Default Raw Lips

Just recently, I my lips had been swelling for an unknown reason, and was soon replaced with dry, cracked skin. Now, the skin is gone and the bottom lip near the inside of my mouth is all raw. I can't drink or eat much without it hurting.

Does anyone know any remedies or cures to help ease the pain or speed up the healing?

I also have dry lips very often that I often have cracked skin, sometimes I would use aloe vera, so maybe you can try aloe vera.

try drinking more water and restrain yourself from peeling the dry skin away. You could try trimming instead of peeling yeah?

My lip skin tend to crack too, when it's too hot or too cold. I always apply lip balm, even before I sleep, it seems to retain the moisture better and the skin won't peel.
Wow, so your skin isn't there anymore? It must hurt ;_; Like someone said, aloe vera is a good option (but won't taste any good, believe me!), you can try to apply lip balm around the area so it won't be cracky while your lip is healing, and will prevent from more peeling cause your skin will be very thin :3 Can't think of anything for the pain cause your lip is all exposed =/

My lips are constantly dry, the skin breaking etc. I just use Vaseline [Petrolium Jelly as kuyaBaka said] or lip balm of some sort to make them less sore.

Quote:
Lip balm or petroleum jelly can often provide temporary relief. Medical grade lanolin USP accelerates repair of lips and is used in some lip repair products. Certain enzymes present in saliva (normally used for digestion) irritate the lips, and the evaporation of the water in saliva saps moisture from them. For these reasons, licking one's lips is something that should be avoided.
It also says to avoid acidy drinks, foods etc. as it can irritate the sore areas.

Quote:
Honey has antibacterial properties which can help heal and soothe chapped lips
^ Another thing you could try.

Alright, thanks guys.

Vaseline and Petroleum jelly just make my lips even more chapped after it comes off, so I won't be using that.
I've been also been drinking plenty of water. and I already have Burt's Beeswax Lip Balm, so I guess I'm on the right track.

It hasn't quite gone away yet, but my the outer part of the lip has been clotted from blood although my lips have never been bleeding. Is this normal?

You might also be having a allergic reaction to something. A Chemical or spice. My dad had that problem he would eat garlic and shortly after his lips would swell and become chapped. If the problem keeps going on you should start cutting out things that you think might be causing the issue.

Ugh, i hate having chapped lips.

Carmex. Definitely.

I use it when my lips are bad, and it helps a lot. just make sure to rinse and wipe your lips (to remove saliva and such) and put carmex on before bed. If it feels tingly, that's a good thing, it means it's working.

another thing is to keep hydrated. Severely chapped lips are a sign of dehydration, so make sure you're drinking plenty of water to help them heal up.

Another thing you could try are the Aquafina lip balms. I use them all the time and so far, for everyday lipbalms, they're the best, though they'll be what you'll want to use during the day along with the carmex at night. The aquafina ones are usually in a pack of 4 for about 2 dollars at walmart, so it's a pretty good deal.

Lately my lip began to get dry again. I tried Vaseline because I couldn't find my other lib balms. Surprisingly it healed the cracks within a night. Vaseline NEVER worked for me last winter.

Have you tried aloe vera? If not, just give it a try.
