Hello there, Sip water or sugar-free drinks or suck ice chips throughout the day to moisten your mouth, and drink water during meals to aid chewing and swallowing...Chew sugar-free gum or suck on sugar-free hard candies. Try over-the-counter saliva substitutes that contain carboxymethylcellulose .. Breathe through your nose, not your mouth. ..Add moisture to the air at night with a room humidifier...Moisturize your lips to soothe dry or cracked areas.
