Hi, a friend of mine's son has had cracked and bleeding lips since early spring and first of all the parents put him on anti histamines as they thought it was an allergic reaction (they did take him to the doctors when this happened). This has been happening now since the spring and the poor lad can hardly eat and he also now has to eat a very bland diet as he is also suffering from diarrhoea. The doctors have said he's either got IBS or Chrons - he went to the hospital today to have and Endoscopy, he's also going to have a Colonoscopy.
I said to my friend that I would put a post on here to see if anyone out there has ever suffered with cracked and bleeding lips - I certainly wouldn't tie this up with IBS. If anyone has heard of this could they please let me know.
