    I had cold sores on my lips that I took care of with lysine.  The sores went away, but I can't get rid of chapped lips.

    Daisy,

     

    Chapped lips are a sign that your body is not hydrated enough. You should drink lots of water. You could also be experiencing thrush or a Candida infection (yeast infection) this will cause your lips to crack. One of the best over the counter medicines I found for dry chapped lips is Doctor Dan's lip balm. You can look for them at your local pharmacy.

     

    While online sites are great for getting information that will help you ask all the right questions, you should never pass over your doctor's sound medical advice.


    Take care and stay in touch!

      1-No Licking!Avoid licking your lips, since the saliva will evaporate and leave them dry.

      2-Avoid going out in dry, cold weather without putting on lip balm or lipstick.

      3-Use Bepanthen Plus oinment on your lips.It is miraculous.

      I used it an get ride of chepped lips.

      4- Drink plenty of water

      5-Chapped and cracked lips can indicate a deficiency of Vitamin B. Add a B complex vitamin supplement to your diet.
