Questions About Specific Health Issues

Type A with Cracked Lips


QUESTION

The corners of my mouth are irritated and crack when I yawn. I have tried cortizone ointments, anti-bacterial ointments, vaseline, to no avail. My doctor gave me a pill for yeast although he did not think it was a yeast infection. He also injected it with cortizone which did not help. He seemed to think it was nothing, even though I have consulted with him twice. The corners are red, wrinkled, and dry. I also consulted the dentist who didn't have any ideas on the cause. I am a type A but I am not very careful with the diet right now.


ANSWER

This can be very common in type A's, and is a clear sign that their stomach acid levels are too low. Following the type A diet more closely should help balance acid level to your dietary need. A topical licorice gel also can give substantial, if temporary relief.




The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
