    Especially in the winter time, my lips get really dry and chappy to the extent I can pull a bunch of skin off. It's gross. I tried using lip balm, but that doesn't really work to well. The other day they got so dry my mouth ripped a little bit on both sides, so it would hurt when I touched that part.
    Any thing I can do to help?

    I'll second that. If you can stand the taste/smell this is by far the best thing on the market. Hell, just put this stuff on before you go to bed, and you'll be all set.

    a lot of the times, dehydration will cause dry, cracked lips....drink more WATER not soda (pop) whatever.....if your pee is yellow, your not drinking enuff water. it should be a light straw color...if not clear.

    I didn't get a chance to buy any today. But I was outside working for 3 hours with the blazer, when my mom came home she thought I ate a bunch of chocolate because parts of my lips had bled, then dried on my lips. yuck!
    Yeah, I only drink about 2-3 glasses a day, sometimes milk and juice too. With braces i'm not supposed to have soda too often. But, I eat these vitamins that make my pee turn bright yellow, so it's hard to tell sometimes.
    I will pick up either blistex, carmex, or that vasaline stuff someone mentioned. Depending on if they have it at safeway or not.
    Thanks!

    I used to have the same problem, many years ago.
    Now I have an addiction to chapstick, I carry one with me every where, I keep several new packages around the places I work and live, if I even think I'm without it my lips chap almost instantly. but the stuff works.
    I hate Carmex! my second Ex used it all the time, everytime I smell it that's what I think of:yikes: what a train wreck I am:thinking:

    Another vote for carmex....


    Put it on before bedtime, and you'll notice a difference by morning. Being a dipper, and with work, spending a bit of time out in the weather here and there, I tend to get chapped/wind burned lips. As soon as I feel it starting I grab the carmex... problem solved.
