Hale - an inflammatory disease of the red border of the lips, which is characterized by a long course and is often combined and dyskeratosis and stomatitis.The disease is equally common in both sexes, there is evidence of child morbidity. And everyone felt the impact of the symptoms of cheilitis at some stage of their lives.It manifests itself after a long stay outdoors in windy weather, the cold, occurs in patients with salivary gland dystopia.
necessity of the treatment due to the fact that cheilitis on the lips is not a cosmetic defect.It is an inflammatory process involving the red border of lips.Inflammation is a strong damaging factor, because of which the epithelial tissue cells proliferate actively.This greatly increases the risk of cancer of the lips epidermis.In the case of exfoliative cheilitis and exudative because dyskeratosis, the risk is regarded as very high.For other forms of the disease it is much lower.Because in order to avoid the consequences of complex treat cheil
With such inflammatory diseases like cheilitis, the reasons for its development are multiple.It depends on them and a particular form, among which there are the following: catarrhal, candidiasis, exfoliative, eczematous, glandular cheilitis.
Catarrhal cheilitis causes of
primary cause of catarrhal cheilitis is mechanical damage, abrasion, scratching, infected with bacteria.Biting lips and provokes cheilitis, although this is due to the wetting of the red portion of saliva.Exposure to cold wet or hot and dry air also causes catarrhal cheilitis.One common factor for its development is considered hypovitaminosis vitamin B2, which activates the processes of cell growth and proliferation of the epithelium.
Chemical factors, including food, can cause also catarrhal cheilitis lips.The most hazardous chemical agents are gases present in the air industry.These aggressive substances damage the epidermal epithelial membrane red border, leading to the inflammatory response.Aggressive liquids cause cheilitis in contact with the surface of the lips.Solid chemicals rarely cause cheilites, because virtually no contact with the lips of man.
Candida cheilitis causes of
With such diseases like candida cheilitis, reasons related to the settling of oral yeast fungus "Candida (candida albicans)».This means that as an isolated disease, candidiasis cheilitis exists.It is only one of the components of the syndrome thrush.In the course of its development of Candida fungi enter and minor injuries on the red border of lips.They called exudative inflammation, and later appear the classic symptoms that characterize cheilitis.
Exfoliative cheilitis causes of
One of the main causes of exfoliative cheilitis is hypovitaminosis B2.And if in the development of forms of the disease bluetongue, this factor is almost unimportant, the exfoliative cheilitis is triggered because of its lack.Moreover, the presence of exfoliative cheilitis on the lips indicates not only about the lack of B2, but also about the general hypovitaminosis or avitaminosis.
Along with catarrhal form, exfoliative cheilitis can be caused by bad habits.Smoking cigarettes, pipes, hookah and biting lips inevitably lead to wetting their salivary fluid.Due to the presence of enzymes and nutrients, it can lead to damage to the epidermis of the lips.
Wetting lips on a wind or freezing weather leads to injuries and fractures of the epidermis.Subsequently, on the site of the damaged portion of the epithelium strengthens the processes of cell reproduction.Their actinic because it is broken, resulting in dyskeratosis.This phenomenon leads to a worsening of the current exfoliative cheilitis and can provoke cancers of the lips.
Eczematous cheilitis causes of Eczematous
cheilitis develops as a result of local allergic inflammation.Trigger factors - the use of allergenic cosmetics for women and the presence of allergies to certain foods.Lack of vitamin B2 also plays an important role in the development of eczematous cheilitis.
Glandular cheilitis causes of
In such diseases as glandular cheilitis, the reasons for the development associated with inflammation of the salivary glands located on the eve of the oral cavity on the inner surface of the lips.The disease may develop due stomatitis, caries, oral dysbiosis.
also glandular cheilitis on the lips is caused by constant wet lips with saliva, which is produced by dystopic exocrine glands.Normally, they are located on the inner surface of the mucosal epithelium throughout the oral cavity, but some red border does not.In connection with the impairment of body parts, minor salivary glands may appear next to the border of the mucosa and the epidermis.Himself secretory epithelium of the oral cavity, ie allocates saliva.The epidermis red border does not perform this function.But under the influence of saliva in it activates the process of keratinization.This leads to cheilitis and optional precancer.
concept of meteorological Hale
often provoking the most important factor that leads to the development of cheilitis, is the weather.Humidity and temperature, the speed of movement of air masses and rainfall - all this can cause damage to the epithelium of the lips.This leads to the subsequent inflammation.Moreover, cheilitis can also develop under the influence of sunlight: UV rays affect the sensory epithelium, resulting in dyskeratosis.
Hale, caused by weather phenomenon called weather.It can manifest itself in different seasons, although most mouth lesions occur in the winter, throughout the spring and late autumn.Meteorological cheilitis on the lips is caused by lack of vitamins.Particularly acute is felt in the late autumn and spring.
By the nature of morphological changes, cheilitis caused by meteorological factors, a catarrhal.In the course of its progression it can become exfoliative.The transition cheilitis one form to another is mediated by a pronounced lack of vitamins B2 and PP.Restores their deficit and competent local therapy will have to form the basis of treatment.
Heilit Manganotti - it obligate precancerous condition, while the complex of symptoms characterizing the precancerous inflammation of the lower lip.The main reason for this is cheilitis malnutrition epithelium red border.This happens due to mechanical injury lips and facial areas, damage to the facial nerve branches, chemical stimuli, including food.A special role in the development of cheilitis Manganotti plays a lack of vitamin A. Along with it there is a shortage of vitamins Groups B, C and PP.
cheilitis Symptoms vary depending on the specific form of the disease.Various features are shown in different degree for each person.Also, the intensity of the symptoms depends on the severity of the disease and the extent of damage to the epithelium of the lips.Also, when this pathology as a cheilitis, the symptoms depend on the use of cosmetics, diet, workplace and labor regime.For this reason, the symptoms of cheilitis may be a long time not to notice or do not pay attention, although inflammation lips will continue.
Catarrhal cheilitis symptoms
Catarrhal cheilitis appears thickened lips and increase them in size due to swelling.Hyperemia of the vessels leads to what looks inflamed lips look bright red and sometimes have a crimson hue.This is especially pronounced in patients with a broad "fleshy" lips.On the surface of lips when catarrhal Hale there are small flakes that do not cover the entire area of the red border.They are hard to detach from her lips, leaving behind a bleeding injury.
Catarrhal cheilitis often leads to cracking of the lips that bleed.Also, patients with catarrhal heylitom complain of a burning sensation in the lips, the feeling of pulsation, the surface roughness of the red border of the lips.These symptoms are caused by a violation of keratinization of epithelial cell proliferation and acceleration of the epidermis.Also, a typical symptom of catarrhal (and exfoliative) cheilitis are ulcerations in the corners of the mouth (perleches).
This feature is called angular stomatitis.Here damaged epidermis red border and the transition region lips.And in the corners of the mouth dyskeratosis highest intensity: horny scales of the epidermis is the largest.They can be seen immediately after a dream: they have a whitish or yellowish-gray color, disconnected safely, without leaving a bleeding injury.
Exfoliative cheilitis symptoms
Symptoms of exfoliative cheilitis substantially similar grounds catarrh red border.On the surface of lips noted the appearance of horny scales grayish or grayish-yellow.They are large and sometimes take the form of flakes, covering almost the entire surface of the red border.
Exfoliative cheilitis, the symptoms of which become more noticeable after sleep, and develops as a result of a lack of vitamin B2, and therefore will manifest Zayed.In the medical practice, it is assumed that exfoliative cheilitis is a continuation of catarrhal form.Progression cheilitis leads to the aggravation of dyskeratosis and deepening the inflammatory response.This means that it is in the form of exfoliative reach deep areas of the epidermis.
also exfoliative cheilitis is characterized by swelling of the lips, their bright color.When horny flakes come off on the surface of the lips appear Hemorrhagic crusts.And exfoliative cheilitis is also characterized by a tendency to cracking of the lips and engorgement.These rough, embossed on their surfaces often appear bleeding crack.Also, patients often feel a burning sensation in the lips, pulsation of small vessels and increase the local temperature due to the expansion of blood vessels.
often happens that in the cracks of the lips settled germs that can cause bacterial inflammation.Then, on the site of a torn or damaged epidermis flakes red border develops septic inflammatory response.Sometimes the wound may appear pus, and the edges are sealed and ogrubevayut.Sami scales around the infected wounds become yellowish-brown hue.
Eczematous cheilitis symptoms
Eczematous or allergic cheilitis manifested similar symptoms.They can be seen after the application of cosmetics or allergenic chemicals contact with the surface of the lips.An important point in the diagnosis eczematous cheilitis is that allergens, which cause an inflammatory reaction at the surface of the lips, also operate on other areas of skin.Any detergents that contact with the skin and causing contact dermatitis, eczematous cheilitis and cause lips.
Eczematous cheilitis has the following symptoms: swelling of the lips and the appearance of a bright red border color, lip augmentation, especially the bottom, in size.After a few hours of the development of inflammation in the red border of lips begin to appear whitish or grayish scales, which are difficult to break away from the surface of the epidermis.After self-tear on her lips crack is bleeding.If such scales fall off on their own, the wound is not formed.
Glandular cheilitis symptoms
Glundulyarny cheilitis is one of the rarest forms of inflammatory diseases of the mouth.It develops due to the constant contact of saliva near red border lips salivary glands.Moreover, the surface of inflamed lips, and shows the scales of gray or whitish color.Also inflamed salivary glands themselves, which often fall into the microbes.Then, in addition to swelling of the lips, redness and flaking of the patient will complain of a slight discharge of pus from the glands located on the inner surface of the lips.Also, the patient will disturb an unpleasant odor in the mouth, the appearance of abundant plaque at the base of the tongue.
Candida cheilitis symptoms
When Candida Haley main symptoms are those symptoms that are caused by lesions of the oral mucosa.Patients feel a burning sensation in the mouth due to damage to the mucous membranes and the surface of the tongue papillae.The cracks and abrasions mucosa actively Candida multiplies, which can be seen as a whitish-gray plaque on the inside of the cheeks and lips, on the palatal handles, on the tongue and sometimes on the back of the throat.
Drinking fluid or food intake causes damage to the mucous membranes, which is Candida.Fitting its growth bleed after mechanical damage to food.On the lips of vulvovaginal inflammation occurs disproportionately less, but because whitish coating on the red border you can not see.Reserved only signs of nonspecific inflammation: swelling of the lips and the increase in size, bright coloration of the lips by plethora of blood vessels, a burning sensation and a constant moisture to the lips.
also appears sour breath, which may be absent if the patient several times a day brushing your teeth or use chewing gum.The scales on the lips and cracks at Candida Haley almost never appear.
Heilit Manganotti symptoms
cheilitis This is manifested in the elderly, mostly in men over 50 years.On the red border of lips appear erosions and ulcers that are inflamed, sometimes bleeding.The most common symptoms are a considerable swelling red border, there is a pain in the erosions and ulcers, there is a surge of blood vessels.The lips burning sensation and when eating, drinking water or beverages.
Heilit different Manganotti no peeling in the corners of the mouth.If along with cheilitis Exfoliative Manganotti evolving and the form, the angular cheilitis can occur.In other cases of it can not be out of the question.
Heilit differential diagnosis
suspected cheilitis diagnose and cure it (except for the eczematous and glandular form) the patient can independently, without referring to your doctor.And this is important to know the most important differences in the forms of cheilitis that will require different treatments.The most important criterion for evaluating cheilitis is to ascertain the circumstances of occurrence of the inflammatory response.
If lips began to swell and become inflamed after exposure to wind or frost, the cheilitis will catarrhal.This form is the most benign: the flakes are small, narrow areas covered red border.Tear them is not recommended, because it is accompanied by severe pain and leaves a crack with a bleeding wound.Later catarrhal cheilitis without treatment or using ineffective techniques can be exfoliative.
From catarrhal it is characterized by a large number of dense scales on the surface of the lips.They come off much easier than in catarrhal.Also with exfoliative landforms damaged lips are much more pronounced.In addition, when there is exfoliative cheilitis infected areas of the lips, which is especially pronounced at the corners of the mouth and in the cracks on the ground chunking scales.Then the lips acquire paly hue due to thickening of the epidermis.In some areas of the flakes due to microbial inflammation become yellowish-brown.
If during the life there was a contact with an allergen, the patient worried eczematous cheilitis.This form is most common in women using different types of cosmetics.If you can set the type of allergen, its exclusion from the domestic use forever eliminates the symptoms of eczematous cheilitis.
