I had to deal with my upper lip being very dry and chapped where lip balm was not helping. I looked up some herbal remedies and tried out honey and calendula cream. worked amazing healed it about a week. used it day and night, and reapplied when it came off from eating drinking and that sort of stuff. It went away but not sure if and when it will come back.

Smile chapped upper lip

I have found something that really helped my chapped upper lip. CeraVe Healing Ointment for cracked and chafed skin. After reading everyone's responses on this and different sites, I went looking for something. I read somewhere that someone had talked about "ceramides". So I looked and found this lifesaver.....at least it was for me. My upper lip was very chapped, red and swollen, looked like I had either been hit in the lip or stung by something. Nothing I tried had helped, other than a few minutes relief when I would first put something on. It was difficult to eat, as anything with salt or the least bit spicy just made my lip go crazy.
I have been using this for about 3 days and I immediately got relief. My lip is no longer swollen or chapped.....still a little sensitive, but nothing like it was. I got mine at Super Target. Hope this helps you.

It would be very red and dry, especially near the top of the lip, and scaly in the middle. I have tried many different kinds of lip balms, and nothing works. I would break a Vitamin E pill and put it directly on my lips, and that would seem to help after couple of days...but I have to do it at least 4-5 times a day ( and put lip balm in between ). Did anyone have this happen to them?

I'm currently having this problem ( again ), and I have no idea how to get rid of it. In the past two months, I would rub Vitamin E and take a multi-vitamin orally, and I don't know did that help after couple of days or something else, but my top lip got better. Is it possible that I can have some vitamin deficiency that's causing my top lip to crack? So far, this has been going on for 3 days...It's interesting that it's only my top lip. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

This I believe is the same condition that usually affects only the lower lip.

Is your tongue coated white?
Have you taken antibiotics?
Do you eat a lot of sugary foods?
Alcohol is the same as sugar.


Have you researched Candida Albicans?
You might ask your doctor for a prescription for Fluconazole.
Lab work typically does not include a Count of the Candida.
Do the research. You may get results from essential oils.


I had it bad. I got to the point where I had food allergies. Why don't doctors know that food allergies can be an indication of Candida overgrowth? It has been 4 years, and I can now eat most foods. I do use essential oils. Even with them I had to be careful. Oil of Oregano is the best, but you have to mix it with Ceylon Cinnamon Oil, and take it with food, otherwise it will burn your stomach.



Candida Overgrowth may be the base for many other chronic diseases.



DO the Research!!!

I can't see your lip so I can't tell how much it looks like what I had. Do you wear dentures or an appliance at night to keep from teeth grinding or "jaw jacking"?



Both my lips were chapped and nothing seemed to work on it. Went to the Dr and got a diagnosis of angular chelitis. A non threatening but annoying fungal infection caused by .. get this... excessive slobbering or whatever the clinical term for slobbering is. People who are breaking in dentures can get it. They don't notice the increased salivating during the day because they're constantly licking their lips. In my case I had been wearing a nighttime anti-jaw-jacking doo-hicky that was causing the hyper salivating at night.

Not sure which term is worse:

Slobbering
drooling

I'll take the category of "Learn Something New Every Day" for 500, Alex!

And, the answer is:

Medical terms for excessive drooling include ptyalism, sialorrhea, or salivary incontinence.

Aren't you glad you asked?

I didn't actually ask but the answer was interesting. Ya know what the cure for this minor lip-chapping fungus was? Put some cream on it that also happens to be the same thing you put on athlete's foot. Nothing like repurposing stuff.
