hey thanks for the responses, yeah you can call it "rug burn" lol i really couldn't come up with anything to explain. but no, he's not really new anymore lol we've been together i guess since febraury, and never happened to me, well i did get chapped lips, but not as bad as this time. i guess i contributed to making it worse since i kept on licking my lips (my chapstick is flavored
) i guess i got them so dry to the point where my lips actually cracked really bad. top and bottom. i bought this walgreens brand medicated yesterday. it has a little bit of menthol tho, but i don't mind, i actually saw the difference an hour later after and today lips look a bit better and less puffy. (was begging to look like courtney love's lips
lol) i hope this goes away by the weekend bc i have a dentist appt on tuesday.
