacteria.

 

The most affected categories of babies are those who are given the pacifier on a regular basis, as they will always have saliva on the corners of their mouth.

 

In addition to that, babies’ immune system is quite underdeveloped, so fighting bacteria can become a real challenge for it, a challenge which is usually lost by the baby as their immune system is not yet strong enough to effectively fight bacteria. This makes them prone to Angular Cheilitis.

 

But what should you do when this type of skin condition affects your little baby? Well, it is recommended that you take action from the first cracks that appear on the skin, regardless of how small they are. The faster you start treating them the greater are the chances that they will not suffer a lot from it.

 

Tip 1 for Treating Baby Angular Cheilitis

 

You can purchase a skin moisturizer specially created for babies and apply a low amount of it periodically, so that your baby will not lick the affected areas. This will also hydrate the skin and prevent further cracking. In addition to that the cream will trap the bacteria inside, thus killing them.

 

It is even better if you can find a cream containing antibiotics that is suitable for your baby. This will prevent the infection and will stop the skin condition from its evolution.

 

Tip 2 for Treating Baby Angular Cheilitis

 

In addition to that, maintain a thorough hygiene inside the house and disinfect all the things your little one touches. Also, wash them and their clothes with antibacterial soap.

 

Tip 3 for Treating Baby Angular Cheilitis

 

Last, but not least, avoid giving them the pacifier, at least while they still have the cracks on their skin. If you cannot make them give up this habit make sure you always wipe the saliva from the corners of the mouth to prevent the aggravation of the cheilosis.

4 Substances Used for Alleviating and Treating Angular Cheilitis

Standard

When cracks in the corners of the mouth start to appear, when you have a hard time in opening your mouth because of these cracks and when they start expanding from the corners and affect the skin from all around the lips, you are suffering from Angular Cheilitis.

 

This skin condition appears in all categories of age, but it is preponderant in the cases of old persons who wear dentures or who have had their teeth pulled out and the lips close more than normal or form multiple folds.

 

Children who are given pacifiers or who constantly lick their lips are also prone to this skin condition. Teenagers and young adults are less exposed to it, but there are cases in which they could also become victims of Angular Cheilitis, especially in the situation in which they tend to lick their chapped lips or have a low immune system.

 

According to the cause which stood at the basis of Angular Cheilitis formation, there are certain treatments which can be followed. In most cases a cream or ointment is enough to calm the pain and stop the evolution of the disease.

 

Yet, there are also situations in which some more actions should be taken in order to treat this condition. These actions are mainly changing the dentures or doing something about the lost teeth (in case of old age people) and increase the amount of minerals and vitamins from the sufferer’s body. Yet, these must always be done in correlation with an external treatment.

 

Treating Angular Cheilitis #Tip 1

 

When the Angular Cheilitis is infected with fungi, an anti-fungal and steroids cream is used to treat it. Called Mycolog II, this cream kills the fungi, while the steroids from its components help relieve the pain or itching (when such sensations exist).

 

Yet, when undergoing treatment with this substance safety measures should be taken so that it does not get ingested, as steroids have numerous side effects on the human body.

 

Treating Angular Cheilitis #Tip 2

 

When there is an infection with bacteria, an anti-bacterial product should be used. Most doctors recommend Miconazole, a gel that has both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, thus can effectively stop any kind of infection or spreading of the skin condition.

 

Treating Angular Cheilitis #Tip 3

 

Another substance used for relieving pain and treating Angular Cheilitis is hydrocortisone in concentration on 1%.

 

Treating Angular Cheilitis #Tip 4

 

Babies and people with highly sensitive skin can use lip balms or Vaseline to alleviate the condition. However, using only those products will treat the condition only if it is in the incipient phase or if you are willing to wait a long period of time.

Prevent Angular Cheilitis by Following These Simple Steps

Standard

It is well known that it is much easier to prevent a disease than treating it. Angular Cheilitis makes no exception to the rule. In fact, it is much better to stay away from this condition then having to cope with it and wait weeks or even months until it gets treated.

 

This is why it is highly important to know how you can prevent it before you will be face with this skin condition. Below you will find some simple steps which should be taken in order to keep cheilosis away from your skin.

 

Prevent Angular Cheilitis #Step 1 – Balanced diet, filled with food rich in vitamins and minerals
The immune system plays a great part in fighting internal or external aggressions. This is why you must make sure it is strong enough to face all those bacteria and viruses without collapsing.

 

A strong immune system can only be acquired with a balanced diet rich in leafy vegetables, green vegetables, fresh fruits, lean meat and dairy products.

 

Also, intakes of vitamin supplements is recommended when the body has to recover from an illness or surgery, when there are periods of stress or in case of extreme weather conditions.

 

Prevent Angular Cheilitis #Step 2 – Take care of your teeth
Teeth, although indirectly involved, can be the cause of Angular Cheilitis. More precisely, if your teeth prevent the mouth from closing normally, if you lack one or more teeth or if your denture is not fitting well in place, folds are created where saliva and sweat can remain for a longer period, thus putting the bases of a severe Angular Cheilitis.

 

Prevent Angular Cheilitis #Step 3 – Proper hygiene
Although you must generally take care of your hygiene, this is even much more important if you want to prevent Angular Cheilitis as only a through hygiene will kill most of the bacteria and fungi and will prevent further infection of the cracks.

 

Prevent Angular Cheilitis #Step 4 – Avoid licking your chapped lips
Chapped lips are the main cause for which Angular Cheilitis occurs in children. Thus, learning them that is wrong to lick their lips and provide them a lip balm to keep with them wherever they go may significantly reduce the occurrence of such a skin condition.

 

These four steps may seem banal, yet they are the main steps you have to take in order to keep Angular Cheilitis away and precisely because they are so easy and simple you should start taking them so that neither you nor your family will have to cope with this skin condition ever again!

Most Common Causes of Angular Cheilitis and How Can It Be Avoided

Standard

Angular Cheilitis is one of the most painful dermatologic conditions. It affects almost all groups of people and it can turn to serious disease if it is not treated accordingly and in due time. The factors which trigger this condition can be multiple.

 

There may be one factor causing the condition or a combination of causes may give rise to it, so knowing exactly what was the main cause of your Angular Cheilitis is essential in developing a treatment that will not only address the cheilosis, but will also prevent its further apparition by treating its main causes.

 

Common Causes of Angular Cheilitis #1

 

Most cases of Angular Cheilitis occur in old persons wearing dentures and in people with a bad dentition as the mouth no longer closes well and several folds are made around the lips. When these folds are filled with moisture (sweat, saliva) that stays there for a great amount of time, the skin becomes red, irritated and eventually starts to crack.

 

In order to avoid that, it is recommended that you ask your dentist to change your denture when you feel it is no longer suitable for your face. Also, maintaining a thorough oral hygiene can seriously diminish the risk of infection or severe Angular Cheilitis, as the will be no more bacteria around and inside your mouth.

 

Common Causes of Angular Cheilitis #2

 

Chapped lips that are continuously licked may also develop into Angular Cheilitis, thus if you see your child doing that, you should explain them this is not ok and start using lip balm to soothe the discomfort caused by chapped lips. This will moisturize the lips and will prevent the further development of the Angular Cheilitis.

 

Most of the times, these cracks get infected with thrush (Candida albicans) or with other types of fungi and bacteria. This will further increase the pain the patient feels, while the cracks will get deeper, start to bleed and even accumulate infection inside (in severe cases). This is why this condition must be treated as soon as possible.

 

The lip folds, chapped lips and candida albicans are external factors which can trigger Angular Cheilitis. Yet, most of the times internal factors are also involved in the process of development of this disease.

 

Common Causes of Angular Cheilitis #3

 

Anemia, or lack of nutrients and vitamins necessary for the body, is most of the times responsible for the apparition of Angular Cheilitis. The deficiency in iron, zinc and vitamin B2 weaken the immune system, which is less capable of fighting any external aggression.

 

This is why supplements are given to people who suffer from this condition and a healthy diet is recommended in order to strengthen the body and make it more resistant in front of both external and internal aggressions.

 

These are the main causes which trigger Angular Cheilitis. Other factors may cause it, like too much Vitamin A, but they are less productive than the ones mentioned above.

What are the Minor Issues which Aggravate Angular Cheilitis?

Standard

When you have angular Cheilitis you want to get rid of it instantly and would do whatever it takes for that to happen. Yet, without knowing some of your little gestures may further aggravate the problem and instead of getting rid of it you only make it more serious and resistant to any type of treatment.

 

Here are some of the things which can negatively affect your skin when having Angular Cheilitis.

 

Issues which Aggravate Angular Cheilitis #1 – Lip Licking

Many people try to find a little relief in licking their chapped lips or the areas around the mouth affected by Angular Cheilitis. This is one of the worst things you can do as the saliva maintains the area wet, thus offering a great environment for the bacteria to grow and develop.

 

Also, because the saliva contains plenty of bacteria, the risk of infection increases each time you lick your lips. Thus, refrain from doing that.

Issues which Aggravate Angular Cheilitis #2 – Lack of Water

Some people avoid drinking lots of water for fear of not maintaining the affected areas wet, so that the bacteria cold keep growing. Yet, this is the worst thing you could do, as without hydrating the skin this will not get all the necessary substances needed to resist the inflammation and the cheilosis will have more room to spread and develop. Instead, drinking enough water will keep the skin hydrated and will help it heal faster.

 

Thus, bring a bottle of water with you wherever you go and even replace the juices or whatever beverages you drank during meals with a glass or two of water. This will pay off in time, guaranteed
