Re: haha the least of anyone's worries

try carmex (it is really inexpensive, like a dollor or something, you can get it about anywhere)...it is really good and if that does not work see a dermatoligist

hey Little Loon, you must lick your lips a lot. Chapstick made in Virginia works for me. You just have to remember to use it more often. I live in Montana. It's very cold here too.

Re: haha the least of anyone's worries

Lucky for you, I happen to be the lip queen. Lips get chapped for a variety of reasons. Sometimes you lick your lips and you don't even realize that you did it. So you have to stay very conscious of that. A great way to get rid of chapped lips is before you go to bed at night, brush your lips gently with a wettened toothbrush and apply a chapstick such as Carmex, Menthalatum, Bag Balm, etc. You get the idea. I'm assuming you live in a cold place. Lips can become really chapped when you're switching from hot to cold... like it's cold outside, and then warm/hot inside. Make sure you carry a decent chapstick with you and always apply when you go through a temperature change, even if you have some on already. For now, until your lips heal, avoid using lip glosses and lipcolor.

I love my lips!~! haha, just kidding. Hope this helps, let me know!!

Great post lovely.lady,
I do just that, I use chapstick throughout the day and at night before I go to bed... I use Advanced Healing Vaseline Intensive Care Lotion too. That licking of lips when you don't realize it, is a common thing. I do it!

my god you ARE the lip queen lol. i use to have this heavy duty blistex stuff that use to sting like crazy and make my eyes water, but that hurt too much so i changed to a blistex fruit smoothie kind. it tastes good so that's probably my problem.

^yeah, do you lick them a lot? I remember I did that a bit when I was a kid, and they got all red & chapped.

Re: haha the least of anyone's worries

If you use the fruity kinds you're more likely to lick! That's why nasty-tasting stuff like Carmex and all that does you good because you'll be sure not to lick them. Though it's not a big possibility, your toothpaste or mouthwash could be triggering the chapping. Try using a different kind for a few days and see if it helps or not. Once your lips heal, try finding lip stuff that has ingredients like vitamin E. It really helps!

You're right Lovely.Lady,

but good tasting lip balm makes one very kissable
