Eczema on Lips - Discover The Best Treatments

Posted

Do you suffer from eczema on lips? Unlike severely chapped lips, lip eczema can be caused by a variety of other factors other than dryness. Read on to learn more about eczema on lips, as well as the best eczema on lip treatment for you.

Eczema on lips can appear quite similar to severely chapped lips, but has a few different symptoms. These include:

  • Redness or a rash
  • Splitting
  • Scaling
  • Itching
  • Thickened, swollen-looking skin
  • Change of pigmentation

Eczema on lips can be caused by a variety of externals factors such as allergens or allergies to certain substances (for example an allergy to an ingredient found in a lipstick), but can also be caused by internal factors such as stress, hormones, an unhealthy gut and much more. Read How to Get Rid of Eczema Naturally for more information.

Eczema on lips can also be caused by changes in weather. Similarly to chapped lips in winter, eczema on lips is more common in cold conditions.

As always, with any type of eczema, you’ll want to seek medical advice to get an accurate diagnosis and suggestions on the best possible eczema on lip treatment.

Eczema on Lip Treatment

If you are looking to heal your lip eczema naturally, there are a variety of treatments you can turn to. As always, you’ll want to make sure that whichever product you use it is gentle enough for your irritated skin (and on an area so sensitive like your lips). Our top eczema on lip treatments are:

Organic Manuka Skin Soothing Cream—This soothing creamy balm can be used for all types of eczema and can be applied to all parts of the body. We find that it works particularly well on lips, as the olive oil and beeswax is extremely soothing. The cream also contains Manuka honey and oil which are known to have anti-bacterial properties. Our owner likes to use this on her eyelids, lips and pretty much all over her face, using a small amount in the summer and a more generous amount in winter.

Organic Calendula Lip Balm—This simple, natural and nourishing eczema lip balm contains only 3 ingredients to soothe your irritated lips. It contains calendula which has both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, as well as vitamin E and beeswax. We love the small purse size which makes it a great eczema on lip treatment for travel.

Eczema on Lip Home Remedies

Alternatively, if you are looking to treat your eczema on lips immediately, you can use the following home ingredients for relief:

Sugar—perfect to use as a scrub if you are suffering from dry lips. Using a larger grain sugar, like brown sugar or cane sugar is always a good idea. Salt can be irritating for some with eczema, so in general we recommend sugar over salt scrubs as an eczema on lip treatment.

Coconut Oil—used in a variety of natural treatments and contains anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. Can be quite soothing for red, inflamed skin. Make sure to use virgin, cold pressed coconut oil for best results.

Aloe Vera—as mentioned above, aloe vera can help with soothing inflamed, irritated skin while offering a cooling effect to calm red skin. Try to steer clear of aloe vera gels which often have alcohol and other harsh and drying ingredients added to it. Just break off a piece of the plant and rub it right on your lips. 

Elimination Diet

If the above treatments and home remedies provide no relief, then you might want to take a look at what you're eating instead. Carrying out an elimination diet under a physician's supervision can help you determine what might be causing your eczema on lips to flare up. An elimination diet essentially means eliminating certain foods from your diet (usually the top allergens - dairy, gluten, eggs, peanuts, soy, etc.) and reintroducing them to determine which foods cause a reaction.
