Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for September 23, 2006


I’ve suspected for a while that my chapped lips are from a riboflavin deficiency but after getting three B2 injections, it’s still there with very little improvement. I’ve also thought it could also be a B3 or B6 deficiency. Came across a website that talks about how Bioperine increases the absorption of B6.

Another site talks about the causes of dry lips:

Cheilitis, the medical term for dry lips, can be caused from other factors besides a change in the weather: Dry scaling of the lips and cracks at the side of the mouth are common in riboflavin (vitamin B2) deficiency. Similar findings may be seen with niacin and B6 deficiency (Source: Pocketguide to Micronutrients In Health and Disease, Dr. Robert Zimmerman, 1999, Thieme). This type of dryness can also be caused by a yeast (candida) infection (diabetics are particularly prone to this condition).

So candida can also cause this. First time I’ve ever come across this…
