Are you using the Epiduo on your lips? If so then yes it is most likely responsible. You should not use Epiduo on your lips.

During your first 4 weeks of using Epiduo your skin may be dry, red, or scaly. You may also feel some burning or stinging. Call your doctor if these side effects are severe.

I did not put it on my lips, I put the medication by my lips like around the rim of the lips and that's where most of my numbing / chipped feeling is coming from. It's not severe just annoying. Thanks
