Exfoliative cheilitis is a chronic skin condition that involves the lips. It is characterized by persistent peeling of the lips including dryness and flaking of the lips. The continuous peeling off of the lips will later reveal raw skin and later the symptoms such as burning, fissure, crack and pain.
Exfoliative cheilitis has no specific treatment but there are several methods which can help in alleviating the symptoms.

Application of lip balm at least twice a day or when necessary to keep the lips moistPractice good oral hygieneInclusion of organic fruits and vegetables in the dietTake vitamins and other supplements to replenish the body from nutrient deficiencyA cold compress with water is beneficial for the treatment of exfoliative cheilitisDrink plenty of water to keep the body well hydrated and to keep the lips moist as well
