Pain in the Lip

Boots Zinc & Castor Oil Cream Sometimes, usually when I have a particularly nasty cold, I get a spot/crack in the corner of my mouth. I know I'm not the only one but, having looked into causes etc on the Internet, I seem to be the only one with a helpful cure.

I did do research into what causes it and I'm not going to go into that here because, well... I didn't agree. Some people say it's a vitamin disorder, some say its an allergic reaction to some foods or products, some even say it's a form of herpes. I don't think it's any of these... well the one I get isn't. OK so if I eat a whole pineapple I may get one, I'm not denying that acidic foods may be a cause sometimes but mine is about once a year when I'm coldy.

So if this sounds like something that happens to you and you've not found anything that works then - and I know this is going to sound weird  - try using Zinc and Castor Oil cream from Boots (or in fact I've just found it cheaply here - although I haven't tried this particular one). It's in the nappy rash section and no using Sudocrem is not going to be the same. This stuff really works if you apply it whenever you remember, for a couple of days.

I know that maybe this suggestion may make some people shout at me about its unsuitableness or tell me that this actually does mean I have some vitamin deficiency, I don't care. These spots/cracks/whatever they are, are painful and annoying and I want it gone asap. And, I'm not the only one this works for, my mother and sister swear by it too and a) we can't all have mouth herpes b) my mother is always right so there. I don't want to think too deeply about how the Holmes family discovered this nappy rash cream works so well (I'd like to point out it used to just be a normal unspecified cream...) but it does so give it a go xx
