Refrain from licking your lips as it will only worsen your dryness and cause further irritation. Avoid lip sticks, lip gloss for time being. If you use lip balms opt for non coloured, fragrance free, bland lip balms. Use them as frequently as and when you feel dryness. Avoid gel based toothpastes. If nothing works seek help from dermatologist. Warm regards Dr Pinanky Jadhav
