Chapped Lips

Chapped Lips | Symptoms & Signs | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

Some cases of chapped lips can be avoided by eliminating the cause of the condition. For example, chapping from an allergic reaction to a skin care product will go away when the individual stops using the product. Other measures to prevent chapped lips include the following:

  • avoiding frequent licking of the lips
  • avoiding unnecessary exposure to cold weather, sun, or wind
  • applying lip balm frequently
  • eliminating any skin care products that may be triggering an allergic reaction
  • avoiding smoking
  • drinking plenty of water
