Lip is bleeding
Jess489 posted:
My moms lip has been bleeding uncontrolably for the last couple days. It happened earlier today and bled for an hour. It started bleeding again tonight as she was eating. It has been bleeding for about an hour now. It is on her lower lip. She has tried putting new skin on it when it stops bleeding but then that just falls off and it bleeds again. Any helo on how to get it to stop or even why it's happening would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Jess,

It's now over two days later and I hope your mom is doing better. This really is something that needs to be seen by a doctor or nurse practioner to determine what's going on and how best to treat it.
