I've had severely chapped lips for other a month now. They are red, swollen, itchy, and all over my lips are small blisters or bumps that ooze. The skin around my mouth is red and irritated and has peeled before. I have an appointment on Wednesday but they are getting worse. Ive tried Vitamin A supplements , non fluoridetoothpaste, and lanolin to no avail.
Apply a topical antibacterial preparation, such as Neosporin or Bacitracin, to your lips. Both of these medications are in a balm or petroleum base, and will add moisture to your lips as well as treat any bacteria that may be lurking. These preparations do not taste pleasant, and will also keep you from licking your lips, which you should avoid when they are chapped. Also, you can use the over-the-counter preparation Carmex to treat severely chapped lips.
