A couple days ago I noticed that the lip angle on the left side had cracked due to dry skin. Since then I have put vaseline as frequently as possible. Since the injury is on a frequently moved area, it is taking a long time to heal. Is there anything to speed up recovery?

Hi, you may have angular stomatitis which could be due to vitamin deficiency or fungal infection and is worse with dryness of winters. Please see a dermatologist so that necessary medication may be initiated. Try avoiding wetting your lips with your tongue.
Let me know if you need any further assistance in this regard. Take care
