      OK gang,

      My bottom lip on the inside is swollen????:mad:

      I keep biting it.

      Has anyone else experienced this?

      On to the third week now

      See doctor next week.

      Just wondering if it has anything to do with CIDP

      Hi Rhonda,

      I have gone through episodes of biting the inside of my lip

      or cheek for at least 20 yrs. I,ve only had cidp dx since the

      fall of ’06. I have extremely dry eyes & mouth. The dry

      mouth causes extra friction & makes it easier to bite your

      self. I find Biotine toothpaste & mouthwash help alot, then

      for the bites I use Orabase. I hope this is of some help!

      Hi Rhonda,

      Glad you saw my post. The Orabase is a sticky paste. My

      trick is to apply it at bedtime. Dry the inside of your lip,

      then dab the spot several times with a small amt. If you

      try to rub it on, it just makes a mess.

      I noticed your beautiful dog. I have a Catahoula & a

      Dallas Lop (left over parts)!

      Take care,

      Jan S.
