  • Oral prosthesis dentures/ partials/ braces and tongue piercing bars may increase risk of getting bacterial and/or fungal infection from the mouth to the lips.
  • Frequent or recent sinus infection puts lips at risk of infection.
  • Denture wearers generally carry a higher candida/ yeast count. Cutaneous candidiasis/ candidosis is more common in older women (angular stomatitis – perlèche, angular cheilitis). Recent antibiotic therapy can be responsible for a high candida count.
  • Steroid medications and antacid drugs can allow candida to overpopulate. Smokers tend to have a high count also. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
  • The bacteria-yeast balance in the mouth can get out of whack, and the oral saliva will get in the holes made by tattooing lips.
  • Lips can get infected easily. Bacterial infections clear up more quickly than Candida Albicans infections. It is possible to have a co-infection when both bacteria and fungus are involved.
  • It is possible to get a candida infection right after clearing up a bacterial infection.
  • It is normal to have discomfort or a feeling of pressure the day of the lip procedure. The next day should be minimal.
  • If you begin having pain on the 3rd or 4th day after being pain-free, it is a signal that something is wrong. It is usually one of three things: 1) Infection, 2) Cold sore, or 3) Allergic contact dermatitis from antibiotic ointment. Switch ointments to rule out that as the cause, and consider a culture to determine bacterial vs yeast infection.
